I'm not sure I buy into the ancient Toltec wisdom aspect of this book, but The Fifth Agreement offers a cogent explanation for the misperception of reality, disconnect from Truth and endemic self-hate that is rampant in America today. This father-son team of authors builds upon the father's book The Four Agreements to offer a way out of the house of mirrors that is our society and into contact with reality and Truth and love of others and self. I read it several times, slowly and meditatively, in 2010 and have recommended it to a little book club of which I am a member. It's one of those books I would love to pass on to everyone I know. The movie theater analogy on pp. 48-54 alone is worth the price of the book and the time spent reading it. By all means buy this book and dream a happier dream for yourself and your world in 2011.

Creating Your Personal Heaven
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 (see it at ncreview.com) why he didn’t include the fifth agreement in his first book, and 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.
