In this one, Schulz takes you through the story of his life and Starbucks from the early days, hitting on key moments along the way. Leadership tips are scattered throughout the book, but they come up organically as part of the bigger story. This makes for fun reading that you still learn from. Overall, the book was a great read that, admittedly, nudged me into a few extra eggnog lattes. So at Castle Rock, we are in the process of creating a vision statement, or perhaps creating some stronger branding within the community.
Of course, there are hundreds of books from the religious community on this topic, but instead of reading the same stuff repackaged, I always look to read for other sources to create more creativity within myself.
A leader needs a wide variety of material to think outside of the box, and when you think about Starbucks, whatever you think of the coffee, but you cannot say that the company has not branded itself well. It is highly known in this culture. So wanted to read about this man that accomplished a lot. Howard Schultz grew up poor, and has done a great job leading the company. Even when he stepped away, the company started to fail, but he came back, and the company took off again. The book is really fun to read, and is insightful on the journey of growing the company.
It is a great story, but there is also a lot of practical advice. You have to root your organization in values and principles because if you have to think through every choice, you are killing valuable time. I liked the chapters on growing large, and feeling small.
I liked the people focused dynamics. A lot of the topics translate into the church world well. If you are looking for a light read, this is a good book, and will make you think about your church culture too. I loved reading this book. The author wrote it with what I consider a simple yet effective storytelling rythm that captivates and inspires the reader.
Schultz talks about his childhood as a poor kid from Brooklyn, and how the example of this dad, who couldn't find inspiration in his life, threw him to be entrepreneurial and never to give up. The author writes all the way from the begining, how he knew Starbucks while working at a big company, and how he left his comfortable lifestyle and salary to pursue his dream: a project he could call his own.
Some of the messages this books gives are clear and direct. Some of the ones I remember are: - People connect with Starbucks because of what it stands for, not what it is. Many more quotes can be written, because the books pages are filled with lessons for everyone thinking about starting their own business, or improving their existing one.
For years I was not a big coffee drinker. Somehow I survived college without giving into the caffeinated demon of the dark roast. However, a year after graduate school, I found myself working for a university that had me help manage the on campus coffee shop. Quickly I learned the science and art that is espresso making. Over time I was transformed from a delicate Frappuccino drinker to a serious espresso connoisseur also known as a coffee snob.
Soon I began to critique the subtle nuance of every coffee shop I visited. Most were very consistent with being inconsistent. Also like in the later Schultz book, here Schultz starts off sounding a bit pompous. You could also read it like he wants to ensure he gets credit for many of the good points of Starbucks, and based on this book he surely deserves much credit.
This is a quite interesting explanation of research in retail. His second book describes the buyout of the makers of Clover coffee brewing machines, somewhat along the same lines. Being a bit of a geek myself, I really quite enjoyed these bits. Among the quote i like in the book is "success should not be measured in dollars. It is about how you conduct the journey, and how big your heart is at the end of it".
Aug 14, Mahima rated it liked it. The parts with the story of Howard Schultz trying to make it though makes it worth a read. Apr 01, Shreya Vikram rated it it was ok Shelves: on-my-kindle , non-fiction , has-potential-but-fell-flat , part-of-my-story-is-missing , memoir.
Howard Schultz is confused. He can't decide whether he's writing a memoir, a business manifesto, an ad, or a political campaign. He doesn't know whether he's writing as a Starbucks visionary, an aspiring politician or as Starbucks itself. And he can't figure out whether he's writing for taxpayers, Starbucks enthusiasts or entrepreneurs.
He flickers between genres and pretends it's okay by splitting the book into parts. What he doesn't realize is that by attempting to cater to everyone, he caters Howard Schultz is confused. What he doesn't realize is that by attempting to cater to everyone, he caters to no one at all.
He is unflinchingly un-honest, skims over all the bad days as if afraid of exposing some misdemeanour, and presents a disappointingly polished version of what could have been a good story. He writes not about the journey Starbucks took, but what he wishes Starbucks had taken. The book is a reflection of the detached past, not an account of the raw, emotional present. It is refined, cultivated and selective in what it chooses to show, much like Starbucks itself.
In a company, this is acceptable. But in this book, it was disappointing. The book opens up well enough into a memoir-style backstory of where Howard Schultz came from, his early life, his background. It moves onto Starbucks' backstory about the initial founders, the starting days. And then they clash, and it all comes together. Here, it shifts. It becomes a business manual about why Starbucks was so successful.
