More About the Author

The Brazilian author PAULO COELHO is considered one of the most influential authors of our times. His books have sold more than 150 million copies worldwide, have been released in 170 countries and been translated into 80 languages.

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, he soon discovered his vocation for writing. He worked as a director, theater actor, songwriter and journalist. His collaboration with Brazilian composer and singer Raúl Seixas gave some of the greatest classic rock songs in Brazil. In 1986, a special meeting led him to make the pilgrimage to Saint James Compostela (in Spain). The Road to Santiago was not only a common pilgrimage but a turning point in his existence. A year later, he wrote 'The Pilgrimage', an autobiographical novel that is considered the beginning of his career.

In the following year, COELHO published 'The Alchemist'. Slow initial sales convinced his first publisher to drop the novel, but it went on to become one of the best selling Brazilian books of all time.

Other titles include 'Brida' (1990), 'The Valkyries' (1992), 'By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept' (1994), the collection of his best columns published in the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo entitle 'Maktub' (1994), the compilation of texts 'Phrases' (1995), 'The Fifth Mountain' (1996), 'Manual of a Warrior of Light' (1997), 'Veronika decides to die' (1998), 'The Devil and Miss Prym' (2000), the compilation of traditional tales in 'Stories for parents, children and grandchildren' (2001), 'Eleven Minutes' (2003), 'The Zahir' (2005), 'Like the Flowing River' (2006), 'The Witch of Portobello' (2006), 'The Winner Stands Alone' (2008), 'Aleph' (2010) and 'Manuscript found in Accra' (2012).

He has received numerous prestigious international awards. He is member of the Academy of Letters of Brazil since 2002 and Messenger of Peace by the United Nations since 2007. In 2009 he received the Guinness World Record for the most translated author for the same book (The Alchemist).

The man behind the author likes to write and practices Kyudo - a meditative archery. He loves reading, walking, football and computers. In that sense, he has always maintained a close contact with his readers but now, and thanks to the new media, he has established an incredible feedback with them. Paulo was the second most influential celebrity on Twitter in 2010 according to Forbes and he is the writer with the highest number of followers in the social media.

In the past years Paulo Coelho has expanded his presence in the internet with his daily blogs in Wordpress (, Facebook (, Twitter ( & Instagram (, among others. He is equally present in media sharing sites such as Youtube ( and Flickr ( , offering on a regular basis not only texts but also videos and pictures to his readers.

AMOR, por el autor brasileno Paulo Coelho, consiste de citas publicadas en columnas periodisticas y libros - como Brida, El Alquimista, Once minutos, El Zahir, A orillas del rio Pedra......, La bruja de Portobello, y otros - por el mismo autor. La obra tambien incluye dibujos por Catalina Estrada. Tiene 128 paginas con ocho capitulos cuyos titulos son Dadiva, Transformacion, Superacion, Solidaridad, Afinidad, Busqueda, El arte de convivir, Grandeza.

Como el titulo sugiere, las citas hablan de amor y algunas son muy profundas. Por ejemplo, "Todos formamos parte de la chispa divina. Todos tenemos un proposito en la creacion, llamado amor". O, "Quando conocemos a alguien y nos enamoramos, tenemos la impresion que todo el mundo esta` de acuerdo". O, "Tuve que perderla para entender que el sabor de las cosas recuperadas es la miel mas dulce que podemos probar". O"No hay amor en paz...........(El amor) siempre va acompanado de agonias, extasis, alegrias intensas y tristezas profundas". O, "En el amor esta' la semilla de nuestro crecimiento. Cuando mas amamos, mas cerca estamos de la esperiencia espiritual". O "Si conoces el amor, conoces tambien el alma del mundo, que esta' hecha de amor".

Los dibujos por Catalina Estrada son de flores, aves, corazones, con algunas caras de mujeres. Son simetricos (lo que sugiere el uso del ordenador), tienen colores muy brillantes, y son tan lindos que a veces atraen la atencion del lector mas que las citas. Se podrian mirar por largos tiempos sin cansarse.

AMOR por Paulo Coelho es un libro para conoscerse a uno mismo, y tambien para descubrir el "alma del mundo".

El libro es pequeno (11 ½x18 ½ cm), y tiene tapa dura con una cintita roja por marcador. Es el regalo perfecto para un novio, mejor todavia, para una novia

This is a beautiful gift for a Cohelo fan. I gave it to my aunt and she simply adored it. I'm tempted to buy one for me too.
