     There are great books that change the way you feel about a topic and give you great insights into a topic in which you have an interest. This is not one of them. On the other hand, the book should be of interest and value to those interested in how tourism in Poland is progressing and want to see a recent sampling of the scholarship from Poles in the field of tourism. While most of the twenty-five articles are written in English, eight articles are written in Cyrillic script, presumably Russian. For those of us who do not read Cyrillic, the eight articles are impenetrable and this is a major strike against the book. Another drawback is that many of the articles are a bit hard to read because of awkward English or grammatical errors.
