4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Trevor Norris on 21 Jan. 2009
Format: Paperback
Quiet Amsterdam is much more than a guidebook. It is a manifesto for careful attention and quiet contemplation. It gently reveals the city by appealing to our senses - asking the reader to imagine what the places in the book feel like - as well as providing beautiful photographs taken by the author. The images show the city and its surrounding parklands throughout the seasons and so the book emerges as a project undertaken over time, inviting the same from the reader and opening up the prospect of many future visits. A rare combination of practical guidebook and evocation of place.

Format: Paperback
Very nicely put together guide to the city of Amsterdam. Written by an author actually living in the city, it has the feel of a private guide to places that a lot of the more recognised sources won't 'bother' to get to. In a small square format it features sections on museums, libraries, parks and gardens, places of worship, bookshops, cafes or restaurants, galleries, and places to sit, or places by the water. There is also a section on small hotels and b&b's - this latter section being full of places with much character and offering a unique experience to a variety of tastes.

My one main criticism would be the disappointing maps in the early pages - not really good enough to use without resorting to either online solutions or a better physical map. That said, it is a very pleasant little guide with a lot to offer in its 144 pages. The photographs are a good mix of colour and b&w, and all in all the design of the book is good. I hope to visit the Netherlands again this year so will look forward to visiting some of these lesser-known places, and will also keep an eye out for the London version by the same author in the same series.

ruined it for everybody 30 Mar. 2015
By Caraculiambro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used to enjoy hanging out in my favorite quiet places in Amsterdam: the Spa Zuvier, Brasserie Bark, the Noorderpark, etc. But they're not quiet anymore, on account of this book! Now they're jam-packed with tourists, all of whom are clutching a copy of this volume in their hands. Thanks a lot, Wall.

It's exactly what I want for my next trip to Amsterdam. Amsterdam is such a busy and fast paced city (and I live in NYC) that knowing where to find a place that allows one to step out of the stream -so to speak- is a big plus.
