More in depth and alternate explanation of The Four Agreements along with a 5th agreement which I aspire to. Wonderful insight and a great help on my journey to sing Doe Rae Mi. Can't get enough of Don Miguel Ruiz ❤️ I look forward to reading the rest of his publications and to becoming the messenger of love, light, and truth that I know I'm here for. I would and have recommended this book to everyone

Great book.

Similar to Osho in terms of challenging your identification with who you think you are, but has a slightly more readable and friendly tone.

The movie Revolver pairs well with this.

This book is about everything but a fifth agreement.
If you're going to read something of this mentality,read the Four Agreaments and don't bother
with this one. I thought there was a lot of jumbo gumbo in this one.

Not quite all the way through the book as yet but it is great. It makes you sit back and take notice. It compounds everything you learn from the Four Agreements and re-establishes your understanding of them. As the book says it takes a while to live them but you really can. You forget one day, you go back to them again the next day and i feel better already.

I am a domestic violence counselor and I have used The Four Agreements for years. I know recommend The Fifth Agreement. It is a wonderful way to live and if one really makes these agreements on a daily basis, their life will be so much better and happier.

Awesome book, great wisdom that spoke to me, without the religious baggage. Humble, not preachy.
Don Miguel Jr came through town for a lecture, and impressed me with his authenticity, candor, directness.
I highly recommend it for anyone interested in making their way thru life with more mastery, and ease.

A tremendous book! It separates truth from lies in a simple way. The Toltec people were very wise yet simple people. This book has helped me immensely in my everyday living. If you are searching for a better way this is for you!

This book is probably OK for beginners to Spiritual Humanitarianism....I loved 'The Four Agreements' & thought this book might add another element to those first four---not so!!

Buy the Four Agreements---save your money on the Fifth....

While we have thought there can't be anything better to come after reading the four agreements, this book adds a totally new dynamic and dimension to those agreements. One of the most profound journeys I've yet taken.

A friend reccommended this book and I'm so glad that I bought it. I was going through an issue that was bothering me- one of the agreements. And it made so much sense to me. I find myself using this agreement all the time and it has helped me so much.

What a great complement to The Four Agreements! If only everyone could learn to accept and be full of hope and love! If everyone could love America and learn to spread inspiration instead of hate and anger! Maybe those protestors should read these books!!

The simplicity and beauty of the way this is written is very calming.we need frequent reminders that is simple and freeing to change your ind and your conditioning. Ot is a compliment to The Four Agreements, because it expands that understanding and practice , and the fifth agreement challenges us to reach further.

This book includes both a concise summary of The Four Agreements & introduction of the fifth agreement. I would recommend that you forego reading the "Four" book and jump to this. The "Four" is more tedious in how arguments are laid out, i.e., too wordy. I personally did not agree with his philosophy. They appear to be based on ideas which I don't agree: For example, we live in our virtual reality created by lies that are hooked to us in our upbringing. He tells us to create a new reality but doesn't offer practical guidance. I was looking for a book of spiritual arguments and instead found something that more closely resembles religious dogma

I have given The Four Agreements as gifts to college grads. I think this is a terrific synthesis for the person who has read and reread the 4 Agreements and is looking for that deeper insight or different view. This one hit home.

This is another absolutely sensational book by Don Miguel Ruiz.
I have purchased all of his books and read them cover to cover the day I get them.
The Toltec people are a wise people indeed.
The Fifth Agreement is a great read and if you don't already own The Four Agreements I highly
recommend that you do.
The Don Miguel Ruiz Books are life changing! I have seen changes in my life from reading and
then applying the principles in my own life, however don't just take my word for it, purchase his
books and make a real and lasting difference in your own lives. It is well WORTH it!

SO good. One of the best books I've ever ready. Effectively complements the Four Agreements and is a needed buffer between the power of the Four Agreements and the greatness of the 5 levels of attachment.

The four agreements is an excellent book love it thoroughly. This book is, at best, okay...
Sometimes an author only has one good book and one good idea. Unfortunately, sometimes authors and publisher can't help but try to repeat a success.
I bought this book based on my enthusiasm for the Four Agreements, I was unfortunately, disappointed.

