I liked this book, but compared to The Four Agreements, it is not as tight or tidy, so to speak. The book presents some very good points, but it is a bit repetitive at times. In other words, what he did in about 200 pages, he could have done in 100, or at least 150, without losing the essence of the message.

The main thing I took away from it was the need to look into ourselves. This is a common sense concept and important because it leads to the idea that we cannot love or respect others if we do not love or respect ourselves first. You need to be aware, then you need to work towards forgiveness, then attain love. Some of the ideas from his previous book are here, particularly the idea of not taking things personally. Very often, people do things which may seem personal but are not. Notice I say "very often." I have struggled with Ruiz's idea of not taking it personal because there are always one or two not so nice people out there more than willing to harm you. Maybe it is the cynic in me, or maybe I just need to work more on some things. Anyhow, it is a book well worth reading. I think it may be beneficial for some couples as well, but do be warned, it can get a bit wordy sometimes. And that wordiness is what made me give it just the three stars instead of four. It made the pacing go a bit slow for the reading. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this. A quick read but important. Certainly opened my eyes to some of the things I was doing without realizing. I can see myself reading this (Along with The Four Agreements) at least once a year as a good mental reminder on things I should and shouldn't be doing (For my own mental health) ( )

This book took a while to read. Hard to understand at times because of how it's written, but overall a good book. Repetitive at times too, but I guess that's the whole point. Glad I stuck with it. Personally, what would summarize it best would be, "Life is nothing but a dream, and it you create your life with Love, your dream becomes a masterpiece of art." ( )

While this book is purported to be written by a "nagual" from an ancient lineage of shamans, the terminology is more akin to positive new thought teachings. This book is about mastering the power of love. Written in parables, it does not compare well with the works of Castaneda or Ken Eagle Feather. ( )
