New book: Introduction to Service Engineering

College graduates need to gain new skills to thrive in a service business environment. Compiled by an editorial board of specialists in the various areas and edited by a best-selling author, Introduction to Service Engineering is the ideal textbook as well as reference for professionals interested in service engineering. The book provides examples, problems, real world case studies, and a solutions manual. As the first book to globally bring together experts on all aspects of service engineering, this resource serves as a much-needed guide to both the processes and the management of service. The new book, edited by Gavriel Salvendy and Waldemar Karwowski, is to be published in January 2010 by John Wiley & Sons.