As a reader, the shift was hard to make, but once I got into it, I fairly enjoyed this segment, and it contributed to the majority of the three-stars. It had a lot of interesting points to make and I found myself highlighting virtually every other line for later reference. When you read in the moment, it's an enjoyable read, minus the constant eye-rolling to his holier-than-thou approach. But it doesn't stop here. In an attempt to clap back at Starbucks haters, Howard Schultz finally launches into a long-winding whine-fest about how Starbucks is being misunderstood and villainized.
This doesn't work. Schultz gets a little too defensive. We get it: it must be hard to be misunderstood like that, but this segment reads like a dreadfully-written advertising campaign and it gets old, fast. At one point, I looked at the book, and all I could see was the word 'value' popping up at least every two lines for about pages.
I get it: What they really care about is value and what they've always stood for is value and they're a value -oriented company that cares more about value than any of the haters and in the end, it all comes down to valuing value because value is what makes people value the company and providing value will always be the central value of Starbucks.
If Howard wanted to give Starbucks a face by writing this, he failed, miserably. His story is way too polished to be candid. The phantom threat of his politics hovers over every single line: he edges around the story as if afraid of inadvertently exposing some misbehaviour which would have adverse consequences on his political life.
The book is sickly sweet and completely unrelatable. Even worse, it's cheap. Is he truly trying to convince his readers that throughout the entirety of his career, he has never made a single mistake that he is ashamed of? Has his morals and values always been rock-solid?
Was there never a learning curve? I find that hard to believe. I wanted to hear about how Starbucks stumbled and how they got over it. I wanted to hear about the mistakes Howard Schultz made and what he learnt from them. I want to hear about the bad days, the days where they thought Starbucks wouldn't make it, the days where they knew they were going under. It seems as though Starbucks never had any bad days.
It's sickening This stands out in stark contrast to Phil Knight's book on Nike. Phil Knight is overwhelmingly honest. He openly admits to stealing documents from his supplier. His book has a brazen quality to it, a 'take-it-or-leave-it', which might have been repulsive to some, but it was also undeniably admirable.
He didn't pretend that Nike was perfect from the start. He didn't pretend that he was perfect from the start. After reading Knight's book, I feel especially resentful of Starbucks for refusing to let down its guard. It fails to inspire the hope Schultz talks so passionately about in the last page.
And it definitely seems as though all this was is one huge ad for Starbucks and one huge political campaign for Schultz. In the last few pages, Schultz writes: We're all so hungry for a hero, for a story that rings true, that everyone can relate to. We're all eager for something upbeat, something honest, something authentic. Absolutely right. I only wish he understood this himself. Blog Letterboxd Nov 16, Ronit rated it it was ok.
The last quarter just sounded defensive and while the history and story is interesting, I think it would have come across better had Howard waited and let someone else write such a flattering biography of him. Dec 09, Trang Ngo rated it did not like it Shelves: unfinishable. Another blah blah book told by an American about how wonderful he is. Feb 09, Anna rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Starbucks Baristas past and present!
If, like me, you are a former Starbucks employee, you have a soft spot in your heart for Howard and everything that he says and does. He's like our little demi-god, or even our very own evangelical leader in the worship of coffee he certainly rakes the money in like Evangelical Mega-churches - some of which have Starbucks' inside them. However, if you are not, remember that Howard always has rose-colored glasses on that he knows are there and floridly romanticizes everything around him, from If, like me, you are a former Starbucks employee, you have a soft spot in your heart for Howard and everything that he says and does.
However, if you are not, remember that Howard always has rose-colored glasses on that he knows are there and floridly romanticizes everything around him, from his father's hardships to his company's success. But, if you can stand the mushy platitudes and need a pick-me-up feel good read that will make you more than happy to feed your Starbucks habit, this is a great read.
Much of the meteoric rise of Starbucks rested with the few good decisions Schultz made in the beginning, and the consistent, dogged leadership he's given the company since. If you're ready to find out how and why he did it, this is a super book. I loved it. Especially when I got to go to work the next morning and try to live it.
Dec 26, Soheil rated it really liked it. The title says it all. The book is about how Starbucks as it was by the year came to be. The author has a deep passion for what he has done and ferverously goes to length to make the point that everything they did was gold and that they never made a mistake.
As compelling a read it was, I have to conclude that the writing feels a bit biased.

