How Starbucks Saved My Life



How Starbucks Saved My Life, Michael Gates Gill

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

This one is a bit of a feelgood tale, the story of a high-flying advertising executive born into the Manhattan upper class who is laid off at the peak of his career.  After attempting to run his own advertising consulting business, and not having much luck, he take s a job as a barrister at an uptown Starbucks store.  Shunned by acquaintances and colleagues from his past life, going through an affair and divorcing his wife, you’d think he’d be at his life’s  absolute low.  But the friendships he develops with his new workmates and the relationships he builds with his Starbucks clientele allow him to discover a new-found love of life and see traits in people that he would have never noticed as a pompous executive.  A quick read, he writes well, enjoyed this one…
