How Starbucks Saved My Life

My Book Review of How Starbucks Saved My Life  by Michael Gates Gill

I'm glad Gill wrote about his humbling, freeing journey from being served to serving. His journey is one most people can learn from. I appreciated Gill's honesty about his motives and mistakes. This book also illuminates two opposite corporate cultures: that of J. Walter Thompson and that of Starbucks. That is interesting as well. Some passages seemed repetitive, and some stories of Gill's former corporate life seemed like vehicles to mention famous people he used to know. Still, this memoir has merit.
