Product description

Product Description

From humble beginnings, Rob White went on to become very successful in the real estate and restaurant business. At the same time that he began enjoying material wealth, he experienced a deepening feeling of inner emptiness. So he sought out world-class gurus to help him understand better how to live a full, rich life. However, he eventually discovered that the most helpful gurus aren’t necessarily bestselling self-help authors, world-famous keynote speakers, or famous workshop leaders — they’re unassuming gurus that everyone encounters on their journey through life. These “everyday” teachers awakened Rob to powerful insights and life lessons that are superb starting points for a new life.

This book recaps twenty one of Rob’s awakening moments in inspirational, warm, and entertaining stories. You’ll read about a grade school student who, with one simple question, helped Rob gain a deeper understanding of the true meaning of life. You’ll meet a Maasai mother who demonstrated that we’re much more than we dare to imagine. And you’ll meet a former peanut vendor who turned medical wisdom on its head by simply deciding that he wasn’t going to die.

And Then I Met Margaret demonstrates that life is always supporting you by sending the right and perfect person to help you learn what you next need to know in order to grow. Rob wrote this book to alert you to the many unexpected teachers who can help shatter the myths that keep you from you experiencing life to the fullest and achieving your dreams and goals.

After reading And Then I Met Margaret, you’ll never see the world the same way. You may even recognize an unexpected guru or two as you travel the journey of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Awesome Book 5 May 2017
By Practical - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was an amazing book! I have to admit, when I read the description, I was sure it was going to be extremely religious and was initially really turned off by the prospect. I read a few reviews online for it and saw lots of good feedback, but I still had my doubts. I figured, the people that really loved the book are exactly the type of people who would be drawn to a sort of embrace-the-positive-and-you'll-be-successful sort of self-help book I thought this would be, ie. not me at all.
Still, I was intrigued on just what the title was referring to. And, I didn't want to think I was such a cynic that I couldn't give a book a chance just because of my perceived notion of it. The prologue explaining all of the well-known people the author had encountered convinced me to really give it a shot.
By the first chapter, though, I was hooked. I'm a sucker for a good autobiography and this book really read like that. I'm also a sucker for really good anecdotal stories that make you think, especially serendipitous stories which is largely what the stories in this book revolve around. It's almost an assortment of modern-day fables, another type of story for which I've always had a soft spot.
Many of the stories were humorous as well as uplifting. They were also motivational without the pressing feeling of many motivational books which so often tell you what you should be doing. This book was the author telling you what he did and capturing the essence of his life lessons in well-turned phrases. In fact, the entire book was well-written. The flow was really great. He's an awesome story teller and his word choice, I felt, was always spot-on. It's refreshing to pick up a book and finish it all in one sitting. That's usually only possible under two conditions, from my experience. One, the book has to be engaging. Two, the book has to flow so well, you can get wrapped up in it, stay wrapped up in it, and move steadily through it.
I was very surprised I liked the book as much as I did, especially since I was extremely skeptical about how much I could really trust the glowing reviews from other readers. I actually think I will go back to this book over and over again, if only to reread a few particular chapters that were quite poignant. I was especially struck by the story of the pennies as it reminded me so much of the ideologies imbued in Ayn Rand's novel, Atlas Shrugged, about fair trades. I also really enjoyed the story about his job on the groundskeeping crew at his university. I have a feeling I'll be reminding myself to "Pay Attention" much more often now. I may even try out "Let me put it this way" the next time I want to get my point across.
This was a really awesome book. I highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a read that's uplifting, a bit empowering, and really fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you think! 22 May 2017

And Then I Met Margaret
I really loved this book, and appreciated the timing of when it crossed my path in life. It is a collection of “short stories”, all that teach some sort of lesson if you’re willing to hear it. The author starts each story or chapter with a stated “myth”, and then ends each with “the reality that I discovered”—something that is learned to clarify the myth by each story. I read this book at a time of change and uncertainty in my own life, and it really helped me to put things in perspective and get almost excited about what lies ahead. We cross paths with people and situations every single day that can definitely teach us a lesson about our lives. Sometimes the challenge is about opening ourselves to see and accept the situation. This book did this for me, and will be something that I pull back out from time to time.

