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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "It flicked the switch and a huge light turned on.."
    If you could sum up The Fifth Agreement in three words, what would they be?

    It gives perspective.


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

    I haven't heard anything else quite like it.


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

    His sincerity, his beautiful voice - and the way he speaks with such love. He accentuates the depth of the message - and pauses at just the right moments, to give the message time to seep in.
    He's not 'reading' - He's imparting a profound message that can truly change our individual worlds - and thereby, the unity.


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

    Well, it's the totality of all the agreements, that flow into each other. As a totality, I can see that it would be liberating to practice, and become a way of being - that is attainable and sustainable.


    Any additional comments?

    A MUST have - for everyone seeking true peace.

    "Meanderings"
    What disappointed you about The Fifth Agreement?

    It seemed pointless and direction-less after awhile. It wasn't nearly as cohesive or profound as The 4 Agreements.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I don't know, but I think I'm done with don Miguel Ruiz.


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

    He is a fantastic narrator who owns the material. He is perfect for the book. His voice, tone, pauses, simply dead on.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Peter Coyote, and there were parts at the beginning of the book that were interesting.

    "Not bad"
    Would you listen to The Fifth Agreement again? Why?

    I found this helpful but it was a little confusing. This is one of those books you have to listen to more than once, but so is the Four Agreements so I don't think that's bad.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's gives me a nes perspective on the voice in my head and the one that is doing the walking. One talks to the other and this helps me calm my thoughts and emotions.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    NA.


    What did you learn from The Fifth Agreement that you would use in your daily life?

    It helps me calm my inner voice.
