Conrad N. Hilton

Tracing back to his early childhood in the Territory of New Mexico, Conrad Hilton tells the story of how he built an empire from his first motel in Texas to his purchase of the Waldorf Astoria. I am inspired by “Connie” Hilton’s passion, principles, and good spirit.

Umberto Eco

A dense tome on collected wisdom and aesthetics. I get lost in the pages of rich illustrations.

John F. Kennedy

I loved this book for its view of hope and confidence concerning our future. The series of vignettes are inspiring and spiritual.

Walter Isaacson

An astute and captivating biography of a true visionary.

I was lucky to work with Oscar Niemeyer at the beginning of my career. He was a remarkable man and an inspiration to me, opening my eyes to the world of color and form.

Jonathan M. Tisch
With Karl Weber

Jonathan has an amazing understanding of hospitality and dedication to the happiness of his customers. This book has taught me so much about how to treat clients and customers like guests in my own home.

Danny Meyer

Danny Meyer has built a successful career on the simple principle that the guest experience comes before anything else. As a designer, I share his notion that great hospitality design begins with considering the guest experience. This is a great read for anyone who wants to learn from a man who has mastered the art of simple, honest, and genuine hospitality.
