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)

    "The Four Agreements"

    This is a fairly good book; a condensed light version of tougher, less-accessible metaphysical stuff. It rambles a bit and tends to promise enlightment but overall it is efficient in the way that it keeps it simple and basic to four manageable principles of action. A remedial reader for those on the journey and an excellent intro for those thinking about it.

    "One of the best audiobooks"

    I highly reccomend this wonderful audiobook. One of the best I have come across. I like all of the books by this author, with this paticular one being his best in my opinion. I like the content of the book as well as the narrarator's voice.

    "A bit disappointed"

    The teachings here I found to be less compelling than I expected. There are nuggets of wisdom, but somehow I didn't find here something that could change me spiritually. Tolle's "The Power of Now" and "New Earth", or Chopra's "7 Spiritual Laws" and "Synchrodestiny" are more enlightening.

    "Life changing..."

    I got this book on the recommendation of a friend and am absolutely thrilled that I did. If you can get through the first chapter which I found to be a little odd and confusing, the rest of the book is absolutely amazing. New ideas and concepts and by the end of the book the first chapter made complete sense.
    If more people in the world would choose to live their lives according to the four agreements, I think the world would be a much better place.

    My 10 year old daughter listened to this with me while traveling and still to this day talks about it and comes up with examples to explain concepts in this book! I highly recommend it!

    "Powerful yet simple truth!"

    No matte how many times I listen i never tire of his profound wisdom condensed and simplified. Following these agreements has the potential to solve all relationship issues and pave the way for experiencing heaven on earth. Destined to be a classic, this is one of my all time favorites

    "Listen to this more than once"

    I have listened to this three times--it goes quickly--and each time heard new things. The fact that we all have "agreements" about who we are resonated with me. Now that I am able to choose healthier agreements, it is liberating to recognize agreements decided for me when I was young. Worth listening to for anyone in the throes of self reflection.

    "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!

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "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.)

    "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.
