About "The Amsterdam Confessions of a Shallow Man"

Explore the trials and tribulations of supremely superficial Londoner turned Amsterdammer Simon Woolcot, as he describes a month of his life as a spoiled expat in the Dutch capital.

Challenged by a friend to examine his own shallow nature, this diary offers a hilarious read of Woolcot's exploits, observations and adventures in Amsterdam.

From dating Dutch women to neighbourhood characterisations and unwritten dress codes in the Netherlands, this haughty Brit offers his poignant opinion in a witty and sarcastic narrative style that the reader can't help but love.

Will Simon realise the depths of his shallowness before it's too late?

About the author

Along with being the man behind, Simon Woolcot is an IT director by day and our protagonist with a knack for revealing Amsterdam’s subtleties from a very particular perspective.

Preferring colourful ties, tailored suits and a rigorous grooming routine, Woolcot is a successful expat with a good job, a busy social life and a profound sense of (British) humour that elevates mundane cultural differences to hilarity in his writings on Amsterdam.
