You`ve learned three chords: be flawless with words, don`t take anything personally and don`t make assumptions. But how can you integrate them into your life? By dedicating yourself to the fourth convention: always do your best. The first three chords will cause positive changes in your life, but it won`t be possible to master them if you don`t practice them as best you can. The book itself is awesome and I would definitely recommend it if you haven`t read the four chords. And I recommend it more than 4 chords, but seriously 80% of the book is one more of the same. So, in any case, one of them buys, but not both. A good continuation of the four total chords liked the two Great Work of Peter Coyote Thanks much of the book is a summary of the 4 chords that is nice to check, but is not fresh content. The 5th agreement, which I cannot spoil for those who do not know it, is a principle that I already apply in my life, and it is a good one, but it is one that should also apply to the teachings of this book and, in fact, to all the teachings. I enjoyed the book and I like the wisdom of it, but I found some of the assertions unreasonable and I found the application of the 5th Convention. As rules of life, the five agreements are valuable and worth a search for. I`m not sure on the part of enlargement on the 5th agreement which was really useful or valuable once you know what it is. It would probably have been helpful to take a deep leap into cognitive prejudice, because it is primarily that.
The biblical references/analogies and spiritual stories were a little repugnant to me, but did not nullifying the book`s message. 5/5.C`s amazing. I must say that Don Miguel Ruiz is currently my favorite writer in Spirituality/Philosophy/Self-Development. The four chords changed my life, and it`s a great sequel. These teachings and Toltec`s philosophy absolutely adore them. Great narrator, listen carefully. Of course, you propose to start with the 4 chords before reading this. Everyone wants to express their point of view by telling stories about their global experiences. But how do you know which of these stories is true? By committing to the fifth agreement to be skeptical. Imagine all the skills you`ve learned in your life.
