    In 2008, Howard Schultz, the president and chairman of Starbucks, made the unprecedented decision to return as CEO, eight years after he stepped down from daily oversight of the company to become chairman. Concerned that Starbucks had lost its way, Schultz was determined to help it return to its core values and restore not only its financial health, but also its soul.

    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed the history of Starbucks and the business acumen that Howard brings to this company. But the book is written for Wall Street or competitors and as a great business case study on a truly remarkable turnaround, but it's difficult for the average reader to get through. Mr. Schultz is a great marketer, and this book proves it. He is a great CEO, and this book proves it. He is more comfortable with boardroom speak than developing characters, plot, scene, and story . . . and this book proves it.

    Still, as a Seattle entrepreneur with a small business, I learned a lot. I enjoyed it most on a business level.

    Where does Trump Style Negotiation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really appreciate the information here, and have already started seening a benefit in my business. But the writing style is a littly heady, and I backed up a number of times to make sure I understood the points. I wish George would include more of his personal stories to illustrate all of the main points because those were the most powerful and easiest to remember in this audio format. There were some, but I want more. Is that a deal, George?


    Would you be willing to try another book from George H. Ross? Why or why not?

    Yes.
