KIRKUS REVIEW

Business is the excuse for George's chance for a year in Holland, and with his contemporaries he manages to see a lot of the country and to learn something of the special problems the Dutch face in their ""lowlands"". Amsterdam is given, naturally perhaps (but the other books do not fall into this trap) a disproportionate amount of space, and Amsterdam comes to life as other parts of Holland do not. One could wish, too, that there has been less of a somewhat categorical charting of things to be learned, and more of the sense of participation that characterizes France and Sweden.
