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)

    "Life changing!"

    Truly a life changer. The task of reframing limiting beliefs in my 40s is massive. This is clear, and freeing. Why should I feel guilt and obligation for wanting to escape the soul crushing opinions of my narcissistic parents and tyranny of my ex husband. This is simple and as old as creation. We are just ourselves and should feel free to be so.

    "Very new age but basic ideas are powerful."

    The four agreements, if followed will help you lead a happier life. The author fails to give solid strategies and just tells the reader over and over to not take things personally or to not make assumptions. It's very repetitive and the examples are simplistic, plus I found them hard to relate to. Prior to reading the book I watched YouTube clips on the four agreements and got just as much out of it.

    "the most important book I've ever read."

    this book quite literally set me free. It pulled down a veil and allowed me to see things as they are. If I could suggest one thing to you. Read the alchemist, then the millionaire next door, then this book followed by a short history of nearly everything. You'll have your world altered for the better

    "Incredible!!!"

    When I first started listening to this, I almost turned it off because it seemed way too "new age" (i.e., spiritual nonsense) for me. I am SO glad I didn't. After the first 2 minutes or so, this book is great. I think this book may have totally changed the way I look at the world. Basically, the author says life is a dream and the way you look at the world will determine if it is a nightmare or an incredible dream. However, rather than using nebulous clich?s like ?just think positive? or ?think big?, he explains how to do it in a much better way than I have ever heard. Some of it you need to take into context, in that, some of what he says might be interpreted as ?I can do no wrong? and ?the rest of the world is messed up but not me?. However, he really says don't beat yourself up over mistakes and just learn from them and move on. Also, he says that people can be way too judgmental (for various reasons which he explains) and you need to be cognizant of this before you accept what they say. Anyway, BUY THIS AUDIOBOOK!!! It is cheap and it could drastically change the way you look at the world. As an added bonus, Peter Coyote, the narrator, is excellent.

    "A better listen than a read"

    I've had this book for years but could not get past the first several pages. I tried it as an audio book with much more success. I truly appreciate this book and the lessons within. It's a good read, I reccommend it.

    "The Four Agreements"

    I am so glad I picked up this book! My life had fallen off track, lost in a huge slump of depression. The message in this book helped me rise above my own harsh criticism and stop being the victim. Now I focus on each day, being the very best I can be without judging myself, always striving to keep each of the very important four agreements.

    "Fantastic!"

    This book is written in very simple language, yet the teachings are profound. While the four agreements sound very simple, they are not easy to follow. However, just by paying a little attenton to information in this book can change your life. I highly recommend it!

    "One Of My Favorites"

    This is one of the few books that made me reevaulate some of my beliefs. I'm not a changed man after 1 listen, but the ideas and advice within this book really struck home for me. If you enjoyed "The Power of Now" by Ekhart Tolle, you probably won't be disappointed here.

    "Simple Concepts to live by..."

    This book is AMAZING. I began my spiritual quest after hearing about The Secret. I watched the movie and read the book. It seemed easy and attainable but I know that the Secret was not settling - I had to keep digging for knowledge.

    "Knowledge alone is not enough. Only with understanding can real application begin. And that will help bring you to the place you want to be."

    That quote applies directly to this book. The Four Agreements are straight forward and easily understood. Open your hearts and listen to Peter Coyote bring don Miguel's book to life! Enjoy and Good Luck on your quest for Knowledge and Understanding! Be blessed!

    "Making Promises to Ourselves"

    Our personal power is based on the agreements we make, and often we make those agreements to please others, rather than being true to ourselves. In doing so, we give away our personal power. The Four Agreements is about taking back our personal power by being authentic and by adhering to our true selves. The four agreements are: 1) Be impeccable in your word, 2) Don't take anything personally, 3) Don't make assumptions, and 4) Always do your best. While simple, these agreements are anything but easy. Ruiz encourages readers to practice these agreements everyday and forgive ourselves when we are not perfect. The effort is what's most important. This book is a quick read (or listen) and should be reread repeatedly if you truly desire to keep your agreements with yourself.

    "Wonderful"

    This is another wonderful book to add to your collection if you are on a spiritual journey. To hear "why" and "what" from a totally different and ancient culture echoing strongly the concepts/philosophies of Buddahism, Psychology, and etc, makes a powerful sense of why we are here, how our mind sets our reality or delusion, how our culture and family influences.

    "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.

    "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 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.

    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.
