In this collections of extracts from classic Books that have inspired Paulo Coelho, he explores the emotions and reflections in works as diverse as The Art of War, lady Chatterley’s Lover and Frankenstein.
Arranged in four sections –water, earth, air and fire – which echo the four elements of the Ancients, Coelho’s anthology takes us by the hand on a wonderful journey: discovery with Alice through the looking-glass; danger with Dracula’s human pet; thrills with Jekyll and Hyde in nineteenth-century London, and powerful lust with Venus and her furs, among many others.

Paulo shows how lessons can be learned in the most surprising places, and that books from ancients Persia through to post-war Britain can each offer profound insights into our lives, our loves, and the truth in all of our hearts.
