About the author (1969)

Stanley C. Plog." The career of Stanley C. Plog spans the worlds of academia, professional consulting, and business development. He founded Plog Research, Inc. and was its Chairman and CEO. The company serves a broad segment of the travel industry throughout the world, including airlines, hotel chains, destinations, cruise lines, rental car companies, and travel media. At UCLA, he was first the academic director of the Training Program in Social Psychiatry and formed the Urban Observatory, a social problems study center.

The popular press has labeled him "Dr. Destination" for his ability to turn around destinations and resort areas that face declining revenues. His accomplishments include helping rejuvenate troubled airlines, cruise lines, hotel groups, and other travel-related companies. He frequently speaks at major travel conferences worldwide, and is a regular contributor to "ASTA Agency Management, Travel Weekly," and other trade publications. Dr. Plog is also an editor for the "Journal of Travel Research" and the "Cornell Hotel and Restaurant Administration Quarterly." He has written two other books on travel ("Leisure Travel: Making it a Growth Market ...Again!," and "Vacation Places Rated"). Currently, he operates as an independent consultant, continues to assist his previous company (now owned by NFO Worldwide), services an online research company (Equation Research), and provides guidance to destinations and travel suppliers.
