  1.  Awesome read 27 March, 2014 On
    The author walks through his journey from riches to rags and how a place of young people committed to customer service turned his life around. The book is written in simple language and seems like a journey you are taking with the author as his life progressed. It is not dramatic nor is a self help book. It is just a simple statement of his experiences and how working at Startbucks affected his outlook and attitude in a positive manner. Starbucks gave him hope of a new day while he was down in the dumps.
    A nice read , to be enjoyed while sipping a cuppa.
