Dive into an opulent universe of punches, cobblers, toddies, slings, sours and a host of other classic old-world cocktails! Legendary bartender Jerry Thomas (1832-1885) whose name was once synonymous with quality in the world of high-end drink, compiled this seminal volume in 1862. In doing so, he codified the concoctions that have become the backbone of high-end bars around the world!

The Sponsorship Guide has been created for sponsors in all 12 step programs. It has been designed as a "working tool" for a sponsor to utilize with their newcomers. It is laid out in a simple, concise, and thorough manner. Its main object is to help a sponsor build a "working relationship" with the newcomer by taking them through the twelve steps of recovery. It's author is a well known member of the recovery community who speaks at conventions, leads men's and women's spiritual retreats, takes rehabilitation clients and sober house clients through the 12 steps and is well respected amongst his peers. Robbie felt as though a "twelve step guide" such as this was dearly needed in the recovery community. So Robbie, while on the road in Hotel Rooms and on flights to and from his speaking engagements, created this remarkable and simple book to help others. Originally he had only planned to utilize it in his retreats, until a "Nun" at one of his retreats TOLD HIM to author a book. He knew he needed to listen to her! Robbie had noticed during his recovery that many members of twelve step fellowships utilized certain tools of recovery, such as: sponsorship, meetings and fellowship. However, many fell drastically short of participating in the actual intense and introspective taking of their twelve steps with an informed sponsor - who has been through the process. That is exactly why he created this book! Robbie realized over the last three decades of his personal recovery journey, the absolute need for the person in recovery to find a program of action - if they were to live a peaceful, contented, and successful life. Group therapy, while extremely helpful to many, does not, in his experience, hold enough depth and weight to sustain a bountiful and long term recovery for the sufferer. Nothing short of continuous action on the twelve steps; with the help of a sponsor, has the ability to sustain a newcomer's attention. Once we 'get their attention' by wal
While economy or budget hotels have been popular in western countries since the end of the Second World War, they have only emerged as a sector in their own right in China since the mid-1990s. Indeed, as a new service industry sector, economy hotels in China demonstrate important characteristics which can be used to illustrate and help explain China's current economic progress more generally.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the economy hotel sector in China. It covers macro-level social-cultural, economic, environmental, geographic and development issues, alongside micro-level consideration of the budget hotel companies' innovative management and marketing procedures, business expansion strategies, general hotel management and operation issues, as well as an analysis of some leading entrepreneurs in the sector, and in-depth case studies examining the most successful economy hotel companies in China. Huang and Sun argue that the rapid development of budget hotels in China demonstrates how, under the influence of globalisation, Chinese businesses have become more innovative as they apply successful western business models to China. In turn, they show that the China model is fundamentally different in terms of its driving force, which lies purely in its domestic travel market, fuelled by China's continued economic growth. There is therefore much to explore about both China's market situation and business practices in the economy hotel sector and this book makes an important contribution to our understanding of China's new business environment.
Based on extensive fieldwork and investigation, Economy Hotels in China will be welcomed by students and scholars of tourism, hospitality, business studies and Chinese studies, but it will also appeal to practitioners of business management in these sectors who are interested in China's development and business opportunities in China.
