Publisher's Summary

Be My Guest is the remarkable autobiography of legendary entrepreneur, statesman, and philanthropist Conrad Hilton. 

Born on Christmas day in 1887 in the Territory of New Mexico, by 1929 Hilton owned hotels throughout Texas. Although the Depression erased nearly all of it, he never resorted to bankruptcy. Rising through turbulence and achieving prosperity, the “innkeeper to the world” brought the world closer together in glamorous destinations across the globe. 

Conrad Hilton believed in himself, in his dreams and in America as the land of opportunity. In his own words, he reveals how mastering the art of living can also help listeners achieve their own personal success.

Quick read on a excellent story

A nice fast read that gives you a little detail on how Conrad Hilton built the Hilton Brand. It left me wanting more details but this was a good start at looking at the Hilton Brand. I was not pleased with the recording quality though and if it was longer that the 3 hours I probably would have stopped listen because of the quality of the recording.

Addictive!

I just couldn't stop listening to it, from the beginning to the end. An interesting account of Conrad Hilton's rise. The narrator was just outstanding. Short, but great.

Lacking A Lot of Details

And so invested a million dollars. Well, that's what the whole book sounds like after a while. Sure there's some struggle, but it's really vague. It really doesn't get into how he made Hilton Hotels into the template for the modern hospitality business. Don't waste your time.

Great book.

I loved this book. it reminded me how important making connections were and how not to forget to utilize all areas in one's location.we need to focus on what works and let go or adjust what doesn't. but must of all what I took from this book is dream big, chase your dreams till you reach them.
