The Four Agreements

June 2013

The Four Agreements is described as a new-age self-help book filled with insightful and thought-provoking content. Though the author provided some  practical guidelines to finding freedom, we were all thoroughly disappointed with this one.

We enjoyed the overall concept of this book and made a few connections to our personal lives during our book club discussion. Unfortunately, we didn't find anything profound or mind-blowing in his delivery of these agreements. There was a lot of fluff, repetition and the writing was weak. At times it felt a bit juvenile as though it were written by a teenage boy trying to find himself. 

Hopefully we can save you some time by summing up this boook for you:

1) Be impeccable with your word
2) Don't take anything personally
3) Don't make assumptions
4) Always do your best

10 thumbs down! 

(We would have given this book zero wine glasses out of five, but one is the lowest.)

In 2010, our book club, Women Wine and Word, started out as a brilliant idea from one of our members (we call her the queen). We meet once a month to discuss our books, eat some food, drink a little wine, and have fun with our friends.

We invite you to check out our monthly blogs, browse through our reading list, or take a peek at our book reviews (FYI - only a few books have received 5/5 wine glasses).
