The book is in awesome condition and is exactly what I needed. It took a little longer than I liked for it to get here though. Other than that, it's great!

This book is not really for a college level is more like a high school level, much if the information is just like other books, nothing special about this book, for a college level and for someone that is going to be into the Hospitality Industry I expected more about the hospitality industry real world experience. I wonder what the HTI interactive activities are all about, I couldn't get into that since you need to pay more to have access to it.