If you have read the four agreements and found it enlightening then you will love the fifth agreement. It is a much faster read than the four agreements, not so many concepts to wrap your head around. Very good!

"The Fifth Agreement" is the sequel to "The Four Agreements," which outlines a simple foundation for a happy life that anyone can implement regardless of one's religion or lack of one. They convey the core of the Toltec shamanic tradition in a nutshell: Be impeccable with your word; don't take things personally; don't make assumptions; and do your best.

Don Miguel Ruiz wrote that bestseller 12 years ago, and now has written "The Fifth Agreement" with his son, don Jose. The fifth agreement is deceptively simple, yet incredibly profound. It states, "Be skeptical but learn to listen." While the first four agreements deal with our relationship to ourselves and how to create a happy life, the fifth agreement deals with our relationship to others, and how to create a better world.

"The Fifth Agreement" asks us to be skeptical and use discernment when listening others, and to understand that everyone has his or her own perspective and agenda reflected in their words. It is up to us to discern the truth behind the words, but always to be respectful of another's right to his or her views, even if we don't share them. Each of us is the artist of our own life, the director of our own play, and we can make it an adventure or a drama - heaven or hell, it's up to us.

The first part of the book reviews the first four agreements, discussing how the meanings we attribute to symbols define us culturally. The second part of the book delves into the more advanced concepts of the Toltec mystery school, including the Fifth Agreement, Victims, Warriors, Masters and Seers. All the concepts are explained in ways that anyone can understand and, hopefully, implement in one's life.

I had the opportunity to ask don Miguel in an interview for New Consciousness Review why he didn't include the fifth agreement in his first book. He said, "It wasn't the time." The fact that he decided that it is now the time, implies that we are finally ready as a society to learn to listen to each other and to respect our differences. Combined with the prescription for living joyfully offered by the Four Agreements, we really could have heaven on earth. This powerful little book shows the way, and makes it all sound possible.

I like it!
I don't have 13 words to say & I don't see why its mandatory to have a lot to say about MY purchases ~ either I like it or don't like it ~ why do I have to write a book? why don't you simply put a brief description in the headliner or summary ~ you should be trying to make it easier for clients to want to leave feedback ~ this is to much work!

The Four Agreements along with all the other books written by Don Miguel Ruiz have elevated everyone I have passed them on to. These books have done amazing things for my life. And now to continue to strive for true happiness and freedom along comes The Fifth Agreement. This book is well beyond worth the read, and once you've done that pass it on!!!

I believe this is great, yet so-so. I did not find what I needed here, though someone may. That's me. I'll continue to read until the end of the book, but I've also reached in other directions to hunt ways to get what I need from a self-help book, warriorship or not! Nothing personal towards the author, nothing ventured, nothing gained.Slightly worthwhile, though risky read.

Everyone seems to want to tell the world that everything they thought was real is fiction. The fifth agreement is to be skeptical. For people who are already skeptical this book covers the same well worn path that teaches anyone that the "world is not as you see it."

The fifth agreement is a good book but my disappointment was that 40% of the book was a repeat of the Fourth Agreement. If you never read the Fourth Agreement it would be an excellent buy would encourage it. It is still an informative book.

the four agreements is one of the best books of Don Miguel Ruiz that one book can help the reader to open the eyes of their soul and start enjoying and live life to the fullest it awakes you to not to suppress death because it's a reality we must enjoy life while it lasts and the books of the 4 agreements will help you to open your eyes before it is too late ..

I got the CD the 4 agreements because I felt like I needed to listen to it again after all these years. Strangely enough it just doesn't really apply for me anymore.... I never even got around to listening to the fifth agreement

I was very disappointed to discover that this was just a summary of all of Don Miguel Ruiz's previous books, all of which I have read. If you haven't read them then I would say that this is a "Cliff's Notes" version and is worth your time. If you have read his prior books, reread them and don't waste your time with this one.

