And Then I Met Margaret Mass Market Paperback – January 14, 2014
|New from||Used from|
This was an inspirational light hearted read. It just shows that being successful can mean so many different things. It s not just about the money. When Rob finally made his money he didn t really feel successful inside. This propelled Rob on an international journey through which he met and spoke with a who s-who of world-famous self-help gurus. However, along the way he discovered the secrets to spiritual satisfaction came not through bestseller authors but ordinary people that were right under his nose. --Brian Corbino

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.
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.
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.
