The travel industry has become HUGE, but surprisingly little is written about the industry itself (as opposed to different types of travel guide books). A few parts of the book drag (I was not particularly interested in reading about the different commissions, etc., promoting travel), but the parts that are interesting (the vast majority of the book) are immensely interesting. Eye opening. Well worth reading.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Read Before You Take/Book a Tour!!!!
Eye-opening book on the travel/tourism business! Read before you book a cruise-especially on a large ship!!and also if you have environmental concerns. Read before you book with a tour company of any kind!! Just had an experience with a tour company, too many people on the bus, some didn't know how to behave properly in Europe. Another company different tour was great! Classy people, knowledgeable tour guide!! savy! Great section on eco-tours, they sound wonderful! China-another honest evaluation you may want to read. Interesting chapter on history of the American tourism industry especially since 9/11. I loved this book, especially as a traveler!!!! Definitely confirmed some concerns and also learned from this author. CAVEAT EMPTOR!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
