This book had lots of ideas for things to see and do. Alot of it had to do with bike riding, which wasn't helpful for me, but would be to others. It is difficult to use this kind of book on the nook, as you can't dog ear pages - or easily use it while touring.

My best friend and I spent 10 days in and around Amsterdam and carried this book with us every day. We benefitted from Steves' suggestions as to what time of day to visit certain museums to avoid long lines and what restaurants were in the area; his breakdown of restaurants by price saved time also. In all, this book was invaluable with tips and historical narrative on all there is to see and do in The Netherlands.

As usual, Rick Steves' information is good, but the non-color Nook is not a good format, as the maps are illegible. In addition, it's difficult to go back and find information due to the limited # of bookmarks allowed and the inability to label a bookmark. Also, not all information is hyperlinked, such as the Index which also didn't provide page numbers. I thought this would be a great way to carry the book with me, but will opt for the paper version in the future.
