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)

    "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.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Recommended at a professional seminar..."

    STORY (personal development) - So I was at a day-long seminar listening to boring professional stuff presented by various speakers. Then a woman came to the podium to speak. She was radiant and exuded personal acceptance and joy. She recommended this book, so I decided to check it out.

    The book is pretty "deep," but it presents some simple, worthwhile principles to live by. It is based on ancient Toltec philosophy and religion, but the teachings are timeless and valid today. Some of it is commonsense stuff that is presented in a different light that will make you think. There is some coverage of God and religion, but the book is more about setting yourself emotionally free from personal baggage and beliefs that keep you from becoming the best and happiest person you can be.

    PERFORMANCE - Peter Coyote (yes, the actor) reads the book and does a great job, although his talents are somewhat wasted reading a non-emotional, informative text. There is also flute music.

    OVERALL - Enjoyable and informative with good reminders of things to work on. Not a must-hear, but it is worth the sale price and the short time I spent listening. Unfortunately, I haven't been transformed into a radiant personality like the speaker at the seminar....

    "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.

    "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.

    "Brainwash"

    Brainwash. Spirituality has become the new propaganda tool.

    I only need to cite this:
    "So you can be in a blissful state in hell." You are NOT meant to be blissful in hell! This is how you make slaves ok with being in hell or suffer

    "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!

    "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.

    "Preachy non sense."

    This book was recommended by my boss. But I am not a depressed person searching for life's answers. If you are on the brink of suicide listen to this. If you want statements supported by evidence look else where. The author makes wild statements and doesn't back them up with anything.

    "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.
