Editorial Reviews

Larry Wilson
This excellent training guide provides step-by-step coverage of all the critical principles and procedures in hotel management: reservations, housekeeping and guest services, cash and credit card control, check-in, and check-out. This revised and expanded Third Edition discusses all the ins and outs of front office routines in clear and practical terms.
Peter Senge
"Robert Fritz brings a rare combination of artistic training, intellectual rigor, and breadth of experience to the subject of enhancing our capacities for creating meaningful lives. The principles and approach in The Path of Least Resistance have become a cornerstone in my work to help leaders and managers deal productively with complexity and change." - Dr. Peter Senge, Director, Programs for Systems Thinking and Organizational Learning at MIT
Willis Harmon
"The Path of Least Resistance is a thoroughly tested tool for creating. It is profound in it's implications, yet easily understood; powerful in application, yet entertaining to read." - Willis Harmon, Author of Global Mind Change, President of Institute of Noetic Sciences
W. Mathew Juechter
"This book may be to the practice of creativity what Peter Drucker's books are to the practice of management. Robert Fritz clarifies the process of creativity and shows that it is available to everyone." - W. Mathew Juechter, Chairman, IRA, Inc.
Library Journal
Using as analogy the scientific principle that energy follows the path of least resistance, the founder of the DMA seminars attempts an easily assimilated self-help book--a substantial revision of his 1984 best seller. He argues that just as wind moves around natural obstructions, seeking the path of least resistance, so do we attempt to move around the structures of our lives--getting by with as few hassles as possible. Fritz's advice is to modify the structures, enabling the creative energy within to flourish instead of dissipate. Initially, his focus is clear; but numerous citings of well-known psychologists and famous movers and shakers (Einstein, Henry Moore, etc.) grow tiresome as Fritz drones on, losing us in excess verbiage. Some valuable sections, but most will find this tedious. Not recommended.-- Kevin M. Roddy, Oakland P.L., Cal.
