    " I'm not a big nonfiction reader, but Howard Schultz is a great writer, and he obviously has a great deal of passion for his company. He was able to make business fun and entertaining, and the book is stuffed with information about the company. Anybody who works in business or is studying business should read this book. Very enlightening. "

    " I actually quit reading this about halfway through. The story was interesting, but way too many details, it just kept going on and on with more (in my opinion) mundane details. I was looking for more out of this book, was just to bored to continue with it. From a high level it is an interesting story. "

    " Writing was a bit over-the-top. Didn't feel I gained any real insights into the ceo or the company. Everything was "There was a huge hurdle and the world was depending on us but yes, we did it! I always knew we could!" Decent book, but not great. "

    " As someone who worked (quite intensely) in the machinery of a fast-food coffee retailer, this book is riveting for me. While my brief foray into store management was for Dunkin, not Starbucks, a lot of this hits home. (Particularly since Dunkin's perspective on the coffee business is quite different.) The narrative on leadership is idealistic, but striking. "
