Heads in Beds: A reckless memoir of hotels, hustles, and so-called hospitality
By Jacob Tomsky
I picked up this book all because of the title. I could not resist a look behind the scenes of the hotel industry. Jacob Tomsky has worked in the hotel industry for most of his life and this book is a funny and intriguing account of his experiences. There were times when I laughed and times when I cringed. I felt like I was not supposed to be reading some of his stories as if there should be some sort of code of silence for that industry; at the same time I could not stop reading. There are insider tips for the outsider and there is even some Hollywood intrigue. All of this in a well written account of the hotel industry.