This is a wonderful book that can change anyone's life with its simple wisdom. It does go over The Four Agreements, but it isn't repetitive. Instead, it adds depth to the first four and adds an additional agreement which works well with the rest. This is a book for people who want to have a peaceful, happy, loving life. The profoundness of it is in its simplicity. It is not religious, nor do you have to do anything special except to look at people, experiences and circumstances with a different perspective. Not only is it life changing, but if everyone read this book and tried a little each day to practice the agreements, it would be world changing.

Where does real freedom, real happiness starts? In our mind. The Toltec wisdom that Don Miguel Ruiz, the author, explains, is about how we get over our domestication and free ourselves. We are all perfect, or in the words of the author: "Everything about us is perfect, including any disability or disease that we may have." Because you are what you believe you are! What if we are enough, as we are, and the voice in our head tells us lies all day long. Lies that we are not enough, not slim enough, not good enough, not pretty enough, etc.? The tools to help us free ourselves are the 5 agreements. They are:
1. Be impeccable with your word.
2. Don't take anything personally.
3. Don't make assumptions.
4. Always do your best.
5. Be skeptical, but learn to listen.
Compared with the book The Four Agreements by the same author, this book repeats The 4 Agreements in a short way. But I highly recommend to read both books and to read the book The Four Agreements first.

This is a wonderful book. Although there is some repeat of information from Ruiz's book "The Four Agreements," there is also a lot of new and very insightful content. In particular, I got the sense that Don Miguel Ruiz's son Don Jose, and the other co-author, Janet Mills, brought another dimension to the work that clearly added value to the book. As such, I highly recommend The Fifth Agreement as a spiritual growth resource. Here's one of my favorite passages:

"Let's say you're living with guilt and shame for a mistake you made ten years ago. The excuse for your suffering is, "I made a terrible mistake," and you're still suffering for something that happened ten years ago, but the truth is you're suffering from something that happened ten seconds ago. You judged yourself again for the same mistake, and of course the big judge says, "You need to be punished." It's simple action-reaction. The action is self-judgment; the reaction is self punishment in the form of guilt and shame. All your life you repeat the same action, hoping to have a different reaction, and it never happens. The only way to change your life is to change the action, and then the reaction will change."

More than a month ago, I read this book, and since then, I've posted more quotes from this book on Facebook than I have of any other author. This book is that good.

Like the "The Four Agreements, this book takes readers on a journey from a position of really knowing the human condition. "The Four Agreements" guide readers to: 1. Be impeccable with their word (integrity & power words); 2. Separate who and what others do from your characterizations of them; 3. Get clarity from your interlocutors; and, 4. Not only do your best, but more importantly, let having done your best be enough.

In "The Fifth Agreement," Don Miguel Ruiz explores each of the 4 agreements more deeply, so that readers can travel further on their journey to be more present. And, the Fifth Agreement really asks you to step into your interlocutors' shoes to see his/her message through their eyes, to respond to them in a way that accepts their reality, while you keep who you are as a separate, yet respecting and appreciative being.

I like this book, because it takes me to a deeper place in my psyche.

I just really didn't see how there really could be a sequel to The Four Agreements, as the Four Agreements was so great in itself and just really didn't need any kind of follow up. I was given this book as a gift and I thought maybe it was just going to be partially pointless to read. But I was pleasantly very incorrect. This book is beautiful, it rips away any remaining ego and just gets down the real Source. Very raw. Nothing left but bliss. Thank you, Don Miguel Ruiz, for being a messenger of truth and taking action in making the world a better place.

The Fifth Agreement by Don Miguel Ruiz is a great sequel to his previous text The Four Agreements. If you enjoyed the latter and got a lot of spiritual empowerment from it, then The Fifth Agreement will add to that. Finding Your Voice is the concept espoused by Ruiz in this book as he adds it to his previous four agreements (which including always doing your best and not taking anything personally). The Fifth Agreement when properly applied and understood will give you increased joy and empowerment in your life.

Many years ago I read Ruiz's "The Four Agreements, A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom". I was so impressed by the simple, but deep wisdom of the Four Agreements that I sent copies to each of my twenty-some children. I think they received them much as anything of this sort is received from a parent.

