Publisher's Summary

In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

Don Miguel Ruiz has dedicated his life to sharing the wisdom of the ancient Toltec. For more than two decades, he has guided others toward their personal freedom. Today, he continues to combine his unique blend of ancient wisdom and modern-day awareness through journeys to sacred sites around the world.

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.

    Story
    "surprisingly good"
    What did you love best about The Four Agreements?

    When I started listening to this book, I had this deja vue feeling of: Here goes another self-help nothing special book.Was I in for a surprise! what started as yet another one of those books, turned out to be extremely interesting and enlightening. The book is very short and non- complex. This is its greatest virtue. You have to be an absolute genius to say so much in a few words and in a simple yet deep manner.I heartily recommend this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Extremely intelligent. An eye opener.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Coyote’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no

    Story
    "fantastic and logical"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    it put into words what I've been feeling for years. Its the essence of understanding the intangibility of who we are. Its reminds us (me) to be and have an awareness of life on a level of which we so easily get sucked into. Its similar to watching the movie of the movie and forgetting that you are separate from it.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Coyote’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, the Voice of Knowledge. It too is very good and takes the concept deeper.


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

    I learned about me. As long as I can stay aware of myself I can remain calm and happy. This is an exercise that I must practice everyday. Our mind like our body needs to be constantly directed and given focus.

    "Brilliant"

    Beautifully read, wonderful uplifting content. What more could one want. Even the most jaded and cynical of you won't fail to be captivated. Colonic irrigation for the soul!

    Story
    "Best Book I Ever Heard!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Four Agreements to be better than the print version?

    Personally I do not generally care for audio books, I get too distracted & find myself not paying attention. However, when this book was recommended to me, I had no time to read. So instead, I downloaded it to listen to in the morning on my way to work. I didn't want to stop. I finished it that day. For this particular book, I always tell people to listen, rather than read. Listening to the storytellers inflections & pauses really brings the message to life, more than I think just reading it in your head, which could possibly be boring.


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

    None that I have read, however i literally recommend this book to everyone I know. I was told about it by a co-worker who was helping mentor me through a difficult time at work. However, as soon as I read it, I was so moved, so excited by it's message I immediately rushed home & made all 3 of my teenagers/young adults listen to it & I recommend it to people all the time.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Coyote’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not, but I thought his voice was perfect for this book.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Four Agreements?

    Many, this book has basically become my new mantra. I had the four agreements written on like 3 different sticky notes, posted around my work area so that throughout the day I would stop & think about them & reflect how my day was going & remind myself to apply those rules to my responses. This book really changed my life & how I view or respond to the things that happen to me on a daily basis. It definitely made a difficult & stressful work environment much more tolerable.


    Any additional comments?

    READ THIS BOOK!
    Well actually JUST LISTEN!
    Trust me you will not regret it!

    "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.

    "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.

    "Couldn't stomach it"

    I thought this was going to be a self-help, kind of 'attitude-adjustment' book. Instead it began trying to inspire me due to the fact that the molecules in my body were once part of the stars. I lost patience with the author as he slid further and further down a silly metaphysical oratory hole and did not finish listening. I realize that may disqualify me as a reviewer, but is a statement on its own. I have not quit other Audible books and almost always tough it out to the end in reading.
    I doubt that anyone who has a science background will feel their money was well spent.

    "Secrets to life that all humanity & religions seems to lack."

    You know when you have that niggling feeling there must be more to life than the daily struggle with your emotions, beliefs and fogged vision of life that is perceived?
    Well this could be an opening to a life you always knew was there.
    No Self, No Problem 😊

    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.
