Book: How to Save Your Own Life: 15 Lessons on Finding Hope in Unexpected Places by Michael Gates Gill
About: Gates provides 15 lessons he's learned after he was fired from his corporate job and started working as a barista at Starbucks.
Pros: Short, quick read, meant to warm your heart a bit, which it does.
Cons: Nothing new here, just the same old self-help pablum "advice" such as remember to laugh, have faith, listen and learn from others and be respectful. We are treated to such giant thoughts as "emotion has the word motion in it"
