THE FOUR AGREEMENTS (see also Section 11) by don Miguel
Ruiz is a short yet powerful book that contains useful advice
about how to recognize self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and
create needless suffering . . . based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the
agreements seem to be so basic to apply--but in reality they
are much more difficult to implement.
Nevertheless, I still find myself thinking about them and how
to relate what they say to my daily life . . . should you want
to join me in the task, consider how you can:
BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the
word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power
of your word in the direction of truth and love.
DON'T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a
projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are
immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the
victim of endless suffering.
DON'T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really
want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid
misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one
agreement, you can completely transform your life.
ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
Your best is going to change from moment to moment, it will be different
when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance,
simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse
and regret.
Also, I very much liked this one other passage:
Making assumptions in our relationships is really asking for problems.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed the book, but it was very repetitive and a little simplistic. Lots nifty ideas with a few interesting metaphors and insights... The book doesn't provide many revelations (if any). It mostly serves to re-enforce what we already know is right and true. We've all heard a million versions of the ideas delivered in this book. Stuff like:
"Say what you mean. Mean what you say"
"Assuming makes an ASS out of U and ME"
You get the idea... Read this book as a reminder. Read it to gain an alternate perspective. I would recommend it to anyone who is on a path to self-discovery. Remedial or not, the toltec perspective referenced in this book is a valuable one...
One thing I've noticed about most of the negative reviews. They all seem a little bit angry. Perhaps too angry to be receptive to a book with such a positive spin...

I love this book and the words within it. I read it over and over again. I strive to live by the four agreements.

As usual, I used the Amazon customer reviews to help me decide whether to buy this book.
This is the first time that I found those reviews to be sooooo far off target!
This book is such a disappointment. OK, there are 4 interesting & true messages - read the table of contents and save your money. You won't get much more out of buying the book and reading all of the author's bla bla bla.
The prose really made me think that the author had just sat down and wrote the book in one sitting; or maybe just spoke it into his dictaphone in one day and had his secretary type it up.
There is nothing new or earth-shattering here. I would certainly not dare to call it a "self help" book.
Save your money & buy something else.

Format: Paperback
I'm not sure I'd recommend this book as it doesn't get very deep into any of the Four Agreements outlined. It essentially presents them on a basic level and keeps reiterating the same thing. Not a book where you're constantly underlining the outstanding outpoints or revelations. There are a few good quotes in it, but the rest of it is simply stating he obvious.

It's the way it's written - accessible
It's the contents - simple and challenging
(all simple things are not easy!)
It's the right intention - as it comes through with spirit, energy, intelligence and wit.
Great book for a new comer to spiritual development, great book for a seasoned metaphysician as it's challenging work to clear our blockages, and purify our hearts and minds.

Arrived on time for a trip to Brazil where the book was mandatory reading. Read it on the 39 hours flight/waits/all nightlong!

I think I have bought at least six copies of this book to give to my children and grandchildren. A day rarely goes by that I don't think about something I read in it and say to myself, "If I had just remembered this agreement, (for instance, 'Don't assume anything,')
I would not be in this predicament! This book contains all I need to stay out of trouble and live a good life.
