A large part 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. Having already enjoyed the four chords, I was very happy to hear the fifth, so much so that I am about to reread it and I am positive that everything I have learned will help me in my journey, I already feel happier 😁 thanks to the author! And I highly recommend this book! «I found the ideas in this book a repetition of the ideas in «The Fourth Agreement «. I liked the fourth chord, but I was looking for something new in this book so I was disappointed. «I couldn`t survive the first two chapters of this book. It`s so repetitive that it drove me crazy. It seems that there is an idea in the book and this is repeated endlessly in different ways ad nauseum.
The idea is not even original. Very disappointing, because I liked «the four chords» of the same author. It`s really boring. «Like one of my favorite books, «The Four Agreements» said it all. There were some good concepts that were discussed in this book, but they would have been better included in a separate book of the excellent «championship of love», unlike this poorly executed attempt to classify them as a 5th chord. «The fifth agreement has a positive message. Lots of layoffs and rehearsals, but maybe we need that to hear and internalize the message? For me, the four agreements have been taken to a deeper level. «If you had read the four chords, you might not find his book as illuminating, but still a good read.» A good continuation of the four agreements Total liked the two Great Works of Peter Coyote Thanks To Mr. Ruiz and his son did an extraordinary job on the continuation of the agreements.
I love these books and the great work that Peter Koyote does with storytelling. Everyone should own all these books. They are concise, easy to understand and will change as you look!! Consciousness!!!!! «All of Don Miguel`s work is a gem and it`s no different, an extension of The Four Agreements.
