From the Inside Flap
The world's leading school of hotel administration now offers a com-prehensive overview of the hospi-tality industry. Comprised of contributions from twenty-eight Cornell University faculty members, The Cornell School of Hotel Administration on Hospitality outlines all of the best practices and hospitality management strategies they teach to their students.
Cornell's book covers cutting edge thinking and practice within four key areas in the hospitality industry. The first section outlines your career path in hospitality. How do you break in? How do you develop yourself to become a leader? Learn the key skills, knowledge, and personality traits that will make this career a good fit for you. Section 2 explains how to attract the right customers, deliver the service they expect, and set the right price, all while managing employees to achieve your firm's goals.
Section 3 focuses on how to achieve success by owning businesses, owning real estate underlying the businesses, or both, with an emphasis on profitability and cash flow. The final section covers the requirements for success at the corporate office: choose the right strategy, manage your brand, coordinate information, control costs, and implement the right systems to achieve success at multiple locations simultaneously.
Cornell University's School Of Hotel Administration, the first collegiate program in hospitality management, was founded in 1922. Today, it is regarded as the world leader in its field.

After entering hotel business this book served me as a bible for the last half a year. Concise, yet full of systematic knowledge.
The best chapters in the book for me were about soft skills:
The listening fast track
Becoming a leader in the hospitality industry
The integrity dividend in hospitality leadership
Developing and managing your multinational career
For someone who is new to this business this resource gave a nice logical framework for career development.
Excellent reference book even if some management practices are not applicable to smaller operations.
