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.

    "language"
    Would you listen to The Fifth Agreement again? Why?

    Certainly, of course. It requires repeat performances to understand the depth of the lesson.Don Miguel's language speaks from a heart centered prose. The philosophy of the agreements are very simple but also very profound and deep.


    What about Peter Coyote’s performance did you like?

    Yes, he reads.... from his heart

    "Great sequel"
    If you could sum up The Fifth Agreement in three words, what would they be?

    More wisdom from Don Miguel Ruiz


    What does Peter Coyote bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I listen to these books rather than reading them b/c of Peter Coyote's reading.

    "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.

    "Very good"

    Very well written and also the reader was very enjoyable to listen to. I enjoyed the first book and this one was good as well. I would highly recommend listening to both of them multiple times.

    "Very easy to digest the content"
    Would you listen to The Fifth Agreement again? Why?

    I would listen to it again, and have. There are a few new and different parts that resonate with me on each 'read'


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fifth Agreement?

    Like most ideas and concepts I gravitate towards, this book takes many concepts that others complicate and presents it is a well thought out, simple manner.

    "Thought provoking and life changing"

    If you've ever considered the insanity of the world and the way we respond to things. If you've realised that almost everything we stress about is nothing more than self initiated torture, then you will get this book. You have to listen carefully, to really get the concepts, but by the end of the book, you will realise that life need never be the same again. Life changing stuff if you care to take it onboard.

    "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.
