Customer Review

on 27 April 2009
This book is written by an Amsterdammer who is fascinated by and proud of his city. As with "In Europe", he does not avoid cool, realistic assessments of those involved in the development of his subject, even if some of these are uncomfortable at times. He uses Amsterdam as a microcosm of the Netherlands at large. This should not be taken too far: not many Britons would wish to be regarded as Londoners manque. However it is an interesting slant on a fascinating story.

As ever, Mak exhibits an outstanding grasp of detail together with the ability to draw the reader into his story. Whilst in no way a guide book, to read it before visiting the city will add a very rich layer of enjoyment and understanding of a fascinating place.
