Great guide, very informative and we found no incorrect information as other reviews have suggested.
Enjoy your trip!
For the record, if anyone with young kids in interested, I'd recommend taking or hiring bikes and heading into the Vondelpark - good playgrounds and big paddling pool in middle. Also there's a good open space with outdoor cafe between the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, where they can run off steam. Also, if you have a car, a trip to one of the North Sea beaches is a good day out.
It helped me plan our 3 night stay. We bought an "I Amsterdam ' card for free travel and entry to everything but Ann franks huis and we hammered it. We were at loads of places. The book tells you opening times etc of the attractions. Amsterdam is brilliant and for a city break I prefer this guide to 'lonely planets'.
It did not disappoint, excellent city walk x 2, good recommendations on eating places (Sea Palace floating Chinese restaurant excellent), good details on getting around and what to see.Recommended without hesitation.
