How Starbucks Saved My Life: A Son of Privelege Learns to Live Like Everyone Else by Michael Gates Gill

A fun, inspirational read - and I don't even drink coffee. Michael Gates Gill had spent his life in the upper eschelons of New York Society. When it all came crashing down, he stumbled into a job at Starbucks. Besides giving him enough money to live on, insurance, and new relationships, his new job also taught him humility, contentment, and respect for others and himself. While Gates' story is clearly complimentary of his employer, it is also a testament to the power of kindness and dignity of the "partners" who make Starbucks what it is.
