CÓMO STARBUCKS ME SALVÓ LA VIDA

Historia de un hombre que lo tuvo todo y aprendió a vivir sin nada

La historia de un hombre rico que, en la madurez de su vida, perdió cuanto poseía para reencontrarlo a través de la sencillez y la austeridad es un relato mágico e inspirador que ha cautivado a las editoriales de todo el mundo y cuyos derechos ya han sido vendidos al cine.

Michael Gates Gill lo tenía todo en la vida: una hermosa casa, una familia que lo amaba, un magnífico empleo en una multinacional de publicidad? En poco tiempo, fue despedido de su trabajo, su mujer lo abandonó a causa de una aventura sin importancia y le diagnosticaron un tumor cerebral. Desesperado, a punto de caer en la ruina, aceptó un empleo como camarero en un local de Starbucks. Y allí, entre espressos, caffé latte y capuccinos descubrió lo que de verdad importa en la vida: la aceptación de uno mismo, la amistad, la felicidad verdadera y el sentido de la propia existencia. Una obra conmovedora, inspiradora, difícil de olvidar, cuya prosa amena y aparentemente sencilla atrapa al lector sin remedio a la vez que le transmite una profunda sabiduría.

Michael Gates Gill

Michael Gates Gill, hijo del conocido escritor Brendan Gill, trabajó como director creativo en la agencia de publicidad J. Walter Thompson durante veinticinco años. Actualmente vive en Nueva York y sigue empleado en el mismo local de Starbucks; el mejor trabajo, según sus propias palabras, que ha tenido jamás.
