About the Book
Amsterdam Exposed tells the true one-of-a-kind story of an innocent exchange student who moves to Amsterdam hoping to write a book about the red light district and everything that follows. It’s an American abroad story, and also a love story; it’s an uplifting tragedy, full of humor from beginning to end; it’s an Amsterdam survival guide; a sympathetic look at a societal problem; a little piece of policy; a sweet farewell to a world just about gone; and, ultimately, as close as you can come to a free trip to Amsterdam without leaving your couch. In sum, Amsterdam Exposed takes readers deep into the district on a journey never before possible, forever reshaping their understanding of one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world, and the women who work there. If you’ve ever spent time in Amsterdam, or dreamed of doing so, this book’s for you.

I have no words for this book, I am just glad David kept his word and wrote the book. I can’t began to explain how much this book really touched my heart though. So much that I can say, love can be found anywhere and things can happen.
Throughout this book, it has been a constant game of waiting for someone to help him write his book. I don’t believe me says this will ruin anything but when he finally did find the person who was going to help. She basically caught feelings for him from the very beginning. The ending is what will really catch you off guard.
I would recommend this book to anybody who loves a good non-Fiction book as I have enjoyed this book.
