I found this in Dymocks today @ $24.95, it looks like a useful introduction to Thai/SE Asian food if you don't already have one or more other good cook books.
The full details are:
Thai & South-East Asian Cooking & Far Eastern Classics
Deh-Ta Hsiung, Becky Johnson and Sallie Morris
Hermes House 2004 (apprently a combination of two previous volumes by these authors)
It's soft cover, about a large novel format, with 512 pages, fully illustrated. The first 126 pages have useful detailed descriptions and pictures of Ingredients of all sorts and some basic equipment/techniques. It lists some sources of ingredients at the back, including some from most Aus states, not sure how current the list is though.
The recipes are mostly fairly simple (and simplified in some cases), but would be good for a beginner/intermediate cook interested in these lovely styles of food. It provides recipes originating from Thailand, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Burma, Vietnam, Japan and the Phillipines.
If you don't already have Charmaine Solomon Asian Cookbook and your cook book shelf isn't full yet, have a look, it might suit you.

Life's too short to drink white wine and red wine is better for you too! :-)
