Too many religious references. Too much for a 21st century book. The author has certainly done a good analysis on some religious symbolic stories but that doesn't necessarily relate to 12 rules of life for a modern human being. Definitely a good book for religious readers or priests.

I love Robert's Rich dad poor dad but this book doesn't have much to say. Too much repetitions; in an annoying level. Very obvious things being repeated over and over and over. Especially in first half of the book. The first half of the book could be summarised in a few lines. Taking advice from his "Rich dad poor dad", taking action on your learnings from that book could be way more helpful than reading this book.

In The Four Agreements, a New York Times best seller for over seven years, don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or “domestication,” can make us forget the wisdom we were born with. Throughout our lives, we make many agreements that go against ourselves and create needless suffering.

I guess the whole book could be summarised in 10 to 20 pages. So much unnecessary repetition.
