    For Dummies

    I am so happy that I don't have to write this book!

    I have been an Innkeeper and now an Inn Consultant for 15 years. One of the things on my to do list was to put together all of my thoughts and blog articles into a book on Innkeeping which updated all of the prior ones that are no longer available. Now I am just thrilled that Mary White has written the definitive work on Innkeeping, and, of course, now I don't have to do it.We tell our prospective innkeepers in our Seminars on Innkeeping a lot of the information that Mary has compiled, but here it is all in one place and easily accessible to everyone. Nothing left out and a clear understanding that Innkeeping is a 24/7 job with a lot of sacrifices. It is not retirement, and it is not Bob Newhart in a cardigan sweater. Mary lays it all out for the reader, clearly and with all of the downsides, as well as the joys of sharing your lives as innkeepers with some of the greatest guests that you could every hope to meet. We always said that they came as guests and left the... 5/5 Howard J.
