  • Great book

    By bby.ruthless
    A book I reread
  • Short read, not much depth

    By somethingelsefl
    The principles are wonderful. But I feel like he added a LOT of filler. Honestly, some it sounds purposefully made it to fit the narrative, even though I doubt he was doing that. Additionally we read this as part of a book study. In the group we would start of positive, but inevitably with each chapter we would ultimately find enormous and glaring flaws in his “spiritual logic” That being said. I still read and recommend this book. But primarily to people struggling to identify and use spiritual principles in their daily life.
  • OK

    By Lizzy3w
    I mean it is OK. Basis stuff: don’t judge yourself & others, don’t get offended when people say bad things... but I don’t get why this is so popular. It didn’t change my life or give me an inspiration. It is easy to tell people “hey everyone’s life experience is different, so don’t get offended by anything” ... that was the entire book
  • My Entire View Has Changed

    By Tapfarmrocks
    Since I’m stuck at home during quarantine and trying my best to work on loving myself, I decided to give this book a try. I’ve seen it recommended on a lot of social media platforms saying that it “changed their lives.” I can say that this is true. When I was reading this, not only did I breakdown, I realized that my entire way of thinking was an entire lie. I’m going to take the four agreements with me everywhere. This novel is seriously transformative, and I wish I would’ve read this when I was younger. If you’re thinking about reading this, please do!