And Then I Met Margaret is a nice change from other books in this category. While, you can learn things from professional so called gurus, you can learn quite a bit from everyday people who can help teach us things we would otherwise miss. I enjoyed reading the author's personal accounts of lessons from different people. I couldn't believe how badly women were viewed in their 30's if they were not married, when I read about his aunt. It is unfortunate, that her single marriage proposal was called off simply because she was thirty-four years old. But it was nice reading about how she saved the deck of cards that contained many memories between her and the author. I also appreciate how the author writes myths he believed and realities he discovered. The author also wrote some creative chapter titles which peaked my interest for most of the chapters. I found that while I was reading the book, it put more things into perspective in my own life. I could relate to some of the author's journey even though I am not the same age. The book is inspiring and it gives many different realities. I think this book could be useful to anyone looking for perspective and inspiration. Once I read the Margaret section, I also understood why it was such an impactful time for the author. It also made me think. But more importantly this whole book made me appreciate things even more. There are lessons everywhere if we open our eyes to them and the people that truly teach us.
5.0 out of 5 stars this book will help you to see the beauty in everything 28 March 2017

And then I Met Margaret by Rob White is self-help book that revolves around the life of the author himself. Im not really a big fan of self-help book but once in a while, I will read one in the genre. A really good self-help book would change your life and that is exactly what I feel with this book. Being successful in your career doesnt mean anything if you are not happy with those. This story reminds of a TED Talk I recently watched, its about a woman who has a successful career but somehow, her ‘hum stop. I could definitely relate to both stories because its happening in everyone life; you could be successful in your life but you are simply not content with your life and that is not okay. Somehow, you are blind to another

The story is very easy to read and very easy to understand, the author keeps the story flow by writing about his background and his past and how he manages to change his life. As for every chapter in the book, its like a collection of short stories about his ‘life lesson. I really like it because I could relate to the incidents that he encountered and could relate to the life lesson ignited by those.

If you are searching for a book that could change your perspective in life, this is the one. You will finish this book with a feeling of understanding a new meaning in life. Sometimes, you are blind to another lesson because you are too busy to notice it; this book will help you to see the beauty in everything.
4.0 out of 5 stars You'll Probably Feel Better After Reading This 7 March 2017

Generally speaking I'm not one for self-help books or books that seek to inspire readers with the astounding life lessons their authors have to come to know that can apply to anyone. Everyone's life being unique, I find it hard to believe that one person could have come up with answers that can be utilized in any situation. Therefore, it was with some degree of skepticism that I decided to take a look at this book. However, I soon found that I was mistaken.

And Then I Met Margaret is a cheerily written account of how a teacher turned to real estate success has learned some home truths about himself along the way and how he wants to share those with the rest of us. Through a serious of delightfully confessional and honest vignettes about various people that he has come across in his life, Mr. White imparts insights that he has come to which have helped him and very well may help his readers. These range from his Aunt Theresa who although she was scorned by the small mindedness of her tiny Massachusetts town, taught him love and compassion, to his Uncle Fred whose perpetual optimism was a continual source of motivation, to how his witnessing of the actions of an anonymous surfer Mom in California who encouraged her son to keep riding the waves after his first bad wipeout helped turn Mr. White's worst financial failure in the San Francisco earthquake of 1989, into a later triumph. All of these helped shape his outlook on life and that is a wisdom that he felt compelled to communicate. All of the individual stories in the book are interesting and although some contain great sadness and adversity are never without a sense of hope to to them. But, for me the most refreshing part of the And Then I Met Margaret, is how the home truths that Mr. White relates are not meant to the be all end all answers to all of life's questions, but some convictions that he is come to personally that may be a benefit to anyone who decides to read his book.

So, if you find yourself in need of some answers or are just looking to make yourself feel better, you should read this book. There is nothing about it that is negative.
