The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I’ve probably seen this book recommended more than just about any other book. I’ve been a member of an online community called Order of Man for a while, and the number of men in that group recommending this one is staggering.
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.
