Perhaps I'm being too critical given this textbook is intended to be an introduction to the hospitality industry, however I found parts of it to be common knowledge and irrelevant. There were many instances that I felt the author was redundant when discussing certain topics just to make the sections longer, however it was unnecessary - the point had been made and understood without reiterating it over and over.
Beyond this, the book does a pretty good job of explaining the ins and outs of the hospitality industry for someone who is completely unfamiliar (but let's be honest, if you're taking a class that requires this book you probably have a basic knowledge of hospitality). If you don't have any knowledge or experience in hospitality then this book is for you - if you have even the slightest experience in hospitality then you'll be bored.
