What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "Spectacular."
    Would you listen to The Four Agreements again? Why?

    I can't even begin to explain how amazing this book is. If you are ready for the "lessons" you will be blown away. If you want to significantly improve the quality of your life, read this book.


    What other book might you compare The Four Agreements to and why?

    I don't know of any books that can even come close to this book, because it is so well written and the fact there there is a clear "why" makes me love it more. The concept of Eckhart Tolle;s A New Earth and this book are similar, book authors are looking to create Heaven on Earth.


    What about Peter Coyote’s performance did you like?

    he has a nice voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Fell in love.

    "Not that impressed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The 2nd agreement seems to contradict the 1st. Your words have power, so use them carefully; but then don't take anything (good or bad) personally. Find a different book.

    "Loved it!! Will be reading more from the author."
    If you could sum up The Four Agreements in three words, what would they be?

    Great Life Plan


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

    Love the voice, feels authentic to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The beginning/intro was a part that I could've skipped. But, the chapters that talk specifically about the 4 agreements are so true and really help to make it clear what is important in life & how to be better to yourself.

    Story
    "The Four Agreements"
    Would you listen to The Four Agreements again? Why?

    Yes, I believe I have listened three times and purchased the written set "The Four Agreements, Toltec Wisdom Collection"
    I like to sit and read but in the Society in which I live it is really hard to do, so to have an audible version is great to have while on the go.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Don Miguel Ruiz
    His story and his connection with his ancestors.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The idea of our domestication in our society.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    YES, totally an eye opener to ones inner self and what makes us who we are.
    He gives us tools to gain the much needed personal freedom to live as we were intended as human/spiritual beings here on earth.

    "Climbed a mountain and listened."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Four Agreements to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Four Agreements?

    The intensity of each of the four agreements and the common sense of each agreement


    Which character – as performed by Peter Coyote – was your favorite?

    N/a


    What did you learn from The Four Agreements that you would use in your daily life?

    Certainly if you could live by them a little every day and be aware in your mind to keep referring to them life would be a lot easier.


    Any additional comments?

    Listened to it while climbing a mountain in Ireland , the book lasted as long as the climb . At one stage I was near the top and was so engrossed in what I was hearing that I failed to notice I was walking on a ledge with a 1000 ft drop on both sides. I sat down for a moment and faced my fears and moved to the top. The music in the book was very suitable while on this journey as it was Irish traditional and this music has its foundation in places like mountains and wilderness in Ireland.

    "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!

    "Amazing book"

    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.

    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!!
