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 amazing and I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to pick up reading or simply wants to be reminded of the little things in life.
  • Cried & Held Myself.

    I had many visions that led me to reading this book and for it to be about many of the life obstacles I’m facing (in its own language of metaphors) really took my heart of its cavity and laid it in front of its own Personal Legend. Thank you for this good read, and thank you for allowing this to fall into numerous lives and destinies. We are changed for the better.

  • Outstanding

    By Eduardo Ortége
    For a rather short book it gives rather deep detail that in its own way is very poetic , and the amazing use of metaphors throughout the book. As well with an exceptional finale
