I've been in the travel industry since 1996, and in order to keep my competitive edge it requires me to stay on top of the ever changing trends. It is easy to do with Dr. Mancini's textbooks and training DVDs. But, when I opened this book (ACCESS, Introduction to Travel and Tourism) I actually said "WOW". I was very pleased with the layout, font size, contents of the book and the color selection used in highlighting the "Insider Tips". Yes, you can put your highlighter pen down because it's done for you. Like its author (Dr. Mancini) this book is filled will real-life travel experiences and it's a fun and easy read. Pick it up and compare it to other ordinary travel textbooks -- and you'll find there's no comparison! by Lynn J - aka (Gayle)
