Review

"A great lesson in finding your highest self in the unlikeliest of places-- proof positive that there is no way to happiness-- rather, happiness is the way."
Wayne Dyer, author of "Inspiration: Your Ultimate Calling"
"I like my Starbucks, but I loved this book. It hit me emotionally and intellectually, right in the gut. The message, what the world needs to embrace most, made my cup runneth over!
Dr. Denis Waitley, author of "The Seeds of Greatness"
""How Starbucks Saved My Life" is based on the simple idea that down-to-earth, humbling labor can help you re-orient your values and priorities and give you new life. It will speak to anyone in need of radical surgery on their worldview, and that includes most of us. Sit down with a cup of coffee and this book and entertain yourself toward enlightenment."
Thomas Moore, author of "Care of the Soul, Dark Nights of the Soul," and "The Worth of Our Work"

From the Inside Flap

Michael Gates Gill was born with all the material advantages that America can offer, with an acclaimed New Yorker staff writer for a father, and spent his childhood surrounded by famous intellectuals and socially connected people.

After graduating from Yale he was given a job with the help of a classmate as a Creative Director at J. Walter Thompson, the most successful and largest advertising agency in the world. Then after 25 years of devoting his life to work, he was suddenly fired and his life at the top of the American establishment became derailed.

He found himself broke, his marriage dissolving, learned he needed a brain operation, and was deperately looking for work to help support his five children.

Then he found a job at Starbucks where he still works as a barista. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
