After decades of apprenticeship with his father, Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. has penned The Five Levels of Attachment, where he builds on the Toltec principals found in his father's book, The Four Agreements.
With language and analogies appropriate for the world we live in today, The Five Levels of Attachment provides readers a guide to understanding the ways in which they are attached to their belief structures, and how this attachment creates suffering in their lives.
Using easy to understand and comfortable, poetic language, Ruiz clearly defines each level of attachment, and invites the reader to look at their own lives and see how an unhealthy level of attachment can keep them trapped in the fog of Mitote, a Toltec concept similar to the Hindu idea of Maya.
Ruiz invites the reader to reclaim their true freedom by consciously detaching from their beliefs, and walking down the levels of attachment from the highest and most detrimental level of attachment, fanaticism, back to the lowest and most harmonious level, the authentic self.

A love the format of the text in the book. It makes it easy for me to read and the book is not very large so you can go through it rather quickly. That being said it is well written and it gave me a lot of advice on letting go on things that are inhibiting growth in my life. If you want a book to help you with self-love and acceptance, this would be a great introduction into that. Towards the end of the book, you get exercises to help you on your way to self-love.
