Editorial Reviews

Review

“A wise and inspiring fable about the pilgrimage that life should be.” (M. Scott Peck)

“An adventure story full of magic and wisdom.” (Rudolfo Anaya, author of Bless Me, Ultima)

“A touching, inspiring fable.” (Indianapolis Star)

“A magical little volume.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“[This] Brazilian wizard makes books disappear from stores.” (New York Times)

“[His] books have had a life-enchanting effect on millions of people.” (London Times)

“A beautiful story with a pointed message for every reader.” (Joseph Girzone, author of Joshua)

“As memorable and meaningful as Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince.” (Austin American-Statesman)

“A sweetly exotic tale for young and old alike.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A most tender and gentle story. It is a rare gem of a book.” (Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D., co-author of Change Our Mind, Change Your Life)

“An entrepreneurial tale of universal wisdom we can apply to the business of our own lives.” (Spencer Johnson, M.D., co-author of The One-Minute Manager)

“A remarkable tale about the most magical of all journeys: the quest to fulfill one’s destiny.” (Anthony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant Within)

From the Back Cover

"My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky." Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams."

Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book. With over a million and a half copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired. Paulo Coelho's charming fable, now available in English for the first time, will enchant and inspire an even wider audience of readers for generations to come.

The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist.

The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.
