Sit at the foot of a native elder and listen as great wisdom of days long past is passed down. In The Four Agreements shamanic teacher and healer Don Miguel Ruiz exposes self-limiting beliefs and presents a simple yet effective code of personal conduct learned from his Toltec ancestors. Full of grace and simple truth, this handsomely designed book makes a lovely gift for anyone making an elementary change in life, and it reads in a voice that you would expect from an indigenous shaman. The four agreements are these: Be impeccable with your word. Don't take anything personally. Don't make assumptions. Always do your best. It's the how and why one should do these things that make The Four Agreements worth reading and remembering. --P. Randall Cohan

The Four Agreements offers useful insight and a generous helping of inspiration that imparts wisdom in an accessible manner. It provokes thought and encourages the reader to self-reflect and to want to do and be better. It’s also a helpful tool for ensuring more effective communication in your relationships.
While I think highly of this book, there were a few bits I found a little off-putting (eg., the ‘hell on earth’ perspective doesn’t resonate with me and the historical/spiritual-infused storytelling bits weren’t particularly appealing to me either). However, I easily cherry-picked the most useful lessons for me and was left feeling inspired by its overall positivity and motivating content. So much so, that I sent copies to my mom and both sisters and have now ordered the Mastery of Love to read next The Mastery of Love: A Practical Guide to the Art of Relationship, A Toltec Wisdom Book. I think "The Four Agreements" offers something for everyone and is well worth buying and reading -- it's definitely a book you will want to pass on to your friends and loved ones.
However, in terms of casing, I am not satisfied with the quality. There is no clip to hold the front and back together, and the casing is wrapped in soft cover paper, which will wear quite quickly with clumsier people.
All in all, a good purchase.
I highly recommend this book! It is a quick read, so I think you'll definitely get something out of it!
Great seller too!
Loved it! Would highly recommend it!
