New Nonfiction: The Toltec Art of Life and Death – Don Miguel Ruiz

Chances are you’ve heard of The Four Agreements. If you’re a bookseller, you definitely know it. Published in 1997 it has sold five million copies and continues to sell solidly week in and week out almost twenty years later. This new book incorporates Don Ruiz’s teachings with a personal spiritual journey he underwent during a nine-weeks-long coma after a near fatal heart attack.

“There’s a lot to chew on, as Ruiz switches between the parable-filled inward journey he took during his coma, his mother’s impressions of joining him there in that dream-state, and straightforward memories of family and students. Mirrors are a recurring theme in Ruiz’s work, and many images present a duality tailored to challenge ‘your entire belief system.’ Readers might find it difficult to follow Ruiz’s winding road to the truth, but will come away from this book with a deeper understanding of life’s complexities.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Another classic that will bring joy and enlightenment to the world.”
— Deepak Chopra

“Once again, Miguel Ruiz delivers the deepest truths in the most relevant ways…. [H]is poetry, his wisdom, and his depth are as profound as ever.”
— Marianne Williamson
