A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho.

Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

    This book is full of spiritual significance and life lessons to be learned. I loved the entirety of it. I would recommend to anyone who feels without purpose and ask them to look deep inside themselves to find what it is they are meant to do in this world. There are good times and there are bad times in one’s life but just know that they are all written by the same hand.

    This book is an amazing read. I love how the author sets up the plot and explains the setting. As I’m reading it feels like I am watching a movie as the author set of imagery with clarity. In the book the characters are simple to remember and they have personalities.
  • My favorite book…

    I absolutely love this book. I always seem to find myself coming back to it, to read and reflect on my own life as I pursue my Personal Legend. This book has many lessons, and I think everyone can relate to Santiago in search for his treasure. Read this book, you will not regret it.
