    I found out about this book when my mother bought me a copy; she works with a family member of the author and she thought I would be interested in reading it (she had not read it herself). I'll admit I read it to humor her - it was not something I would have picked out myself. However, I really ended up enjoying it, much more than anticipated. Right up front: the one con about this book is that the writing is a bit "stream of consciousness" which may not be everyone's cup of tea.

I'll admit I read it to humor her - it was not something I would have picked out myself. However, I really ended up enjoying it, much more than anticipated. Right up front: the one con about this book is that the writing is a bit "stream of consciousness" which may not be everyone's cup of tea. I don't know that it "flowed" that well; it was a bunch of thoughts put together. Because of this, I'm planning to go back and read it again soon; there are topics I would like to have pondered a little more before moving on, but it wasn't always clear when it was transitioning to another topic completely vs going to circle back later. There are many more pros than cons. One pro is that at about 150 pages, it's a quick read! If it were longer, I wouldn't be considering re-reading it so soon, and I doubt I would be able to convince my husband to read it (which I'm planning to do). I read a good chunk of the book on a 2-hour flight. Even though it's slim, there are dozens of practical ideas for increasing the hospitality in your own life. Another pro is the interesting subject matter - there's a bit of "behind-the-scenes" at a restaurant, a bit of philosophy, a bit of travel/culture, and a lot of relatable situations. Even if you don't work in a customer-facing job, there are pieces of advice that are just good for interacting with any other person. One thing I'm going to work on is being sincere in my words - not saying "How's it going" out of habit, but only if I am truly interested in stopping and hearing about how it's going. The last pro is that reading this book just left me feeling happy. It's kind of a corny book, but the author's enthusiasm and joy come through every page, and it makes me feel better just knowing that there are people out there in the world like this. The interview with the Kindness Kids in the last chapter was so uplifting. At the end of the book, I also had some actionable items for myself to bring that happy feeling into my own daily life. I'd recommend this to people who are interested in any of the many subjects: restaurants, philosophy, Hawaii, kindness, working well with others, or making your day better!

    I read this as a professional development book after starting my new job as an executive admin. I highlighted a few lines but by the end I was skimming pages. The book is a lot of anecdotes and short stories which are great to learn from, I think the hard part for me was this isn't a topic I am really invested in and I read this more because I felt I should read books like this. I will say if you are looking for the kind of step-by-step, do x, y, z then you will be disappointed.

I will say if you are looking for the kind of step-by-step, do x, y, z then you will be disappointed. This is (in my opinion) more of a philosophy type book that looks at the world around us and how we could involve the idea of "hospitality" into all aspects of our lives, not just our work lives.

    After winning a copy of this book I was excited to thumb through it and see what I could take from it. However I ended up reading every page and can safely say this book exceeded all my expectations. A part in the middle dragged for me slightly but overall I can't say enough good things about the way he tackles hospitality from every conceivable angle and gave me so much to think about in my work and personal life. I'm sure I'll be re-reading chapters from time to time. After winning a copy of this book I was excited to thumb through it and see what I could take from it.

    I won this in a giveaway. I like the simplicity of the message and the various ways the author talked about how to become a hospitalitarian. A simple reminder that with a little effort and listening you can totally make someone’s day.
