Although the content and arrangements are useful and relevant to the 21st century, I had the impression that there were many very religious and supra-spiritual elements in the stories. I was a little skeptical, but I really enjoyed hearing this audiobook. There is no particular religious bias towards doctrine, but it was interesting and quite sensible. It is an audiobook that I will hear one day. The two stars are not for the content of the book, or the presentation of it. Peter Coyote is doing a really amazing job with this book, and I really appreciate Don Miguel Ruiz. However, there are no chapter markers in this audiobook. This makes it really difficult to access certain parts of the book for a simple reference. You just need to clean it up, and maybe you`ll find the place you were looking for.
Great restriction, and completely takes the benchmark of this purchase. I am not sure who is guilty of this issue. My recommendation is to buy the physical audiobook that will most likely have chapter markers. I think I`m on my way to my local new-age store. To health. the concept is simple, the four chords are understandable, the results are undeniable… However, the disciplined practice of consciousness and action is a monumental challenge… not because it is complicated, but monumental to achieve, because it requires a complete description of your deepest thoughts and actions. The constant presence of the mind and continuous concentration will begin to unravel the lifespan of the unhealthy conditioning with which we all felt comfortable. This is a brilliant book with an excellent audio edition. It describes four simple agreements that you must make with yourself, which will allow you to increase your control over how you live your life: 1) Be immaculate with your word; 2) Don`t take anything personally; 3) Don`t make assumptions; 4) Always do your best. Easy doesn`t mean easy! Don Miguel`s book helps the reader to have the power of these chords and to use it.
Reading Peter Coyotes is a pleasure that supports the learning process. It is a timeless work that can be constantly recalled. I found the four chords even more powerful than Stephen Coveys Seven Habits, which speaks volumes. And just like the seven habits, the four chords are powerful in all aspects of your life, including family, work and recreation. This book is a bit “woo woo”, not bashing at all, but I could see how hard parts of it are to get through for someone who is not in trouble. The basis of the four agreements is strong and so important. Beyond the new old woo woo tone of the book are four tenants who are so important and important to succeed personally and professionally. The four chords are simple and easy to follow and will serve you well in life. Don Miguel Ruiz`s famous guide to personal freedom is an inspiring and motivating reading in itself. But the voice of actor Peter Coyote`s Dulcet takes These ancient Toltec teachings to another level and transforms them into a fascinating four-part guided meditation. The Four Agreements establishes philosophical concepts in concrete and real situations and explores the benefits of being impeccable with your word, taking nothing personally, not making assumptions and always doing your best.
