Manuscrito encontrado em Accra - Paulo Coelho Since I first read The Alchemist, I've always loved Paulo Coelho's books. I think this book is a MUST READ for every single soul on earth no matter which your religion or believes you've got. It contains all the wisdom that should be taught in schools, instead of losing hours with stupid subjects about religion or ethics, it contains the essence of life.

The author is humboldt enough to recognise that this is not his writing, which makes him even greater than what I thought.
It is just a transcription of a manuscript found in Jerusalem, the authentic one, and there is not a single word spoiled in it.
It is a book to keep for the rest of your life in a safe place and go to when needed.

Simply brilliant.
