The book has help me as a university student studying International Tourism Management, I am in my first year. Cooper's Essentials covers a wide range of tourism information that is relevant to my course. What I found most useful is up-to-date annotated further reading in the end of each chapter, as a student further reading is essential. There are a lot of useful and interesting case studies in the book. All case studies are international and they help understand current situation from a international bases. High-quality pictures keeps it interesting to read.
Each chapter begins with introduction and learning outcomes and finishes with great summary of the chapter and discussion questions which can help students test their knowledge. There are tables and diagrams on almost every page are meant in order to understand book better. Overall, it is good introduction to tourism for beginners. However some tables are put in the middle of the page, sometimes distracting from reading the text.
