Book Title: The Alchemist

Author: Paulo Coelho

Book Description:

The quest for our personal dreams, goals, or ideas might send us into new lands, cultures, and directions. I found this possibility exhilarating. As Santiago, the young shepherd in The Alchemist, I believe that it's the possibility of making a dream come true that turns life interesting. Engineering and academia have allowed me to fulfill many of my dreams. I look forward to the next adventure.
