Have you ever met someone who transformed your life? Have you ever met someone who taught you a spiritual truth just by their actions? Have you ever believed something to be a truth only to find out it wasn't an indisputable truth? Do you need inspiration? Are you feeling stuck?

And Then I Met Margaret: Stories of Personal Transformation by Rob White is a beautiful book that shows us how the author met such people and answered these questions. This book is filled with 21 stories of people the author has encountered that taught him valuable spiritual lessons. He shares these stories and lessons with us in this book.

Each chapter begins with a "myth" such as, "Magic happens randomly to me". It then goes on to tell a story from the author's life that dispels that myth and reveals the true "reality". My favorite part of each chapter is where the author lists the "myth" again as well as the "reality" the he learned. One of my favorite things the author learned is, "Be true to thyself - it's always right and beautiful".

This is a beautifully written book. I read it in one sitting. It is inspirational and filled with wisdom. If you need a lift this book is for you. I believe that books find you when you need them. I definitely need to read this book. I needed to be reminded of the many truths this book presents. This book guides us to follow our inner wisdom and be the best we can, our authentic selves.

This book was edited well and I did not find any errors. I would rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because I found it to be filled with gems of wisdom and enjoyed the stories the author presented. Through stories from his life we are given wisdom to incorporate into our own lives.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Living our best life is possible. Everyone can teach us something. These are just a few of the lessons I took from this book. It is filled with many more lessons. If you feel discouraged or want to transform your life then And Then I Met Margaret is a book you should pick up. You can read a story a day for inspiration or read it straight through. I think everyone will be able to take away something from this book. This is a book I will be going back to again and again.

An amazing analysis about an amazing book. After reading this review, I really gave a thought of reading this book. Infact I’m going to get this book soon! I’m fond of motivational and inspirational books that leave a greater impact on ones life. This book reminds me of another life changing book that I went through during my university time, named “Think like a winner” by Walter Staples. It helped me boost my confidence and became reason for my excellent performance in academics. No matter what, “And then I met Margaret” is going to be my next read!

When I read the book I saw that it was a very well written book, but may appeal to a narrow audience. It's nice to see that your review shows that even with a narrow audience the book can have a large impact. Your details are great and very useful deciding factors for potential readers.
