Reviews

"Simon's book is a fascinating, sometimes dispiriting look at how Starbucks is emblematic of some deeper socioeconomic phenomena at work in this country over the past decade and a half."--Mike Miliard"Boston Phoenix" (12/09/2009)
"Those who frequent Starbucks will enjoy Simon's range of topics, from business matters to the music played to the (very American) concept of 'self-gifting.'"--Publishers Weekly (12/07/2009)
"A thoughtful, in-depth study."--World Wide Work (04/25/2010)
