Críticas:

"Like their pioneering first edition, the second edition by Smith and Puczkó will become the standard reference text for anyone who is interested in wellness tourism. Large parts of this book are completely rewritten and updated, retracing the significant diversification and growth of this tourism sector. Particularly noteworthy new material includes a more extensive discussion on lifestyle issues contributing to the growth of wellness tourism. There are numerous ‘mini’ and 41 extended case studies, boxes and figures, many written by many well-known industry practitioners and tourism academics and covering a rich array of content. These will facilitate student’s comprehension of the topic in faster and more enjoyable ways." - Cornelia Voight, Adjunct Research Fellow, School of Marketing, Curtin University, Perth, Australia.

'Smith and Puczkó’s first edition, Health and Wellness Tourism, offered us a much-needed look into the rapidly growing field of health and wellness tourism. Their second edition, Health, Tourism and Hospitality: Spas, Wellness and Medical Travel, is more than a facelift. Anyone studying or working in the field of hospitality and tourism should read this book. Besides the wide array of case studies from different countries and contexts, the book also takes a strong management and marketing stand.' - Mário Passos Ascenção, Principal Lecturer, HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences, Helsinki, Finland
