I truly believe this book should be a key text for Hospitality and Tourism Students especially those following the Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality (CTH) Postgraduate Course. The book is loaded with world class Case Studies which makes bringing the real world to the classroom easier for lecturers. The author relates theory to practice in a very unique way through the case studies. Highly recommended!!!
