    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 this notion, not only because it is false, but because it is bad.Just because we desire something, does not make it good This idea of following I really dislik...

    I feel like everyone LOVES this book, but I was kind of underwhelmed I know that translation affects the quality of writing, but I could not get into this writing style At all I felt like it was totally affected and contrived He was going for this fable parable style, but it seemed to fail miserably The parable like quality was totally contrived, and I thought the moral was pretty stupid Moral everything you want and need is close to home Take chances Follow your personal legacy T I feel like everyone LOVES this book, but I was kind of underwhelmed I know that translation affects the quality of writing, but I could not get into this writing style At all I felt like it was totally affected and contrived He was going for this fable parable style, but it seemed to fail miserably The parable like quality was totally contrived, and I thought the moral was pretty stupid Moral everything you want and need is close to home Take chances Follow your personal legacy Then.there was a supernatural element which was just plain dumb Granted, I am not religious I think god fearing people getout of this bc they can take that leap of faith, excuse the phrase If this was supposed to be a story of magic, I may have been into it But it was supposed to be a simple story of knowing yourself And I think, philosophically speaking, when you truly know yourself that is when you truly realize your destiny Why do you need supernatural forces to convey that message This was ...

    Utter drivel The book was badly written, righteous, condescending, preachy, and worst of all, the ending was morally questionable All the fables and stories are stolen from elsewhere, religious ideas and spirituality are badly mixed, and everything is so obvious.The book harps on about tapping into the Soul of the World, the Language of the World, about your one true path and other nonsense The basic idea is that if you really want something and listen to your heart , the whole universe will Utter drivel The book was badly written, righteous, condescending, preachy, and wors...

    I hate this book so much I used to work at a hippie vegetarian restaurant where everyone raved about it, so I should have known what a disaster it would be Writing in the style of a fable does not convince me that what the author says is true or profound, 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 which is after all made up wind, stone, trees of the same stuff we are will conspire to help us achieve it Corollaries 1 peop 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.Co...

    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 profound lessons you ll learn from this book amount to nothingthan several variations on the theme of only 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 tel...
