    1. The thing with Amsterdam Exposed is that it s such a well meaning book, it s difficult to disparage it in any way But then again, not impossible, so well, it s ok, it really is It s about a 26 year old American law student who goes to Amsterdam for a semester to study abroad, but mainly with a view to write a book about the prostitution situation there Don t smirk, it s surprisingly unseedy and almost overwhelmingly sincere No money exchanges, he wants someone to voluntarily tell him their story [...]


    2. Firstly, I have to warn potential readers that this book contains frank discussions and detailed descriptions about adult issues and is 100% NOT SUITABLE FOR READERS UNDER THE AGE OF EIGHTEEN This book also contains details of several trauma triggers Included topics include drug use, rape, child abuse, suicidal thoughts, and detailed sexual encounter descriptions The author began working on this book in 1999 when he was in Law school studying in Amsterdam for a semester Anyone who has ever given [...]


    3. This is a tough book to review It left me feeling sad While I was somewhat amused by the author s take of the Netherlands and the Dutch people, the main subject matter of the book is disturbing Several many years ago, the author spent a semester of law school in Amsterdam studying International Law At least, that was what he was supposed to be doing His real motive in going to Amsterdam was to indulge his voyeuristic tendencies and explore the red light district He wanted to discover why women c [...]


    4. To start, I do realize there can be and has been changed much since the writer of this book was in Amsterdam So does he Different from what he expected to write when he came here, he wrote mostly a very personal story about his experiences and those of Emma.It being a personal story is what made this book so good in my eyes I started it with some reservations, to be honest Here was an American guy, who had been in Amsterdam almost 20 years ago, who wanted to tell about the red light district The [...]


    5. I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of Amsterdam Exposed, and needless to say, it did not disappoint Notorious for getting bored and losing interest in books half way through, imagine my surprise as I finished Amsterdam Exposed in just one weekend Eager to see how the story would unfold, I could NOT put this book down.This is a perfect read for explorers, world travelers, students, and corporate desk jockeys Perfect for believers in the power of the human connection or those seeking g [...]


    6. I received an advanced copy and these are my thoughts This book is not only inspiring, but truly refreshing It welcomes the reader into a world that is often stigmatized and misunderstood In this book, that world is illuminated by truth, empathy and sincere curiosity It is the adventure of a pure soul seeking the questions most travelers are too weary to ask or too complacent to ponder Amsterdam Exposed is truly that, Amsterdam exposed This is a must read


    7. This book took me on the most incredible journey to a place I have always wanted to know about This is a sweet and endearing story about a young man who fell in love with a city and a prostitute who worked there The ending was sad and touching I appreciated the writers lack of judgment and instead used the book to describe what he saw in a beautiful way.


    8. David Wienir is an LA entertainment lawyer, who has authored four books Although this is the most recent one he s published, he started writing it back in 1999 as a law school student prowling Amsterdam s Red Light District for literary content It surprises me that Wienir waited 18 years to release this, in the midst of Mansplaining, the MeToo movement, and all the Harvey Weinstein fallout, without referencing or even seeming to be aware of any of it Wienir gives political correctness a wide ber [...]
