In 1993 Holland was a member of the international marketing team at one of the world’s leading publishers in Australia. One Friday he received the manuscript of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The book was already a local bestseller in its native Portuguese, but when Colm read it, he decided that the English translation would be an international bestseller—and it was, selling over 85 million copies worldwide. It has been translated into more than eighty languages and remains a New York Times bestseller twenty-five years after its initial publication.
The story of The Alchemist is the story of a quest for personal treasure. Once we find our treasure it is vital that we give it away to the benefit of our world. This is true empowerment and the path to the gold is personal transformation. Colm’s new book, The Secret of the Alchemist, takes you into his personal journey with Paulo Coelho so you can be the alchemist in your world.
