"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've experienced being at peace with myself and it has truly opened up a mew world fir me. BUT I haven't gotten to the point where it has made a difference in my relationship with certain people. it seems the happier I am the angrier they get.
Also I believe wares are caused by greed fir power than by lack of communication.
Very impressive construct to relate to our human experience. I'm about to listen for a 4th.
The narrator is perfect - like an American Indian Morgan Freeman.
This book is the most profound and eye opening piece of art ever created. I see myself in everything that exists and my love is boundless and transferable. This is no new age nonsense. This is a well articulated life changing read. The narrator is perfection and the message is clear and consice. The Angel of Death will give me life. Thank you.
This book contains insight with enough power to change the lives of those ready to hear it. Peter Coyote's oral presentation embodies the work beautifully making it that much easier to connect with the meterial.
"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!
A wonderful book
I love the prayers at the end, they are for people from all religions or not, and i feel connected to the universe by listening to this chapter daily.
Thank you to Mr Ruiz
"Really practical advice if you can get past the over-spiritual and religious background that make up a lot of the stories"
Although the content and agreements are useful and relevant in the 21st century, I felt there was a lot of very religious and over-spiritual elements within the stories.
"A MUST READ"
I have been on the path of spiritual awakening for the last 25 years, and I wish I had come across this book at the beginning of my journey! Now it is a perfect summary of what I have found out myself over the years, wrapped into a beautiful mystical story, the Toltec way of looking at it.
I cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who is looking to find a way to lead a happy life, be free from the fog of limiting beliefs and other effects of our domestication. The four agreements are simple, yet difficult enough to keep in every moment of our life, which is why the fourth agreement is so important.
I will keep this book at the top of my list of favourite books for a long time to come, and certainly read it again to get even more wisdom out of it.
Great sound, easy to understand, simple and life changing wisdom. I loved it all. Thank you.
"great read, read great"
Such an easy listen. this is the 4th time I've listened and I'll keep listening until I get that inner peace. Very much recommended.
"New Dreams are possible"
I loved this book. It was really inspiring. It really makes you aware of the power of words .
"Better than expected."
I was a little sceptical, but I actually quite enjoyed listening to this audiobook. There is no particular religious bias to the teaching, but it was interesting and made complete sense.
This is an audiobook that I will re-listen to at some time.
"a lot to learn... and I'll do my best to"
really good book. gave me lots to think about. I'll enjoy putting it into practice