I enjoyed learning how he built a company based on passion, trust and thirst for victory, but can't help but feel tgat the guy is religously proud of what he has done and that might have influenced his views while writing.
As a follow up I would love to read about Starbucks beyond the year and see what happened to them then. Do not let my rant desuade you from reading this book. It is still worth your while. Feb 08, Hiep Nguyen rated it it was amazing.

Compromise anything but your core values. Seek to renew yourself even when you are hitting home runs. And everything matters. The way he illustrates and narrates, really creating an interest for us to proceed further. Happy to see he is so particular on " Values don't wither as sales grow". This book proved "Anything is achievable if we have real passion and plan". Overall, Good book. Aug 29, Raya rated it really liked it. What an inspiration! I had a good timing reading it right before the start of my entrepreneurship program.
So interesting to peek behind the curtain of this "faceless corporation" and to see the devotion and the passion of the people building it. Jan 19, Kevin Luo rated it it was amazing. This book was written by Howard Schultz, who was one of the earliest CEO's of Starbucks and his story as a visionary who transformed Starbucks into a global phenomenon. He writes extremely passionately and you can just feel the energy emanating throughout the book and everyone loves a great underdog story, which is exactly this case.
He came from a poor family in New York, eventually was exposed to the coffee experience in Europe, and sought to create a company that brought that vision to Americ This book was written by Howard Schultz, who was one of the earliest CEO's of Starbucks and his story as a visionary who transformed Starbucks into a global phenomenon.
He came from a poor family in New York, eventually was exposed to the coffee experience in Europe, and sought to create a company that brought that vision to America. He spoke about many of the challenges, the ups and downs, and the work that it took into bringing the company up from the ground. It really is a heroic tale and many of the aspects of Starbucks that we take for granted such as the corporate responsibility, the design of the store, and so on which we take for granted have all been painstakingly cultivated and documented in this book.
I will acknowledge that much of the book really began to take off and once Starbucks became a household name, the story was not as intriguing since it was much harder to relate to, but I think that is the case in any story such as this where the underdog becomes the leader. I would say the most resounding aspect of Starbucks is its commitment to values of bringing not just a product to the community, but an experience with integrity and excellence. Aug 27, Owen Little rated it really liked it.
Really good and insightful book. Instead of inspiring me and firing me up to start my own company, Schultz's account of how Starbucks came to me made me realize I do not have what it takes to create a multi-national brand. He is brilliant and driven, and wouldn't ever take no for an answer. His vision of what Sbux aimed to be is completely different than what he originally planned, so it was interesting to see him work through the dissonance in the book.
At times he seemed like he was validating Really good and insightful book. At times he seemed like he was validating to himself what Starbucks has become. This is because his original idea, an authentic Italian bar, is not possible on a large scale. Expansion forced him outside of his original plans and ideas, and he was faced with inner conflict. Was cool to see his values and outlook grow throughout the book. Jun 16, Sophie Yang added it.
Jan 16, Selflovemine rated it it was amazing. This book resonates with my personal beliefs and professional choices in so many ways. It was an overwhelmed feeling to be able to relate so well with a successful entrepreneur, on how he built an empire without compromising his standards and beliefs where they count.
Howard's passion for coffee is unwavering and cannot be matched by any other. So often we assume CEOs as overly-paid, lazy, and deceitful but I can honestly say that my views of Howard are only positive. He loves his company, loves This book resonates with my personal beliefs and professional choices in so many ways.
He loves his company, loves coffee, and loves providing the public with coffee that he takes great pride in. Mar 23, Ole Ingemann rated it did not like it. The more you read, the more you lose touch with Mr. I am left with an image of a whining, upper class, preppy alpha male, that has never experienced any type of headwind at all. Is that bad? Not at all, but it does not make a great story or an exciting book. He talks a lot about values, but at the same time loses his trustworthiness as his mantra is clearly "grow the company and crush all competitors" no matter what.

Pride and success. Respect for our partners. Enjoy your Starbucks experience.. I want a copy of The Green Apron Book and am not able to find a copy anywhere. Do you have any suggestions? While I have never worked at starbucks, I believe the black aprons are used to designate partners which have elected for more advanced education in coffee — growing, brewing, tasting, etc.
If I recall correctly, the black aprons bear a small embroidered emblem indicating this. Yes andrew. More accurate, they are called Coffee Master. My relatives all the time say that I am killing my time here at web, but I know I am getting familiarity every day by reading such good content.
