Amazing how many christians are made about this book This book is about how we how the self is the source of our own happiness All the author is saying is that our thoughts drive our beliefs and actions When we stop judging and hurting ourselves then we can enjoy life even when other people try to hurt or obstruct us You need to look inside u for answers It is not about giving up ur belief in God it is about giving up beliefs that cause u to suffer by ur own hand of the hand of others Stop reading into this as turning against the Bible The book is about finding and attaining inner peace That is it The book was helpful to me

When I bought this book years ago - I thought it was poorly written (couldn't get beyond that point), for the simpletons in life, not for the intelligent (me), boring, too easy of a read, and strange (I wasn't buying the whole Toltec BS). So I gave it (gladly) to the library or other suckers to read. I just re-read it on my Nook. I had gone through enough pain and trauma since I first bought it - that I was now ready for it. My life before was a fairy tale and I didn't know it, I was living a lie. Of course I was not able to see the extreme life truths in the book. When living a lie you only see what you choose. Now I see my life as it is - the whole truth: the sadness, the mourning, the joys, the realities. I am now older and wiser. And now I see the truth in the book - it is meant for the wise. It is meant only for people who are ready to read it's truths - no matter how simple (keep it simple, stupid), no matter how easy a read it is (not poorly written), no matter how strange the Toltec BS might seem (so what? We are all strange.) Read it - but if you think it is dumb - it is because you simply are not ready. It's ok, it took me years to wise up.

Heard some good things with regard to Ruiz's novels, so I decided to read this one. I can honestly say that I genuinely enjoyed this book a lot. It wasn't bland and boring; it was just really inspirational and motivational. It's simple but complex and nicely written. It's a quick read if you become immersed in it and can't put it down. Frankly, I find it really annoying that there are people rating this book poorly and criticizing the author for "going against your religious beliefs" — specifically, where he discusses sins and sinning. Ironically, you're going against some of The Four Agreements by failing to promote love and TAKING THINGS PERSONALLY. Put your religious beliefs aside for just a moment and read this book with an open mind and a simple spiritual mentality, and you're guaranteed to close the book with newly acquired clarity and inspiration. I recommend this book to everyone, and I'm definitely checking out his other stuff.

I personally loved this book. If you think about it, the four agreements are common sense and we have always known about them but after reading this book I've started to put them into practice. If you do that your life will change. I have to say the readers that have given bad reviews based on the content of the book mostly likely misunderstood the four agreements. Someone said that "it teaches you to be self centered". That is absolutely not true. It doesn't teach you to not care about others when they are angry with you; it teaches you to understand where they are coming from. It helps you respond better to conflict. The four agreements will help you become a stronger person. What is really great about this book is that you can apply what you learn from it in your every day life it will do wonders at the work place if applied correctly. If you are thinking about reading this book then please just do it. I couldn't believe this book had any negative reviews!

Serious? Rather read these This book could have been one chapter. The teaching is profound, but the theory that substantiates or develops it is a bit light and open to being hijacked by the very traits these teachings seek to liberate one from. If what you want some theory, this is your book. Serious students of self-development will know one will need practical tools to develop the SKILLS needed to even implement these teachings effectively. For those willing to put in the work, I recommend: Whisperings of the Dragon, and Shadows in the Twilight by Lujan Matus -which should be shown below. Aspiring shamans and healers will benefit greatly as well as those interested in Qigong.

A friend let me borrow the book and I loved it. So i wanted my own copy and found it on Amazon for $7 but I did not buy it because I thought it would be less expensive through B&N Nook. I was wrong and it doesn't make sense that a digital book is more expensive than a paperback. Amazon will be getting my business.

I liked this book so much that I am going to by it in paperback. This is a keeper. Read it, you just might learn something. I am going to have my teenage son read it.

This author contradicts his own advice many times. Also many of the run on descriptions of his meaningful steps should have been trimmed dramatically, giving way to a better method of which to utilize his 'steps'. May i have a refund???

This is a beautiful book that opens your mind and your heart to wonderful oppotunities in life. I loved my time reading it and am thankful that I stumbled upon the author in a television interview.

I was interested because I've been reading life philosophy books and this book crossed my radar. It was interesring enough, but was very floaty when it came to the writting. It makes some reasonable claims on living a good life, but it also makes some weird claims, such as getting cancer from someone telling you you have cancer. Despite that, it is mostly harmless and I dare say maybe good, useful advce for some. It's not for me thiugh.

Life lessons in simplistic language. This book provides a simple message in four agreements. Many of which we have heard before, however the book places the information in inspiring context.

This is the kind of book you will always keep by your side to refer to everyday as a reminder of how to live a simple and honorable life to the best of your ability. Since reading it, I have calmed down a lot and look at things a lot differently. This book has given me freedom to live a better life for myself, my son and my family.
