"Despite the New Age-sounding language, Ruiz is refreshingly clear in the presentation of his ideas. Reading aloud, actor Coyote sounds every bit the enthusiastic old hippie, genuinely excited by the concepts he is spinning." (Publishers Weekly)
I decided to read this book because I was going through a tough time in my life and I need to reevaluate the person that I was. I was unsure of myself and the life I had been living or not living really. This book really opened my eyes to stop living in the past to be excited for the future and to live in the present.
I really enjoyed this book, it's extremely sis synced to the point. However, it could have been even less repetitive – by all means it is a great book, I'm just being picky :-)
I don't see how this book couldn't become one of the greatest pieces of wisdom literature on par with any of the world's scriptures, if not more so, in due time
there were so many amazing quotes and moments of eureka i experienced while reading this book!
What a beautiful book! It takes you into an amazing journey of the human condition and provides instructions on how to achieve inner peace love and bliss. Highly recommended.
"Tools For Life"
This is a brilliant book with an excellent audio edition. It describes four simple agreements to make with yourself, which allow you to increase your control over how you experience your life: 1) Be impeccable with your word; 2) Don't take anything personally; 3) Don't make assumptions; 4) Always do your best. Simple does not mean easy! Don Miguel's book helps the reader have the power of these agreements and use it. Peter Coyote's reading is a delight which helps the learning process. This is timeless work that can be referred to time and again. I found the Four Agreements even more powerful than Stephen Covey's Seven Habits, which is saying a lot. And just like the Seven Habits, the Four Agreements are powerful in all aspects of your life including family, work and leisure time.
"An interesting perspective"
I was initially put off by the rather religious stance at the beginning of the book. I decided to stick to it and keep listening. I was rewarded as the book laid out some useful principles:
1. Be Impeccable With Your Words.
2. Don't Take Anything Personally.
3. Don't Make Assumptions.
4. Always Do Your Best.
Simple, not always easy to practice but resonates with me!
"good basic principles"
the fundametal rules r all you need to remind yourself after listening.
grateful for the simple realisation, especially about assumption.
"Short and Sweet....no no Short and powerful"
This book is short and to the point. It may not be for everyone, however for me it did prompt me to review parts of my life. Because it's not this overly long book, I plan to listen over and over.
"Fabulous little book"
I thought this was some sort of new age BS, it's so not!!! Fabulous little book 🌹
"My journal to Happiness through the four Agreements"
Peter has a soft voice.
Don has wonderful Wisdom. It is directly the answer to all of my agonies.
It is as if he is speaking to me giving guidance for my particular situation with my surrounding. I felt resentment, anger towards rude and inconsiderate behaviour of my family and friends.
It may not be easy but I will definitely transform the situation and become immune to their behaviour by using these technics. I am listening to it again and again till my heart reaches the bliss told at the end of the book. Also listening makes a difference than reading. For me it passes my filtering and judging mind and effects my subliminal consciousness and my heart changes. Thank you Miguel, Peter and Audible.)
"an excellent book, I have read it three times
absolutely loved it
can recommend it to any one seeking inspiration
take a look it will be worth it
This book reaffirms many things I've heard or read somewhere else along my journey in life. It explains how we allow thoughts and feelings from our past to affect and imprison our present and offers a solution to release ourselves from that mental misery. Well worth the time and effort to have a read.
"No words to explain"
It is the most beautiful book I've ever read. It has increased my awareness to the next level and transformed me into a happier bring. Absolutely love it.
A very short and concise book with 4 excellent things to practice in order to start changing your life and attaining freedom of our self-imposed, hateful chains... I keep listening to it over and over again and it is starting to leave a mark, the "seeds" are growing.
I absolutely recommend!!
