I read The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz while I was going through the beginning of the end. My marriage of 15-years had ended and as usual I found solace in the pages of a book. So far, literature had helped me give up smoking, drinking, get out of debt, quit my job and so why wouldn’t it also help me get through the toughest test in my life so far.
The book is a very small one and I read it in one sitting, something I had never done before. I was flying to Vienna to work at a poker tournament when I started reading it, and the person seated next to me must have thought I was mad as I cried several times throughout.
