"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)
This book right here is 2nd to the Holy Bible in my honest opinion. It helps pinpoint your doubts and fears while teaching you common principals to help battle the "black magic." I would recommend this to any other young millennial or anyone at that. My reason for such the high rating would be the impact it had on me but also the wide area of how it affects all of us directly. It leaves a lot of room for healing in growth in all of us, I highly suggest this book.
Practical information pertaining to personal awareness. The book is written in simple, yet profound, language. Application of the agreements provides results that are measurable according to an individual's application of them. Great read! Greater revelations about TRUTH.
This is book is just amazing.... In every sense if the word.... Everyone should read and try to apply this to their life..... Heaven can be found right here if we are open to it and allow ourselves to experience it's true freedom and joy
Recomanded for all of it. Beautiful though, true and examples. Miguel was use beautiful language and voice for reading is awesome. You should do it, not only read. Recommended to read each year:)
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook of the Four Agreements, and it was beautifully narrated by Peter Coyote. His voice was perfect for this book, soothing and inspirational, and I found myself really looking forward to listening to it. The agreements described in the book are timeless and the stories are deeply moving.
I recommend this audiobook to anyone interested in furthering their spiritual knowledge....
"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!
"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 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
"peace, beauty, wisdom in one place"
I suggest you to read this book. It is really nice book, it gives you new perspective how to see the world.
"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.
