And Then I Met Margaret by Rob White, is a very interesting, non-fiction book. The author hailed from a poor town with a model reality for scrambling for money. He made good choices and became a big-city schoolteacher. He became rich and successful, in spite of this, he felt something lacking, he was spiritually bankrupt.

He set out to find gurus who would share their wisdom and help him feel rich on the inside too. This quest took him around the world. In And Then I Met Margaret, Rob White tells us stories of these ordinary gurus and the impact they had on his life. How they changed his way of thinking, how they motivated him, and how they helped him make great decisions in life.

In every chapter, the author begins with a myth he believed and how he encountered a guru who transformed his belief, and he ends with the new truth he has learned. This truth has helped shape his life for the better.

He talks of his aunt Theresa who underwent shunning in their home-town. She would go out of her way to make him happy. He learned a great lesson in the grocery store incident where he stole a candy from a jar and felt ashamed and embarrassed. A stranger paid for it without rattling him to the owner. He was saved from becoming a thief. The most influential and youngest guru was Margaret. She helped the author see the distorted view of reality. She impacted him positively and it has been an ongoing process and thus named the book after her.

The book is riddled with positivity, it is well paced, full of inspiration. It challenges the way you view life and the decisions you make. The author tells his stories with humor and flare. He captivates and holds your attention. He teaches people to avoid the mistakes he made by sharing his real-life experiences and the lessons he learned. This helped him grow from a shy, embarrassed boy to a confident adult. He even tries different activities like car racing.

I recommend this book to all people from all walks of life. It will make you confident, help you make great and wise decisions in life and also become a great influence on someone else’s life. If you feel like you’re in the dumps, discouraged, ready to quit or give up, then this book will change your perspective on life.

I enjoyed And Then I Met Margaret and really loved it. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It was professionally edited, had good grammar and every story was well delivered.

I liked reading your review. You have captured the strengths of this book very well. I didn't like the book quite as much as you did, but appreciated many aspects of it. Thanks for the great review.

Great review. I did not like the book but I know many did. Aunt Theresa was an interesting woman though.
