Insight into Starbucks's rise to worldwide recognition is given in this tale of marketing success.

Full of interesting facts about the coffee giant, the book includes a rare interview with CEO Howard Schultz.

Each title in this series features an in-depth, biographical look at one of today's top brands, such as Guinness, Adidas, and Starbucks.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1995, I went on a coast-to-coast trip across the US. When we got to San Francisco, the sun was shining and the people were relaxed. We wandered into a Starbucks, the first I'd ever been in.

We sat enjoying our coffees and the buzz of conversation around us. There's a willingness to share your life with the world that seems particularly characteristic of California. The overheard conversation ran like this:

"I like this place. I come here when I'm stressed out."

"The people seem OK. Not the usual geeks."

"Hey man, my sister's a barista."

Welcome to Starbucks.
