I truly endeavor to read this book once a year. Parts of this book were instantly illuminating and brought aha! moments upon me. There were other points that took longer to sink in. Every time I read this book, it made a little more sense and felt more ingrained in my heart and soul. But truly, from the first read, there were nuggets of wisdom that changed my life for the better.

Ruiz's book is simple and straight forward. For some people who have been seeking for some time it might be too simplistic. At the time I read it I was ready to release old thinking and was able to experience healing from past hurts. I am not a writer, I wish I could express how much impact this book had on me. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking why life isn't working for them, going thru a life trauma (divorce), etc. A great tool in breaking free of inaccurate thinking.

"Publishers Weekly Review"
by Publishers Weekly,
"Like the popular works of Carlos Castaneda, Ruiz's teachings focus on dreams and visions....A series of four 'agreements' are detailed, which make up a larger picture of unconditional human faith." Publishers Weekly
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.
Rooted in traditional Toltec wisdom beliefs, four agreements in life are essential steps on the path to personal freedom. As beliefs are transformed through maintaining these agreements, shamanic teacher and healer don Miguel Ruiz asserts lives will "become filled with grace, peace, and unconditional love."
