Publisher's Summary

In The Four Agreements, a New York Times best seller for over seven years, don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or “domestication,” can make us forget the wisdom we were born with. Throughout our lives, we make many agreements that go against ourselves and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements help us to break these self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness, and love. Now don Miguel Ruiz joins his son don Jose Ruiz to offer a fresh perspective on the Four Agreements, and a powerful new agreement for transforming our lives into our personal heaven: the fifth agreement. The Fifth Agreement takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the Self, and returns us to the authenticity we were born with. In this compelling sequel to the book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are.

    "Fantastic! The next evolution of the toltec wisdom"

    This book is not just a review of the four agreements plus the fifth. It IS a re-statement of the first four agreements, but in much more detail and in more common language. I first became aware of the Toltec wisdom through Carlos Castaneda's series "the teachings of Don juan..." and they were impressive yet they seemed a distant unreachable wisdom in some far off world/ time shrouded in mystery etc. Then Merylin Tenneshende's book "Don Juan and the art of sexual energy" took the next step toward making the wisdom more tangible for the masses.

    then Don Miguel Ruiz released "The four agreements" and it rose to great popularity in its profound power to help people transform their lives. It has served many people to such a transformations. It is a MUST READ in it's own right.

    And now...

    This new book "The fifth agreement..." is a crowning achievement of the Ruiz family to bring this level of clear communication of these Toltec teachings for everyone to reach. It speaks the teachings in such concise, direct, plain language using a wonderfully contemporary style.

    Excellent! (Speaking impeccably) Totally worth it in my opinion!

    "Excellent guide for people who are ready for it."

    A very abstract view of how to view the world and your life. Excellent narration. Not a lot of fluff either. Concise and difficult to understand topics repeated in different ways to insure you understand the concept. Probably not for everyone though. Pretty deep stuff.

    "The Four Didn't Need More"

    I originally read the Four Agreements years ago and they changed me and the way I lived my life. Agreement number 2 especially (don't take anything personally) made a difference and continues to do that today.
    The Fifth Agreement is a good refresher for the original Four and an interesting addition to the agreements. Well worth the read. Not as impactful as the first book but how could it be, it was only 1 agreement against four. Thanks Don Ruiz, again!

    "A more robust "chicken soup' for your SOUL*"

    It's very good to read books from people who have the patience and discipline to write/share about matters of the heart, soul and spirit of living in/of which you are simpatico. Although this is a sequel to The 4 Agreements, it is NOT necessary to read the previous title. As all areas are covered within these pages/chapters.
    The pros of the audiobook format is perfect for this genre of books/authors 1. you can bookmark certain sections that are significant and replay them during the times you might need to hear them. 2. Miguel's universal prayers are always good to have on tap during trying times.
    Peter Coyote voice is heartfelt. It's very important that the voice reflects the author and his point of view/prespective especially in this genre. ONE of my FAVE-st authors!

    I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.

    "Loved it! It was better than the Four Agreements!"

    I really enjoyed this book and I think it was better than the Four Agreements, which was awesome in itself! Some reviewers feel that it is the same as the Four Agreements and that there is no sense in reading both, but I think they are both worth their own merit.

    "Great, but too similar to 4 agreements."

    The book itself is great and i would recommend it definitely if you have not read The Four Agreements. And I would recommend it over 4 agreements, But seriously 80% of the book is an more of the same. So definitely buy one of them but not both.

    "worth a listen"
    Where does The Fifth Agreement rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    on the top shelf with my favorite books. a disconcerting book that asked me to look at a lot of old beliefs that when honestly examined, without rancor toward anyone, question what i choose to accept as reality. refreshing and liberating. i feel the author turned himself inside out to be as authentic a human being as possible, share that valuable experience and knowledge and not to be missed.


    What other book might you compare The Fifth Agreement to and why?

    the new testament of the bible and autobiography of a yogi because they are simple, unique and respectful of other people's beliefs, cultures and religions. i find these three books helpful in resolving the conflicts that accompany being a human beling and bring about a peace that is a divine right when you're willing to be that brave...i'm still trying!


    Have you listened to any of Peter Coyote’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes. his narration of the four agreements. i found his performance to be excellent.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Fifth Agreement?

    i'm not telling...


    Any additional comments?

    i enjoyed and gained something very valluable from both of these books.

    "Excellent!"
    Any additional comments?

    The beginning of this book nicely revisits "The Four Agreements," then continues to expand into the next level of perception. There is a loving, supportive attitude throughout as well, as though it was your grandfather talking to you. And a simple call for activism.

    "Back to basics inspiration"

    This practical guide adds to Ruiz' first book on the 4 agreements. It is back to basics common sense the Toltec way and can be applied by anyone and everyone. Truly inspiring and simple, and made all the more enjoyable when heard through the chocolatey tones of Peter Coyote's voice. Highly recommended.

    "repetitive"

    I couldn't get past the first 2 chapters of this book. It is so repetitive it drove me mad. It seems there is one idea in the book and this is endlessly repeated in different ways ad nauseum. The idea is not even original. Very disappointing as I loved "the four agreements" by the same author. It is basically terribly dull.
