This inspirational fable by Brazilian author and translator Coelho has been a runaway bestseller throughout Latin America and seems poised to achieve the same prominence here. The charming tale of Santiago, a shepherd boy, who dreams of seeing the world, is compelling in its own right, but gains resonance through the many lessons Santiago learns during his adventures. He journeys from Spain to Morocco in search of worldly success, and eventually to Egypt, where a fateful encounter with an alchemist brings him at last to self-understanding and spiritual enlightenment. The story has the comic charm, dramatic tension and psychological intensity of a fairy tale, but it's full of specific wisdom as well, about becoming self-empowered, overcoming depression, and believing in dreams. The cumulative effect is like hearing a wonderful bedtime story from an inspirational psychiatrist. Comparisons to The Little Prince are appropriate; this is a sweetly exotic tale for young and old alike. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo.

The Four Agreements
I read this book when it was first published. I bought copies later for my family and friends. One special friend was my mentor and hypnotherapist. He loved this book so much that he made it required reading for all of his clients. I can't say enough good about the principles in this book. Assumptions "used to be" my thing and whoever knew what sorrow I was creating in my own life. This little book has helped me immeasurably and I thank the author and suggest it be read, learned, practiced and read again.
changed my life forever
amazing, simple, effective. everyone should read this
I remember reading this book when it first came out and now that I have taken the time to immerse myself again in its wisdom, I am grateful for having these Toltec Teachings widen my spiritual understanding.
This book is a pleasure to read and work with on a daily basis. I recommend to anyone to take the time to read and apply this in their daily living. They will discover so many Blessings of Remembrance and become self-empowered again.
