Reviews

Lovers of Amsterdam will revel in the exhaustive reconstruction of everyday life in the medieval city * Independent on Sunday *
A strong sense of irony and a lively prose style make Geert Mak's Amsterdam one of the most unusual and engaging 'city books' I have read this year * Sunday Times *
Mak's brief is... to bring Amsterdam into the modern age. This he does with wit and style. But his real achievement... is to make accessible unfussily - and unsentimentally - one of Europe's most astonishing urban success stories -- James Woodall * Financial Times *
This excellent book is more than essential -- Irvine Welsh
