When you’re born, you have no expectations. But if you were capable of having expectations, it would be reasonable to assume you would be held by your mother for more than eleven seconds; that after your cord was cut, you’d be wrapped in a blanket and then placed in the arms of your father; that you would see the woman who gave birth to you again sometime after you left that room. Melissa Lynn Gilpatrick gets none of these things. Instead, she’s born into a world full of midwestern religious values, a world of pornstars, a world of particle physicists and Broadway playwrights, a world of terrorism and technology and natural disasters. In PARTICLES, Shawn Mihalik, author of Brand-Changing Day and The Flute Player, pulls us gently from our own reality before thrusting us violently into a deep, uncomfortable, and often hilarious exploration of the loneliness of existence and the connections we make as human beings in the first decades of the 21st Century.

Just like the character in Moby Dick who gives the company its name, Starbucks has spread to every part of the world, making it one of today's most recognizable brands. In this thoughtful and elegantly written book, John Simmons explores the Starbucks story, providing fascinating insight into the factors that have made Starbucks a world-class brand. Like McDonald's and Coca-Cola, Starbucks has recently suffered at the hands of anti-globalization protesters. That alone is an indication of the reach and size of Starbucks today. Go to Beijing or Moscow, and you will find Starbucks, just like you would find McDonald's. What people there are buying is not just a latte or a Big Mac, but a brief excursion into America and the luxury that is seen to be American. But with the Starbucks story, there is also a deeper level that links with the sense that this brand - through its shops - creates gathering places for local communities. As a result, Starbucks is the quintessential brand of the modern age.
