    My heart and I chatted, and we agreed, this book was short My heart thinks it was also stupid, and after spending some time talking to the wind, I came to agree with my heart Yet, after beginning the journey with this book and despite the words of my heart, something impelled me to continue Surely it had something to teach me The book had a

    I need to start this review by stating 1 I can t stand self help books and 2 I m a feminist no, I don t hate men some men are quite awesome, but I am very conscious of women and our place in the world Short summary mild spoilers A boy named Santiago follows his Personal Legend in traveling from Spain to the Pyramids in Egypt searching for treasur

    I really disliked this book I dislike it in the way that I dislike a great deal of modern self help books Their basic message is that if you want something to happen, you need to want it as hard as you can, without caring about anything else, not allowing yourself to doubt it, or let criticisms will get in the way then it will happen.I disagree with th

    A good parable like The Prodigal Son should comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable The problem with this little book is that it does precisely the opposite.Coelho s message and, boy, is this a book with a message is that each of us has his own Personal Legend, and that if we recognize that legend and pursue it sincerely, everything in the Universe

    The problem with this book is not just that it s bad, which it certainly is, but that there are so many people out there who want to corner you at parties and tell you how it s totally changed their lives In a way you might as well read it just so you can see how feeble minded they must be to get any kind of philosophical nourishment out of this inexhaustible stream of clich s The

    spoilers and bitterness ahead be forewarned I m not sure that I can capture my utter disdain for this book in words, but I ll give it a shot I read this book about three years ago and just had to re read it for book club It was a steaming pile of crap then and, guess what , it s a steaming pile of crap now The main reason I hate this book it s trite inspirational literature dressed up as
