The Four Agreements: Keys to Transforming Entertainment and Media
Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a humble family in rural Mexico, the youngest of 13 children. His family believed that Miguel would continue their ancient Toltec tradition; instead Don Miguel attended medical school and became a surgeon.
While practicing neurosurgery, Don Miguel realized that what needed to be healed was not only the physical brain but the human mind as well. He returned to his family traditions and became a shaman.
Don Miguel has combined old wisdom with modern insights and created a new message for all mankind, based in truth and common sense. He has dedicated his life to sharing his message through practical concepts that promote transformation. His message is simple yet deeply profound, and when implemented, even incrementally, changes lives.
The Four Agreements®, published in 1997, was a New York Times bestseller for more than seven years, and the 36th bestselling book of the decade. Other books are: The Mastery of Love, The Voice of Knowledge, Prayers, Beyond Fear, and The Fifth Agreement, with his son Don Jose, all international bestsellers.
