And Then I Met Margaret, by Rob White. This is an inspirational book that tells us about the author's life occurrence that turn him into the man he is today.
With twenty one chapters, the author's goal is to use real-life examples of mistakes to teach people how to improve their lives. In this book, the author shares personal stories of his own failures and accomplishments. Each new chapter is another time-earned life lesson that has taught him something and discusses how to overcome any diversity blocking your path. The author wants people to learn from his mistakes.
Beginning with the tales of his childhood, growing up in a small town, the traditions of small towns, and becoming an adult. He shares that when he was in high school, it was assumed that he would follow in his father's steps and work at a factory. I thought this was the most pivotal point in the story and that it strengthens the relationship between author and reader. It shows the author's humble origins, a contrast to the person he is today. The author also displays real emotions when he explains how that affected him. He does not gloss over the difficult parts. This example and others show that the author truly cares and wants to help the people who inspired him. The author can also admit his mistakes, and that is a strong trait.
The author writes about his transition to becoming a business owner and the negative and positive parts of this journey in his life. What I have learnt the most from this book is to view life from the lens of endless transformational opportunities; to reinvent your life and there is no age limit to change.
This book is for anyone who is looking to improve their life or has questions about why life has turned out as it has. This book is also for anyone graduating from high school or college. It reminds us that we can all make mistakes, no matter what stage we are at in life. The important thing the book shows us is how to learn from our mistakes and move on with our lives. Each chapter starts out with the myth the author believed, and each ends with the myth he believed and the reality he discovered. I think this was a good way to organize the chapters because it was like a chapter review at the end. This is the sort of thing a teacher would do. I also think that everyone should read it. When you have a good teacher, embrace it. This author has a wealth of knowledge to share.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because it is an inspirational book that assures a very bright future. It encourages to seek excellence and do the best you can do.
