Here is an older thread that covers the same ground.

I would suggest a google of-------Amsterdam Guide Books

You will see lots of discussions about a lot of different books. You can see which one sounds more like what you want.

My fav is the Get Lost The Cool Guide to Amsterdam. But that is not one I would suggest for you.

This question gets asked a lot. A search in that box above will bring up pages worth of TA threads on this topic.

Of course to the right of this Amsterdam page there are the Top Questions

There is a lot of good advice to be found there..

I'm also a fan of the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Guides.

I use them everywhere and we have a copy at home for guests coming to stay in Amsterdam.

I pretty much have all of them. The DK is certainly the most beautiful with lovely graphics, but is also the heaviest. I am going to take along the "Pocket Lonely Planet" and "Time Out Shortlist Amsterdam". They are well presented and information dense. And not too heavy. The rest I am studying, but will leave at home.
