Product Description: Easy to read and conducive to discussion, Fundamentals of Leisure Business Success: A Manager's Guide to Achieving Success in the Leisure and Recreation Industry takes a practical, upbeat look at the world's largest industry--leisure and recreation--and gives you practical tips and surefire strategies for making your own profit or nonprofit leisure business a blue ribbon success. Its condensed format, interesting case studies, and helpful examples will show you how you can transform any sluggish, out-of-shape recreation business into an efficient, iron-willed, profit-producing marathoner!

In Fundamentals of Leisure Business Success, you'll sidestep the theoretical, overly academic jargon that often bogs down books dealing with leisure and recreation and discover many revolutionary, practical ways that these theories translate into the everyday realities of market share, employee management, and all-out business survival. You'll have the benefit of 20 years of actual experience in the leisure and recreation field at your disposal so you can master the importance of contemporary business and management techniques. Specifically, your capacity to steer your leisure business will grow from:
  • an introduction to the current size and scope of the leisure/recreation industry
  • a quick tutorial on why business concepts are so important in leisure/recreation
  • inspiring and educational case studies and actual examples
  • survival tips on how to make worthwhile changes in your organization
  • sources of additional leisure business information

    It might be true, as the old adage says, that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But in our day and age, as Fundamentals of Leisure Business Success shows you, we live in a world where play is (ital) work--which can mean profit for you. Academics in recreation education and students and professionals in this expanding industry can break free from the pack and let the priceless, practical guidelines you'll find in this volume help you discover how you can make play work for you.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
