Due to our upbringing and cultural characteristics (ideas about what is right and wrong, beautiful and ugly) and due to personal projections (“I must be good”, “I must succeed”) we have learned the erroneous image of ourselves and the world around us. Why then is this book so fascinated? The author’s talent is manifested in the fact that he can explain the four agreements in simple words and on specific examples.

We tend to “inherit” the language of love, accustomed to expressing in it and expect it to return to us in the same understandable love formulas.
