There is so much more in this book than the hotel which was almost a side note. What struck me about this book was how little we know about the conditions in any given situation. The reasons. The errors in judegment we can make when we only see part of the story. This is an important book. I know that is just my opinion, but I think it was my best choice in books when doing my year in the life challenge. I think I'll be redoing my challenge for this year again, with maybe a caveat to keep the booklist a little shorter.
