Why the Dutch are Different

A Journey into the Hidden Heart of the Netherlands: From Amsterdam to Zwarte Piet, the acclaimed guide to travel in Holland

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

´Provides the answers to all the questions I had but didn´t dare ask about the Netherlands´ DutchNews

Stranded at Schiphol airport, Ben Coates called up a friendly Dutch girl he´d met some months earlier. He stayed for dinner. Actually, he stayed for good.

Ben Coates delves into the heart of his adopted homeland and discovers why Amsterdam´s brothels are going out of business, who really killed Anne Frank and why the colour orange is so important. He also discovers a country that is changing fast, with the Dutch now questioning many of the liberal policies that made their country famous.

You´ll find out why the Dutch are...

the tallest people on Earth

closing prisons through lack of demand

not as environmentally friendly as everyone thinks

voracious cheese-eaters

A personal portrait of a fascinating people, a sideways history and an entertaining travelogue, this is the story of a man who went Dutch - and loved it.

´Full of fascinating details. Coates is entirely convincing in his affectionate portrait´ Prospect

´Vivid and informative. Coates intertwines the nation´s journey to its modern iteration with his own adaptation to the Dutch lifestyle. An accomplished debut´ Geographical
