This book/Audio Book is great! I may be moving to Amsterdam in a few months and wanted to learn more about its history. I’ve been to the city many times but didn’t really know the history. This audio book literally made me laugh and cry. It was very interesting. You will learn about the ancient history all the way to recent history. I was very impressed. The only thing I didn’t like about the audio book is the CDs end in random places, even cutting off some words sometimes. But other than that I highly recommend. I will definitely seek out other books/audio books by this author. I use audio books because I am not very good at reading but I also like to follow along with the physical book too. If that’s also what you like to do than this will definitely be a good option for you.
