Reviews - What do customers think about Only In Holland, Only The Dutch?

It's not the Undutchables. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.   Dec 29, 2006
Marc Resch makes a particular point, in the book that " whacky " the Dutch are NOT!! He quotes the Dutch saying: "Doe maar gewoon. Dan doe je al gek genoeg." (Act normally. That's crazy enough.) As a Dutch-born Australian. (Actually, I seem to have kept my Dutch nationality as well.) I am very happy with this description of the Dutch from an American's point of view.
I certainly thoroughly enjoyed the book. It did not make me chuckle, like The Undutchables, but it gave me lots of food for thought. Consolidated things I knew and echoed many of my thoughts about the Dutch way of doing things, after living 50 years in Australia, and visiting the Netherlands briefly four times, since leaving there, in 1956, when pillarization was only just beginning to wane.
Whacky? No!! Unique people? (Mmmmm.) By the way, Mr Turnbull, it's "its"!
Only in Holland, Only the Dutch  Dec 13, 2005
What a great insight into the wacky world of the Dutch! I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in first hand experience with The Kingdom of the Netherlands (the what??). This book covers Dutch history, it's cultural ideologies and of course it's very unique people! Change up your reading list and pick up this Xpat's very unique view of the Dutch in all their glory!
A Must Read  Jun 22, 2005
Fantastic read - really helped me to understand the Dutch and their culture and was especially relevant since I was visiting Amsterdam for the first time. Gave me a interesting insight into the history of the Dutch, the architecture and definately made me appreciate my few days there having had that background knowledge. I would certainly recommend it, not only was it informative but it was fun to read also. Made my trip more pleasurable - thanks.
