though i've read this before, am reading again. it's cool to see where i was when i first read it as opposed to know. i've grown a lot since then. the agreements are totally practical, and i'm glad to review them for reinforcement.
This book should be read every year, say, on one's birthday - or, if your birthday falls on a major holiday, every half-birthday!

Stated differently: Change your thoughts, change your life.

Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a family of healers, and raised in rural Mexico by a curandera (healer) mother and a nagual (shaman) grandfather. The family anticipated that Miguel would embrace their centuries-old legacy of healing and teaching, and carry forward the esoteric Toltec knowledge. Instead, distracted by modern life, Miguel chose to attend medical school and become a surgeon. A near-death experience changed his life. Stunned by this experience, he began an intensive practice of self-inquiry. He devoted himself to the mastery of the ancient ancestral wisdom, studying earnestly with his mother, and completing an apprenticeship with a powerful shaman in the Mexican desert. In the tradition of the Toltecs, a nagual guides an individual to personal freedom.
