Dealing with the Dutch is a publication which covers many aspects of Dutch mentality; of special interest to those from other countries who work in the Netherlands or 'do business with the Dutch'.

The book has grown out of experiences in the training department of KIT, where for many years Dutch multinationals and government organisations have sent their foreign employees for courses on Dutch culture and society. It contains all the do's and don'ts in Dutch business culture.
