About the Book

Featured in the premiere issue of O: The Oprah Magazine and on Oprah's Favorite Things 2000 segment, The Four Agreements reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob people of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements -- be impeccable with your word, don't take anything personally, don't make assumptions, always do your best -- offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform life into a new experience of freedom, love, and true happiness. This jacketed linen-bound hardcover gift edition features two-color printing and a silk ribbon marker.

About the Reviews

The book helped me understand the following:

  1.  I can’t blame my parents for how they raised me. That’s what they were taught by their parents and the environment around them.
  2.  I am responsible for my own thoughts, emotions and actions. No one can force me to do anything unless I choose to .
  3.  People’s perspectives are based on their own experiences. I don’t have to react to them since they are not mine.
  4.  It’s possible to be authentic with yourself and others.

*********************************

I came to this book later than most, but discovered it during a time of personal awakening and spiritual growth. The perfect time. The Four Agreements outlines how to live a life filled with love and joy, and how to start with loving yourself unconditionally, then spreading that love to the rest of humanity and creation.

As a believer in Christ, I see the Word and wisdom of God in these pages. As a spiritual being, I connected with each tenet and knew instinctively how profound but simple it all is.

These aren’t rules. These are beliefs you can adopt to guide your spiritual growth. I recommend this uplifting read to everyone seeking wisdom and joy.

*********************************

This short book is beautiful in its simplicity and accessibility. It is written in such a way that virtually anyone can understand it. What I mean is, the language is appropriate even for those who have no background in philosophy.

I have applied its principles in my professional and personal life and found them to be challenging, but attainable. I have been better able to manage my stress and find peace more often. I also bought two copies to loan out to my clients, and they too have responded very positively to its teachings.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who perhaps needs a new perspective on how to manage stress and find peace -- especially if you are in a service profession.
