The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements  by Don Miguel Ruiz
Weight: 11.2 oz
Method of Disposal: Donating to AKF

I am not impressed.  This was a gift, and I had heard so many people rave on about it.  According to the author, we are all living in hell and only those that follow this wisdom can find heaven on earth.  It. Was. Awful.  He offers us four basic agreements:  Be Impeccable With Your Word, Don’t Take Anything Personally, Don’t Make Assumptions,  and Always Do Your Best.  It is sad to me that as a culture being reminded of basic humanity feels like a spiritual revolution. 
The author not only has very little to say, but he seems to be aware of it.  He is so redundant you will start to feel like an unruly toddler being told no over and over again each time you reach for your mom’s soda.  Terrible.  Do not recommend it.  I do, however, recommend that you try to be a good human being.  Every single day.  And that you are not too hard on yourself when you slip up. Do your best and whatnot.
