I have read a good bit of Don Miguel Ruiz and Don Miguel Ruiz Jr's books.

What I like about the four agreements is that it teaches you a way of life, a system of values that transforms your character-- be impeccable with your word, don't make assumptions, don't take things personally and do your best.  This is good advice.

While there is a good point to be made that the voice in your head "isn't really you" and you should disbelieve what it says, there is a danger to this from the TROM viewpoint.  Once you put that voice in your head in the class of "not self" it will not obey your postulates.

Before TROM, I tried this and I believe that fighting with that voice really beefed up my case.

So just a word of caution on that philosophy.
