"My friend and Marriott Board colleague, George Munoz, and his co-authors, have put forth principles in this book about Enterprise USA that will re-energize the American Dream for the 21st Century. When my father founded Marriott International during the Great Depression, he lived the American Dream and seized the opportunity given to him by this great country. We all have the responsibility to keep that dream alive."
—J.W. “Bill” Marriott, Jr.
