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.

  • Love this book!!!

    I received a hard copy of this book from a high school teacher at my open house after my high school graduation in 2015. I put off reading it for a few months as I didn’t know what it was about, but as soon as I started I couldn’t pull myself away!!! The story is so inspiring and gives you a deep sense of self and keeps you thinking. I’m so grateful for my teacher who so thoughtfully gifted me the book as it changed my life, especially during such a delicate time/age in my life when self discovery and finding my path were large parts of my journey.

    Those who are deep and not superficial will enjoy this book. Some people aren’t ready to make a change. If you’re ready to make a change for the good and ready for encouragement and tired of being mediocre this book is for you.
