Review by

This is an excellent shorter version of Steves' book on Amsterdam, which is packed with practical information about the city, walking tours and maps, descriptions and photographs of the major neighborhoods and museums, and guides on where to stay and to eat. I was mildly annoyed at his somewhat condescending and heavy handed view of the city's Red Light District and the legal marijuana shops, and I felt as if I was a potentially wayward teenager getting advice from a church elder. Ignoring that, this is an excellent guide book to the Amsterdam, and I'll refer to it frequently when I go there.
