From the Publisher
“From the Ground Up will resonate with anyone who knows what it’s like to overcome adversity. Howard Schultz’s dream to make the world more fair and welcoming for everyone is truly a breath of fresh air.”—Serena Williams
“Howard Schultz has written a compelling and moving story about how his childhood hardships influenced his creation of Starbucks and inspired him to create a company with a social conscience. Schultz offers powerful lessons about how companies can help address social problems and how we as a society can come together to ensure that every American has the opportunities open to a poor boy from Canarsie—to see the world ‘not as it was, but as it could be.’”—Secretary Robert Gates
“It’s rare for powerful Fortune 500 CEOs and entrepreneurs to open up and share their vulnerabilities and personal challenges. In From the Ground Up, Howard Schultz does just that. More important, he documents how these have motivated him to take on monumental challenges that set the example that capitalism can be a platform for not just accomplishment but also compassion. From the Ground Up is a great read that will inspire all of us to try harder to help those who need it.”—Mark Cuban
“In From the Ground Up, Howard Schultz shares a uniquely American journey that begins in the public housing projects of Brooklyn and leads to the boardroom of one of the world’s most admired companies. More than a memoir or compilation of business lessons, it’s a compelling story about how character and values can spur positive change in people’s lives.”—Admiral William H. McRaven

When I was in the school with no money, living in a tiny room, where the house living room was full of people, I always took my cousin laptop and I run away escaping from those noise people to the nearest Starbucks store in my city. There, I can put my headphones on and forget about the word, making my homework quietly.
After reading a few pages it makes sense how I felt back in the days at my favorite cafeteria (Starbucks) no-one bother me, it was just my self and I. I don’t understand why people puts to much hate on a book that probably haven’t reads yet.
As a dreamer, I can see a successful man starting from the button and I can’t wait to take notes from this great book. You have to be humble enough to share these memories, this man doesn’t need to tell the world about his life experiences or successful company secrets.
All I can tell to Howard S. Is thank you for sharing your life through this pages. I don’t really care if you run for president, so far, all I care is what I can take from the book I have on my hands.
Highly recommended. Five stars ⭐️ +
After reading the first 50 pages my thought was that this book is not edited. I didn't know about the presidency thing and his awful opinion on not introducing further taxes on the wealthy. The first pages of book is full of hyperboles, boring unnnecesssary statements, vague opinions, run on sentences, I was confused.
I am, however, a big fan of his initial memoir, "Pour Your Heart Into It". Things seemed much more sincere there and the tone is much more fresh and relatable. I wish this book took that flag and carried into deeper into sincerity and honesty. Instead it seems like one big pep talk.
"From The Ground Up: A Journey to Reimagine the Promise of America" combines the story of his life from childhood on, a revolutionary business model that grew and expanded as Starbucks became a household name across the globe, and the value Schultz placed on his employees (aka partners), their dreams/goals and the communities they serve. The author's passion for creating opportunities is clear throughout all 335 pages. I was struck by his transparency and--especially--his willingness to own mistakes made along the way. A trait that's increasingly rare. There were areas that seemed to "bunny trail", yet I found the bulk of the book compelling. Thought-provoking. I don't agree with everything Schultz believes. I don't have to. It's a worthwhile read on it's own merits.
