Love it !5 star

Great book..55


Wide open5 star

This book took me on a journey of insight that I didn’t know I needed. Though I started out close minded to the stories it began with, I eventually laid down my judgement and received the wisdom each section of the chapters revealed. Blown away at the authors ability to pull the reader in and shift the perceptions and feelings that people generally want to free from but stay in because it is familiar, but by learning to let go the radiance of life spears through with endless possibilities!55

This book almost reads as though it was written for children (and maybe it is?) but the message is so impactful. I have been using the four agreements in my daily life and they make a huge difference. Highly recommended.55
