    If you want to find out about the man behind The Alchemist, possibly the best selling living author and modern sage, this is the book for you Juan Arias gently draws out what shaped Paulo Coelho Like many of his books, his life story is like a journey, through many experiences including a Jesuit education, dalliances with atheism, black magic, kidnappings, to his life transforming pilgrimage to Santiago del Compostella Paulo Coelho is very honest in his replies exposing his weaknesses as well as his strengths.

    This is an absolute must for anyone who loves the works of Paulo Coelho A wonderful insight to the man behind the novels I have read all the books in English I can get my hands on by Paulo and wait with anticipation for the next I have given his works to all my friends and it is interesting how each of them has fallen in love with one particular book.I am also interested in learning about Juan Arias and what books he has available in English I feel that when one, as Paulo Coelho has done,opens himself up to a personal conversation, he must have trust in the author.Forever a fan, Monique McKenna
