"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"
