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 (http://paulocoelhoblog.com), Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Paulo-Coelho/11777366210), Twitter (https://twitter.com/paulocoelho) & Instagram (http://instagram.com/alkmist), among others. He is equally present in media sharing sites such as Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=paulabraconnot) and Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulo_coelho/sets) , offering on a regular basis not only texts but also videos and pictures to his readers.

La noche que agarré este libro no pude soltarlo hasta que mis ojos leyeron la última oración. Es un libro que describe la simpleza de la vida, y los sentimientos que a todos nos inundan más de una vez. Paulo Coelho describe estas cosas, junto con la importancia de seguir adelante y luchar por nuestros sueños, con una pureza indescriptible, una pureza que te llena y te contagia de esas ganas de vivir, de abrirte a las cosas más importantes que te da la vida. El dice que cuando una persona quiere realmente algo el univerzo entero conspira para que pueda realizar su sueño, lo que no quiere decir que todo va a venir de arriba, sino que tenés que luchar, pero que al final va a valer la pena, porque no solo vas a cumplir tu sueño, sino que vas a llevarte la satifacción de haerlo hecho y lo aprendido por el camino. Paula de Ezcurra, 16 años.

Este libro lo lei cuando estaba en una crucijada personal y espiritual en mi vida. Lo he leido en el original, en portugues, tambien en espanol y en ingles. Me hizo examinar mi propia vida de una forma que nunca antes habia considerado y me ayudo encontrar las fuerzas para tomar unas decisiones para cambiar el camino en que iba mi vida. Hoy en dia es un libro que aun recomiendo para todos-amigos y estudiantes. Desde la primera vez que lo lei, lo he regalado a unos 20 de mis estudiantes para su graduacion del colegio. Lo recomiendo para todo el mundo, no importa si es cristiano, judio, musulman, porque tiene lecciones valiosas para todos nosotros.

Format: Paperback
Maravilloso!!! Este libro me ha cambiado la perspectiva en la vida.Desde que lo leí me he propuesto, dentro de lo que cabe, a hacer lo posible por llevar a cabo mi "historia personal". Es algo así como "el pequeño príncipe", una historia sencilla con un vocabulario simple, pero con mucho corazón, que a su vez encierra la clave para una vida plena y feliz. Perfecto para quien necesite un cambio refrescante en su vida y todavía no ha hallado el valor para cambiarla.

Format: Paperback
Un libro que deberia ser parte del curriculum de todas las escuelas del mundo. Un libro que te da el animo de seguir tus suenos y ideales. Un libro que te inspira. No, este no es un libro de como y cuando hacer las cosas y tu suenos. Este libro contiene una historia que te hace identificar con el protagonista, y sientes que las aventuras que el tiene, o le han pasado son muy similares a las de uno. y cuando uno leer el como el supera estas cosas, uno se pone a pensar que si uno hiciera lo mismo, tambien saldria adelante en la vida. no como un milloniario sino como una persona que tiene lo que busca en la vida... por que todo tiene un por que. Bueno, pues les rocomiendo este libro. pues fue un libro que me fue regalado y ahora les comparto. este libro recibe mas de 5 estrellas.

Format: Paperback
Este libro, de prosa tan sencilla y profunda, nos ense~na que nuestros sue~nos si pueden llegar a ser una realidad. Eso nos demuestra Santiago, que una noche tuvo un sue~no e hizo hasta lo imposible, se enfrento y supero cuanto obstaculo se le presento en el camino, y siguio las se~nales para llegar a su meta. Coelho tiene la capacidad de llegar a lo mas profundo de nuestra alma con un libro tan simple como este. Lo recomiendo a todos aquellos que tienen un sue~no y no saben por donde empezar ni que camino seguir.

Format: Paperback
Este libro, es simplemente uno de los mejores que he leido en mi vida. Y se lo recomiendo a todos. Este libro marco mi vida en tantos sentidos, y fue el que abrio el paso a la lectura de otros libros de este gran autor Paulo Coelho, como A orrillas Del Rio Piedra me sente y Llore y Veronika Decide Morir, Las Valkirias y todos los demas que el ha escrito. Recomiendo leer este libro antes que cualquien otro de Paulo Coelho, es un muy buen comienzo para entender los demas, inclusive El peregrino de Compostela que fuel el primero escrito por este autor. Con el alquimista aprendi a soñar, y mas importante aun aprendi a crecer... a creer en mi misma, a trasarme metas no solo laborales si no espirituales.... creci mucho espiritualmente, y como diria la esposa de el mismo en el libro Las Valkirias, mi espiritu se expandio... aprendi a ver mas alla del horizonte. Aprende tu tambien con este libro! pero que no sea el unico! Aprende a conoserte mejor a ti mismo y a cumplir tus metas. Y has los ejercicios que es muy, muy importante. Con mucho gusto compartire mis opiniones y mis triunfos acerca de este y otros libros. Maktub!

Format: Paperback
It is a terrific book about a boy who gave up his sheep and searched the treasure in his dreams. Along the journey, he met a lot of people, some helped him; others were mean. But he persisted to find the one universal language,and listened to his heart. He went through a lot of trials and unexpected situations. I admired his courage and faith. The story is mysterious and I recommend it to all my friends!

Todos tenemos nuestra historia personal por realizar, y este libro nos enseña que en ocasiones los obstaculos nos hacen perder el sueño, sin embargo si dios nos lo puso en nuestra mente es porque sabe que somos capaces de realizarlos, gracias por este libro . eucarisp@cantv.net
