Review:

This book makes a valuable contribution to the sustainable hospitality, tourism and wine industry by bringing together a variety of different but complementary sector community and industry stakeholders, practitioners and specialists with multidisciplinary perspectives with geographical coverage from the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Oceania. The book is accessible to all those interested in understanding the various issues related to sustainable hospitality, tourism and wine, where it has been, where it is today and where it is going in the future. This book is an essential read for all in the industry, the public and private sectors as well as NGOs. The Good Company continues to shape and impact our travel behaviors, decisions, purchasing patterns and strategic management decisions. Therefore, understanding and appreciating these ever changing dynamics will allow us to better actively engage in, meet, respond to the universal needs of family tourism. --Dr. D'Arcy Dornan Trend School, Center for Business Communication | Executive Education and Development Specialist

At last, a book that tackles the topic of sustainability in the global travel industry, but with a real understaning of its economic importance as a better alternative--a must read. --Michael McCloskey, former Chairman of The Sierra Club

This much-needed work is essentially a cookbook, filled with inspiring recipes for sustainable travel. This will be a valuable resource, for everyone from students to industry leaders, for many years to come. --Jeff Greenwald, Executive Director, Ethical Traveler
