New Book


Greg Shapiro – The American Netherlander – is known from the ‘Netherlands Second’ video, Comedy Central, an Boom Chicago. He now celebrates 25 years in the Netherlands by revealing his hilariously clumsy assimilation into Dutch society.


If you are looking for an official guide to Dutch culture, this is not it. BUT if you are looking for one man’s completely subjective and utterly quirky impression of Dutch culture, then this book is for you.


In THE AMERICAN NETHERLANDER: 25 Years of Expat Tales, Shapiro combines elements of his first book How to Be Orange and his second book How to Be Dutch: the Quiz – featuring all the questions that SHOULD be on the Dutch citizenship exam.
