In his first book, Robert White looks at why some people live fulfilled, successful lives, while for others, contentment and real success always seem to be just out of reach. How is it that some people know what they want and go for it, while others flounder and struggle and never seem to discover their real goals and purpose in life? Why are some people able to live extraordinary and joyful lives while, for others, life seems repetitive, flat, a giant yawn, an exercise in high drama or run by fear?
Robert White does not pretend to have all the answers. However, after over thirty years founding and/or leading personal and organizational training companies that have graduated over 1,3000,000 participants from high-impact personal and organizational effectiveness seminars, he’s in a good position to help you explore what works – and doesn’t work – in your life. Could Robert be the "interruption" that you need?

A note from Robert White: “Writing an essay for this Men’s Anthology was a delight! Sometimes writing is sheer agony so when it flows easily, I know I should notice and be grateful for whatever force is moving through me and onto the page.
My subject in this book is identity and I share about three identities that have informed, blocked and guided my life. Included in that story was the value of a weekend I spent with my friend, the late John Denver, as we simultaneously dealt with the sense of loss and pain in unwanted divorces. In recent years I hadn’t thought much about John and our relationship and thought I was somewhat “complete” in my grieving process – after all, his death was in 1997 and that seems a long time ago.
Then in 2011 I joined 8,000 others to celebrate John’s induction as the first honoree of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. The concert was great plus it felt good to re-connect with his former wife Annie and other Aspen friends.
The surprise was my experience of emotional release; of sadness from missing my friend; of anger that he died so young and left me; and of joy that he lived and contributed so much to me and so many others. The experience was one of being ambushed by my own feelings – at first it was an irritation which transitioned into feeling overwhelming gratitude for having my heart opened.
I mention the emotional experience above as an example of what you might find in Ordinary Men, Extraordinary Lives. This book includes chapters by other men sharing more openly than men usually do. You’ll be moved. You’ll learn a lot about yourself and the men in your life. I recommend it highly!”...Learn More!
A note from Robert White: “Bucky Fuller was someone I long admired from afar. I read his books, viewed his architecture and inventions in museums and did more than a little hero worship. Then I heard him speak in Tokyo during the early eighties. I want to keep this brief so I’ll not go into detail about that event – for more you’ll need to read the chapter I wrote for this new anthology A Fuller View edited by L. Steven Seiden.
Bucky challenged the system and offered positive solutions to all of our major challenges – personal and global. He constantly reminded us that each person can make a positive difference. He was often referred to as ‘Grandfather to the Future’ and the John Denver fans out there will recognize those words from the song JD wrote to celebrate Bucky’s birthday, What One Man Can Do.
I’m so very proud to be included as co-author of A Fuller View along with Barbara Marx Hubbard, Werner Erhard, Gary Zukav and Hazel Henderson. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said of the book “prepare to have your world turned upside down.” I agree.”...Learn More!
