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.

Existen algunos libros interesantes, otros que van más allá, son buenos, pero hay algunos como este que son impactantes, son de esos que dejan huella en el corazón de los hombres. El Peregrino de Compostela es un libro que debe ser leído por todos aquellos que viven del reto, por aquellos que a veces puden sentir que la lucha es inutil y demasiado dolorosa, es excelente para jóvenes de 18 a 99 años que quieren revitalizar su alma. Felicitaciones al autor.

Para quienes nos gusta mucho el leer acerca de los temas de superación y a la vez saber que todos formamos parte de un todo, el libro es buenisimo.
Haces mucha introspección y a la vez no te das golpes de pecho asumiendo falsas modestias religiosas, te hace sentir que nuestro compromiso es dar todo en tu familia, tu trabajo, tus amigos y con la vida en general (que asi deberia ser siempre).

Novela sencilla e interesante de esta famosa peregrinacion que muchos hacen entre Francia y Espana, en este caso el protagonista se hace acompanar de un gran maestro que le va ensenado a travez de experiencias sencillas, caminos " misticos" que el otro poco a poco va asimilando hasta llegar a una prueva final para ver si realmente aprendio a encontrar su camino y destino....bonito libro.

Compre el libro porque me interesa mucho El Camino. El libro trata casi exclusivamente del viaje espiritual del autor, un viaje que a mi no me parecio muy interesante.

Lo peor que he leído sobre el camino, realmente una pésima historia, no vale la pena perder el tiempo con esta pobre filosofía.
