Publisher's Summary

In The Four Agreements, a New York Times best seller for over seven years, don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or “domestication,” can make us forget the wisdom we were born with. Throughout our lives, we make many agreements that go against ourselves and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements help us to break these self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness, and love. Now don Miguel Ruiz joins his son don Jose Ruiz to offer a fresh perspective on the Four Agreements, and a powerful new agreement for transforming our lives into our personal heaven: the fifth agreement. The Fifth Agreement takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the Self, and returns us to the authenticity we were born with. In this compelling sequel to the book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are.

Fantastic! The next evolution of the toltec wisdom

This book is not just a review of the four agreements plus the fifth. It IS a re-statement of the first four agreements, but in much more detail and in more common language. I first became aware of the Toltec wisdom through Carlos Castaneda's series "the teachings of Don juan..." and they were impressive yet they seemed a distant unreachable wisdom in some far off world/ time shrouded in mystery etc. Then Merylin Tenneshende's book "Don Juan and the art of sexual energy" took the next step toward making the wisdom more tangible for the masses.

then Don Miguel Ruiz released "The four agreements" and it rose to great popularity in its profound power to help people transform their lives. It has served many people to such a transformations. It is a MUST READ in it's own right.

And now...

This new book "The fifth agreement..." is a crowning achievement of the Ruiz family to bring this level of clear communication of these Toltec teachings for everyone to reach. It speaks the teachings in such concise, direct, plain language using a wonderfully contemporary style.

Excellent! (Speaking impeccably) Totally worth it in my opinion!

A more robust "chicken soup' for your SOUL*

It's very good to read books from people who have the patience and discipline to write/share about matters of the heart, soul and spirit of living in/of which you are simpatico. Although this is a sequel to The 4 Agreements, it is NOT necessary to read the previous title. As all areas are covered within these pages/chapters.
The pros of the audiobook format is perfect for this genre of books/authors 1. you can bookmark certain sections that are significant and replay them during the times you might need to hear them. 2. Miguel's universal prayers are always good to have on tap during trying times.
Peter Coyote voice is heartfelt. It's very important that the voice reflects the author and his point of view/prespective especially in this genre. ONE of my FAVE-st authors!
