Overview

Take a wild and bumpy ride through the world of hotel management in the new book So Many Hotels, So Little Time.

See the inner workings of a hotel and live the dramas that play out behind the scenes in the backdrop of hotels of all shapes and sizes.

Author Kenneth Vincent writes about his vast experiences that cover forty-six years, from 1954 to 2000. The hotel locations range over 22 states, a U.S. territory, and four other countries.

He says, "I wanted to share the exciting, and sometimes scary world of hotel management. This book is a must-read for anyone intending to pursue a career in the hotel business, and an entertaining adventure to others who might never have stayed in one or have extensively traveled on business or pleasure."

About the Author: Kenneth Vincent describes his age as "71 going on 150." Now retired, the author formed and operated a hotel management corporation and seven other related companies. He lives in Panama City, Florida. His next book is a political satire titled The Republic of Tranquility.

A Note From the Author: I have taken the liberty of borrowing a technique from James Michener, a writer I greatly respect. The first third of the book deals with specific technicalities to set the stage for the story. The remainder is a synopsis of true events I have experienced in my career that are entertaining, amusing, strange, shocking and unbelievable. Anyone that travels extensively should find a new insight into what has been merely an overnight stay in the past.
Enjoy! KV

    Having spent 30+ years traveling the globe (a mix of business and pleasure travel), we thought we actually understood the "ins and outs" of hotels, motels and all that lies in between. That is until we had the opportunity to read Ken's book - a remarkable education, journey and adventure across the hospitality landscape. A must-read for anyone who thinks they "know" the inner-workings of the hotel business, and particularly for anyone contemplating a career in "the business."
