Format:Paperback
This is a review of the 2011 edition. The other reviews for this book was made in 2008 and 2009...so clearly they're in the wrong place.

I think this guide is excellent...and I live in Amsterdam. It still has that open and positive style that really digs beyond the regular tourist traps.

The only quibbles I have with this book are the photos and captions. Most of the time they are fine but sometimes they don't exist; are too general; or are wrong or misleading. For example, the caption on the photo on page 121 says it's the Nederlands Scheepvaartmuseum when it is actually houses built in the Eastern Docklands. It doesn't say on page 111 that that it is a rendering of the new Rijksmuseum entrance. Which of the 5 hofjes listed and described on page 103 is pictured?

Worse, on page 58 there is a photo of Vermeer's very popular and iconic painting 'Girl with Pearl Earring' which is not even in Amsterdam (it's in The Hague's Mauritshuis) with the caption 'see page 60.' On page 60 there is nothing about the painting or where it can be viewed. Why not show an equally famous Vermeer painting that is actually in Amsterdam?

Also on page 60 there is a photo of Rembrandt's painting 'The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp' (which is also in The Hague and not in Amsterdam) but in the text on the same page someone recommends Rembrandt's painting 'The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Jan Deijman' which is in the Amsterdam Museum...so why not show a photo of this painting?

On page 54 there is a interesting photo of the very unusual red anaconda or python bridge that I would want visit after seeing that photo. But the caption reads 'Bridge at Eastern Docklands'. There are over 2,000 bridges in Amsterdam. This is a travel guide remember not a mystery novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy book, especially the maps 31 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I always buy a guidebook when going somewhere new, and then hardly using it. The key is that when you DO use it, its helpful.
This book definitely falls into that category. The maps helped find places we wanted to go to, although some of the map refereneces were pretty vague.
The information is pretty up to date, does give some good recommendations, and isnt just aimed at the hardened traveller determined to "do" all the tourist sites in town.
