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

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Jak Starbucks ocalił mi życie : inspirująca, prawdziwa historia człowieka, który stracił wszystko i na nowo odnalazł się w Starbucksie by Michael Gill( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Polish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Gates Gill miał duży dom, kochającą rodzinę i kierownicze stanowisko. Nagle całe jego życie wywróciło się do góry nogami. Najpierw stracił pracę. Następnie romans przekreślił 24 lata małżeństwa. A na koniec wykryto u niego guza mózgu. Urodził mu się nieślubny syn. Gill znalazł się w sytuacji bez pieniędzy i bez perspektyw. Będąc w kawiarni Starbucks na Manhattanie i pijąc kawę latte -- ostatni luksus, jaki pozostał mu w życiu -- Gill trapił się swoim nieszczęściem, nie widząc żadnego sensownego wyjścia z dołka. I wtedy spotkał dwudziestoośmioletnią kierowniczkę kawiarni Starbucks, Crystal Thompson, która pół żartem, pół serio zaproponowała mu pracę. Ponieważ nie miał nic do stracenia, przyjął propozycję i w ten sposób - zamieniając drogi garnitur na firmowy zielony fartuch - przeszedł od picia kawy do jej serwowania. Tłem dla historii Gilla jest pweien uniwersalny fenomen kulturowy: Starbucks. Dzięki tej książce poznajemy od kuchni jedną z najlepiej rozpoznawalnych firm na świecie i dowiadujemy się, jak ona naprawdę działa, kim są pracujący tam ludzie i co uwielbiają (oraz czego nienawidzą) w swojej pracy. W miarę jak zacieśnia się przyjaźń między Crystal i Gillem, widzimy, ile dobrego może się przydarzyć, jeśli wyjdziemy poza ramy klasowe i wiekowe po to, żeby po prostu pomó drugiemu człowiekowi"--Jacket
How to save your own life : [15 lessons on finding hope in unexpected places] by Michael Gill( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of the New York Times best-seller How Starbucks Saved My Life perks up America with inspiring lessons on finding true happiness at any age and any stage of life. 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
