Rob White. And Then I Met Margaret
Mind adventure press: Boston, MA
And Then I Met Margret is a nonfiction inspirational, educating yet entertaining series of stories about the author Rob White and the different people he has encountered in his life that have impacted his personal transformation that he calls gurus. He begins his stories by introducing us to professional gurus and motivational speakers like Stephen Corey, author of 7 Habits books and the wisdom they shared with him and then the likes of Margret, Debbie the "unexpected gurus" that offered him opportunities to understand himself and life. He goes in detail to show us how through his life from childhood this unexpected gurus have surfaced in his life to give him a different outlook on life and deeper understanding of himself.
Each of the 21 chapters introduces you to different myths, the author's encounter with one of the unexpected gurus in a short yet rich detailed story that ends with a lesson but also a better alternative to the myths and as you read through from chapter to chapter, it’s a smooth continuation into the authors life even if the rest of the characters keep on changing and you find it easy to relate to him and also view your own life encounters, experiences and challenges in a new perspective.
I love the authors style in writing this book, he gave it a good tone and pace that captivates you and at the end of each chapter you want to know what happened next, the new guru, the new adventure undertaken by the author and when will you get to meet Margaret and know what great role she plays. When you get to meet Margret down through the chapters, you become impressed and get to appreciate the simple, young, innocent encounter that leaves a profound transformation on the author and why she is the cherry on top of all his encounters with the unexpected gurus.
I like how each chapter is written, with a proper beginning, good ending and although each chapter is a unique story together they form a chain of series that are easy to follow. In each story it’s easy to envision the author, the characters and the setting he is trying to portray to his audience hence bringing them to life and also you get to personally know him, the people closest to him like his family.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars, I enjoyed reading this book, it had good organization which helped me to easily relate to each individual story and I also believe that at least one if not all the stories in this book are relatable to all categories of people hence I recommend it for everyone especially those seeking some good inspiration.
