Editorial Reviews

Review

“In The Business of Resort Management, Peter Murphy expands the boundaries of more traditional approaches to understanding the business of tourism This book provides an excellent basis for understanding the breadth and complexity of resort management.”
Alison Gill, Professor of Geography and Associate Dean of Arts and Social Sciences at Simon Fraser University, Canada

“Murphy has succinctly analyzed the resort industry both past and present. What I particularly appreciate is his understanding of the role health tourism will play as the population ages and the opportunities it presents for the resort industry of the future."
Kathryn Stolle, President of SLK Total Spa Concepts

The author provides theoretical analysis, discussion and case studies which give accurate description, explanation and practical know-how of past and present industry practices to provide convincing value for students, teachers and resort business managers alike."
Eleanore Fitz, Director of Programs at the Albury-Wodonga Campus of La Trobe University School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management, La Trobe University
