2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
How Starbucks saved my life : a son of privilege learns to live like everyone else by Michael Gill( Book )

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

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

Now in paperback, the national bestselling riches-to-rags true story of an advertising executive who had it all, then lost it all'and was finally redeemed by his new job, and his twenty-eight-year-old boss, at Starbucks. In his fifties, Michael Gates Gill had it all: a mansion in the suburbs, a wife and loving children, a six-figure salary, and an Ivy League education. But in a few short years, he lost his job, got divorced, and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. With no money or health insurance, he was forced to get a job at Starbucks. Having gone from power lunches to scrubbing toilets, from being served to serving, Michael was a true fish out of water. But fate brings an unexpected teacher into his life who opens his eyes to what living well really looks like. The two seem to have nothing in common: She is a young African American, the daughter of a drug addict; he is used to being the boss but reports to her now. For the first time in his life he experiences being a member of a minority trying hard to survive in a challenging new job. He learns the value of hard work and humility, as well as what it truly means to respect another person. Behind the scenes at one of America's most intriguing businesses, an inspiring friendship is born, a family begins to heal, and, thanks to his unlikely mentor, Michael Gill at last experiences a sense of self-worth and happiness he has never known before.
