In his fifties, Michael Gates Gill had it all: a big house, a loving family, and a six-figure salary. By sixty, he had lost everything: downsized at work, divorced at home, and diagnosed with a slow-growing brain tumor, Gill had no money, no insurance, and no prospects. He took a job at Starbucks, and for the first time in his life, he was a minority--the only older white guy working with a team of young African-Americans. He was forced to acknowledge his prejudices and admit that his new job was hard. And his younger coworkers, despite half the education and twice the personal difficulties, were running circles around him. Crossing over the Starbucks bar was the beginning of a transformation that cracked his world wide open. When all of his defenses and the armor of entitlement had been stripped away, a humbler, happier and gentler man remained.--From publisher description.

There's a revolution happening. Across America, employees are becoming entrepreneurs at a breathtaking, historic rate. Some are leaving corporate life because of downsizing, mergers, and forced early retirements; others, because they are fed up with the traditional corporate structure that no longer provides any security. For many the going is good: huge sums of money are being made by entrepreneurs leading companies you never heard of even a year ago. But the most.

"In response to overwhelming requests from readers who wanted to know how they, too, could weather downturns, Michael Gill has distilled his experiences into fifteen meaningful lessons. Some of these include: leap with faith (Gill accepted his Starbucks job immediately on a whim), let yourself be helped (pride is even more paralyzing than fear), look with respect at every individual you see (realize the potential in all who cross your path), and lose your watch (and cell phone and PDA) (our obsession with productivity produces madness, not gladness). True fortune, Gill discovered, lies not in fate, but in discovering the innate capacity we all possess to rescue ourselves"--Container.

Summary: In 1977, during the monsoon season, an Indo-New Zealand expedition under the leadership of Sir Edmund Hillary made an epic 1600-mile journey from the delta of the Ganges to one of the peaks of the Himalayas, from which the river springs. Using three powerful, jet-propelled boats, the party travelled up-stream, stopping briefly at towns and villages along the way and receiving an enthusiastic welcome from the crowds. For the last 200 miles the expedition fought its way past churning rapids and, when finally stopped by an insurmountable barrier, continued the journey on foot. Following the path of thousands of pilgrims, they travelled past the holy shrines at the river's source and, after eight weeks, reached their goal. This film, a visual record of the journey, has the same title as the book by Sir Edmund Hillary.