A friend recently gave me a copy of The Fifth Agreement. I wondered why they put out another one as the first seemed enough for a lifetime, but it did not take me long to understand.

The first part of the book is a revisiting of the Four Agreements. Like a lot of things in life it never hurts to back over the basics. The Four Agreements are essentially the foundation for the Fifth Agreement.

Again the book is simple yet profound. None of the Five Agreements is something we do not know about. The trick is remembering them and living them.

For me, at least, the book is best read in multiple sessions. I read each chapter as meditation. Like a meditation each chapter can be read again.

The book is spiritual, but not religious. It embraces and rejects religion all at the same time. At least that is my dream of how it read.

As I read the book, I could not help but see the confluence of Buddhism ant Toltec wisdom. Is it surprising, or is not surprising that similar concepts / wisdom developed at different times in different cultures.

The next question is why do I say this? Both approaches emphasize being in the moment. Impeccable speech strikes me as Right Conduct, Right Livelihood, and Right Thought in the Buddhist tradition. They phrase it differently, but they both address quieting the clattering monkey mind.

There is a comment towards the end of the book about life is not about suffering, but that life is to be enjoyed. I don't know if this is a swipe at the Buddha's primary premise or not. I do think for a vast number of folks life is suffering. Buddha said that when we let go of our attachments this suffering diminishes or goes away. Then life can be enjoyed (my words). I do not feel that is that far away from the letting go of the symbols we hold so dearly that may be feeding us lies.

My take on it is that it is two different set of symbols, but they end up in the same place

Simple wisdom for complex times.

I purchased this book to follow up The Four Agreements (a favorite of mine) and after 9 chapters I'm finding it hard to want to finish.

Unlike, the first book there is a lot of rambling and circling around the point/concept. The first book was very straightforward without having to over explain the point because it was so clearly written. It seemed like he was reaching for things to say during a lot of the book just to fill space. This book should be half the size and half the amount of time to read.

Marketing strategy to get more money. Dah, here you go falling for the book that is a repeat of the four agreements, with one more message to make 5. The author reels in more money, while we sit and say, I already read this stuff in the four agreements!
Please agree not to buy the 6th agreement because he will be sure to come out with it soon!

mitch pendleton
The fifth agreement isn't an impressive book in my opinion. It continually repeats itself, and espouses common ideas in common ways, thereby taking one where they started.

In short he says - be a skeptic but don't believe thoughts that are negative.
- create your own reality but make sure you aren't believing unreality.
- symbology that exists can be destructive, but lets create a new dream together as a world.

In short, contradictory. I understand there is nuance to these ideas but overall I don't find it a phenomenal book. Best of luck!

golnoush mstfv
I just got through chapter 5 of this book and I kinda want to yell "Okay, I got it. The true me is The Truth and my words, thoughts and symbology are magical, just please don't give me another example for that point." I guess I should've know that a whole book for one more agreement was going to be repetitive. Sequels often lack the original inspiration of the first book, this one is no exception.

This is a must read. If you haven't read The Four Agreements, you'll get an overview of them in this book, though it's not the same as reading The Four Agreements itself. The Fifth Agreement is so very powerful. I read it once and then again and I will read it again - it's just that good. Each time you "get" something else of importance that really clicks within you. It surely would be a much more peaceful, calm and joyful world if everyone not just read this book, but lived it. It is life transforming!!!!

I picked up this book on the recommendation of a friend who knew I was studying the Tao. There are very similar concepts in both studies, but I find the study of the Tao more satisfying because, I think, it is less preachy than this book was.

I think if the time has arrived where you feel the need to change your thinking and the way you see life, this is a good book with which to begin the journey. However, it should not be the end of your journey.

I am reading this book for the second time. I can see myself reading this book over and over again to get more of the message that I might have missed the last time I read it.

