I haven't lived that long myself but I hope to understand the life lessons he is discussing when I read the book soon.

Good evening! I was just reading your book when I got the email notification about this letter. I am truly enjoying your stories! Although I’m not finished with it yet, so far it’s been jam-packed with truths and inspiration. It offers a new way to see the world (a few of them, actually), and personally, I think new perspectives are super important to living a full and enriched life. I also particularly enjoy the connections you make. You relate one part of your life to another part in a way that makes it all seem purposeful. I imagine it took a great deal of reflection to be able to do that, and I am thankful for that reflection!!

Congratulations, Rob White,
I have read only the ten percent sample so far but will read the entire book soon. My primary guru was Mum, also called Margaret, and I too have an Uncle Fred, another storyteller. I have dedicated one of my books to him because of the lessons he has taught me over the years, most specifically to be aware of the beautiful diversity of human nature and to look for the humour in many incidents.

Thank you for your continued inspiration. I'm currently in the middle of your book and I can't wait to continue to see how your gurus altered your way of thinking. Your stories have already opened my eyes to the many people I have met along the way in my life that may have taught me in more ways than one.

Thank you for the inspiring book you have written, Rob White. I am currently in the middle of reading your book- close to the end mostly- and I have to say that it has been a wonderful pleasure so far; of reading about your adventures; the new people you've met along the way who have adviced you; the new lessons learned throughout your journey; and the fact that you used the gurus' pieces of advice to incorporate all these factors into your life. Keep up the great work.

Wow! Wonderful words of insight, thank you.
Your letter has made me take stock of some gurus that have entered my life for a period of time and those that remain, who have taught me much needed lessons.
I’m looking forward to reading your book.
Again, thank you!

This in intriguing, how I wish that every one would view life this way; that every point in time in life people are sent to you for one reason or the other, no man can walk through surface earth with a man. Thank you so very much, I believe stumbling on you will add to my life much more than I think. Thanks and God bless

Hello sir, being a person who is cares about understanding life and it's teachings, I love to express what I feel about it, it makes me free. Reading your letter just reminded me of my Margaret and all of my gurus who helped me to understand my life in better way. I totally agree with the very concept of your book. Life is all about learning from events of day to day. Every time there is a clue and some lesson which helps you to deal the events of future. We only need to understand the clue and what we usually do is ignore them. Life won't become simple but if we pay attention, we will always have some answer to the problems we face. It was really nice of you to share this letter with us. U just became another guru who came by to remind me of what am I meant for. Thanks.

Thank you for this inspiring letter. I thoroughly enjoyed your book and went back to reread the stories that spoke to me most. I was handed a challenge during this time and inspired by "I decided I was smarter than I thought I was", I took the plunge. It didn't work out, but I felt empowered to investigate further. Thank you. I'm starting a new phase of life right now in a country village and meeting all kinds of folk. I try to be open to my gurus. I have already met several. Thank you for reminding me of the many truths I had forgotten. You have enriched my life. I am very grateful.
