Starbux Diary: My 10-year Journey to Caffeinated Enlightenment, ...began in 2005 at a Starbucks store when Ferrera noticed the customer feedback cards read, We'd love to hear your thoughts... Taking their invitation literally, each day since she has jotted down her ideas about life, love and art on a card and mailed the original to Starbucks Customer Relations. Sometimes, Starbucks writes back. February 14th, 2015 marks - to the day - the 10th anniversary of Ferrera's uniquely humorous take on endurance art.

A selection of diary entries, drawings and actuarial tables, this book commemorates the 10th anniversary of Ferrera's uniquely humorous take on endurance art.
