50BC11 #4: Like The Flowing River

Like the Flowing River, Stories 1998-2005Like the Flowing River, Stories 1998-2005 by Paulo Coelho

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great book of meditations large and small in the form of stories and true vignettes from the life of the author. I recommend keeping it on your nightstand and reading just one or two stories before you go to bed--you'll sleep well. If you are familiar with Coelho's works, you'll recognize the "warrior of the light" and the reference to "personal legends" (see The Alchemist). The collection is a testament to Coelho's expansive horizon (see The Valkyries: An Encounter with Angels) and will likely inject you with little doses of inspiration for your personal legend.
