Product Description

About the Author

Over the past 25 years, Adam Starchild has been the author of over two dozen books, and hundreds of magazine articles, primarily on business and finance. His articles have appeared in a wide range of publications around the world -- including Business Credit, Euromoney, Finance, The Financial Planner, International Living, Offshore Financial Review, Reason, Tax Planning International, The Bull & Bear, Trust & Estates, and many more.

Now semi-retired, he was the president of an international consulting group specializing in banking, finance and the development of new businesses, including tourist enterprises. He has owned and operated travel agencies, travel wholesalers, and tour operators, and is the author of several books on tourism and travel agencies.

Although this formidable testimony to expertise in his field, plus his current preoccupation with other books-in-progress, would not seem to leave time for a well-rounded existence, Starchild has won two Presidential Sports Awards and written several cookbooks, and is currently involved in a number of personal charitable projects.

This book is written in a generic style so that it can be turned into: how to start your own ..... home business. Fill in the blank. It has no content of value.
A complete waste of time for anyone seriously wanting to start their own travel business. If you need to know that a you can use "different folder sizes to store different documents" then this book may be of use.

Lots of empty space (literally and figuratively) 21 Jun. 2006
By Steven F. Koenig - Published on
Verified Purchase
Basically a worthless book. Perhaps one chapter-worth of information padded with lots of blank space (I mean LOTS) and simplistic truisms repeated again and again. Some sections (e.g., how to organize your home office) contained just simple generalizations not reflecting any knowledge of the tourism business. I bought the book online so didn't realize what a rip-off it was. If it took this author more than a day to write the book (beyond putting in the wide margins, extra spacing, etc.), there's something wrong. One decent magazine article would have more useful information than this book. There have got to be better books on the topic. Maybe it was a magazine article put into book form. Save your money.
