Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Al vanaf verschijnen in 1997 een doorslaand succes. Ruim 70.000 exemplaren verkocht en inmiddels toe aan een vierde grondige herziening (19e editie). Vossestein, die inmiddels meerdere succesvolle titels op zijn naam heeft staan, beschrijft in 'Dealing with the Dutch' Nederland voor buitenlanders die werken met Nederlanders. Hij gaat in op geschiedenis en maatschappij en analyseert en passant de vermeende tolerantie en Nederlandse vrijheden. De nieuwe geheel herzien editie van 'Dealing with the Dutch' gaat op dezelfde luchtige toon als de eerste editie in op de specifiek Nederlandse manier van leven en werken. Recente maatschappelijke veranderingen krijgen bijzondere aandacht.

Format: Paperback
Dealing with the Dutch manages to surpass the stereotypes and superficiality of most books on cultural differences. The practical points are highly educational, while the entertaining examples keep you glued to your seat. This book is worthwhile for anyone living in the Netherlands, or dealing with its people.

A bridge connecting two cultures 8 May 2000
By Wouter Wessel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a Dutch-American cross-cultural trainer I have read the gamut of literature dealing with this subject. Mr. Vossestein's 'Dealing with the Dutch' is the most concise, clearly written book on the subject. The book's non-judgemental approach gives future immigrants to the Netherlands a thorough understanding of and a simple guide line to life in this fascinating land by the sea.

Please reprint this excellent book 23 Aug. 2000
By sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the best introduction to Dutch business culture available. It is uncluttered, and makes connections between different aspects of Dutch behaviour to develop a broad picture suitable for business people from any background.

a mirror for Dutch abroad 28 Jun. 2004
By meulensteen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Most books on cultural stereotypes try to be funny. Often jokes work only for those already in the know, or worse, they are misleading to those who aren't.
Aimed at expats and others working with the Dutch, Mr Vossestein has written a serious book. The goal is to inform, not to get cheap laughs (though many of the anecdotes from foreigners interacting with the Dutch are quite entertaining).
Perhaps the greatest value of this book is as a mirror for Dutch travelling abroad. After all, understanding other people's culture starts with understanding your own. This book should be compulsory reading for all Dutch expats.
