Every few decades, a book is published that forever changes the lives of its readers. Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist is one such book. With over 150 million copies sold worldwide since its initial publication 25 years ago, and translations into over 80 languages, The Alchemist has already achieved the status of a modern classic.
This is a timeless story that teaches us, as only few stories can, 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. Paulo Coelho weaves this wisdom through 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. His journey takes him from his home in Spain, to the markets of Tangiers, and into the Egyptian desert, where a fateful encounter with the alchemist awaits him.
This special 25th anniversary edition of The Alchemist, updated with a new introduction by Paulo, will continue to inspire readers everywhere to follow and fulfill their dreams.
