    All ideas and philosophies are taken from other leaders and books. Just reworded to take credit. He has been funded by a wealthy family in Chicago. His businesses wouldn’t be in business if he wasn’t consistently bailed out by that family.

    This book is very inspiring and informative. I've highlighted many sections for use in cultivating hospitality within my company. I would recommend this book to any customer service based business.
