Other topics include Dutch moralizing & criticizing, cozy Dutch homes, flowers & plants, money & thriftiness, work ethics, welfare, commercial cunning, telephone habits, the national passion, rules for shopping, driving, Dutch customs, bikes, language, gay community, food, sex, drugs, phobias, the Dutch abroad and the 1995 flood disaster. This book is a must for anyone with Dutch connections and who enjoys wit and humor. A perennial best-seller in Europe, and an increasingly popular book in North America.
