That's a really good friend Macky.

It's also available on Audio book for those so inclined.

Would love to meet the author one day, we seem to share a deep love of Amsterdam. He is active in the John Adams institute in Amsterdam.

Posted something similar under 'Other Amsterdam' but Russell Shorto and this excellent book can't get too much pressviewtopic.php?f=16&t=33598

Thanks for the "Heads Up!"

Eddie and wifey have a Fall trip to Amsterdam in the planning stages. We're taking an "Amster-virgin" whose birthday happens to be in early June. Guess what she's getting as a present :D :mrgreen:

P.s. A Belated Happy Birthday to You!