I wanted to go out and buy everyone a copy of this book - that's how much I love it and the message that it has. But I strongly believe that everyone should first read the Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz's first book. If people get the message of that book, then they should read the Fifth Agreement. As you can see by the reviews, not everyone will understand the message of both or either book. As Don Miguel says in the beginning of the Fifth Agreement, he found that his apprentices didn't understand the fifth agreement when he originally tried to teach it to them, even though they all understood the first four agreements. I believe that some of us are ready for all 5 agreements, I wish everyone was ready for them.

So instead of going out and buying people books that they may not be ready for, I will be an example for everyone in my life. And if they want to discover what I have discovered, I will lead them to The Four Agreements.

If you are tired of suffering, tired of the drama, tired of feeling lost, confused, or overwhelmed, then you should pick up a copy of The Four Agreements and if you love the message, then get The Fifth Agreement. It is ready and waiting for you. If you want to change your life, to be happy every day of your life, then it is time for you to read the Four Agreements and then the Fifth Agreement.

There's no question asking feature on this product. I'm curious, this sounds very similar to the third agreement- don't make assumptions. I'm curious if you would agree. Don't assume that what you are being told is correct... Also- No paperback?? Thanks!

This is the follow on that puts the FOUR AGREEMENTS in perfect balance. A mix of old and new scenarios 're enforces one's knowledge that allows us to put our personal journey very much in focus. To understand this book you must first begin at the FOUR AGREEMENTS. THANK YOU TO YOU ALL.

Follow on to The 4 Agreements (1- Be impeccable with your word 2-Don't take things personally. 3- Don't assume 4- Do your best).

the 5th agreement takes you deeper into the 4 agreements & then adds a layer of the need to be skeptical as a way to notice the many cultural and societal stories ingrained in us and created even innocently by our own minds. By debunking myths that do not serve, we move toward self mastery and ultimately, happiness. And who doesn't want that?

I had the honor to have both Don Miguel Ruiz and his son Don Jose Ruis on my LifeBites radio show last month. In their book, The "Fifth Agreement," both do a great job in talking to people about discerning the truth. So much of what we are taught from the time we are small to adulthood is programmed into us; we become like robots just executing what we have been taught to believe is the truth. Their work is much needed on the planet today. "The Fifth Agreement" is a great book for those of you who have read the popular "Four Agreements." It expands the lessons and allows us all to go a little deeper! [...]

For those who have noticed that one's person's truth seems to be another's lie. If you are like me, then you have become confused by this notion and wondered whether there is a Truth that is common to us all and how to align one's self to this Truth. Perhaps you have been connected to this Truth and realized that it, in fact, lies within you. Then perhaps you have come to the realization that this authentic Self which is an embodiment of the Truth is not so easy to unfold as it is covered by layers and layers of spoon fed beliefs and conventional assumptions since childhood. Often these beliefs and assumptions conflict with each other, giving rise to a nagging doubts about what is real or imagined, even concerning our very self. Perhaps we have once had an elusive sense of understanding during which we have felt what life could be and truly is, but from lack of being able to conceptualize it, we have forgotten its substance and lost the living creative power of this inner knowledge. For a subject as complex and daunting as the very nature of reality as we know it, and the role our beliefs (or owned assumptions) play in shaping our own reality, "The Fifth Agreement" does a great job in explaining it all. Furthermore this sequel to "The Four Agreements" promises a Fifth Agreement which, although more abstruse then the preceding four, has the potential of guiding us towards finding who we really are (Our Authentic Self) in all the perfection of our "imperfect" individual Self.

To fully comprehend the deeper meaning of this seemingly simple agreement will present you with a gift that is not to be found the like of anywhere in the world.

Truth, Don Miguel explains, does not need you to believe in it in order to be truth. But your mind and everyone else's minds are full of lies. And, unlike truth, all those lies need you to believe in them in order for them to survive. For if you do not believe yourself, and don't believe anybody else, but you learn to listen...all those lies will not survive your scepticism, and all that will be left is truth.

That is what these teachings can offer.

If enough people read this book, the world would change for the better literally overnight! I've read most of Don Miguel Ruiz's books; this is my hands-down favorite (Four Agreements and Prayers equally close seconds). Each reading will bring more understanding and awareness...and a happier, more peaceful life, guaranteed!
