Author: Hunt Janin & Ria Van Eil
Title: Culture Shock! Netherlands
Publication Info: Marshall Cavendish Corporation (2008)
ISBN: 0761454926


This guide to for customs and etiquette of the Netherlands was not particularly helpful as far as planning for my upcoming travel there.  Most of it boiled down to be polite, don’t be arrogant, and respect other people which is good advice but not really targeted to the Netherlands.  There were some good points about the Dutch being very direct people and to not take offense at that as well as tips on what to do if invited to someone’s home.  There are also sections that would be useful to someone making an extended stay and/or conducting business in the Netherlands
