My 3 Favorite Paulo Coelho Books
The Alchemist, however, does not even begin to get on my list of favorite Paulo Coelho books.
Top on my list is a book called Manual of the Warrior of Light.
I cannot count the number of copies of this book that I have bought.
I bought several copies for myself (because people keep borrowing it and not returning it). Some, I bought for friends. Again and again, I have bought this book.

Paulo Coelho Books Best: Manual of the Warrior of Light
Manual of the Warrior of Light is a collection of newspaper columns written by Paulo Coelho in the ’90s.
Each page of Manual of the Warrior of Light is a new passage, an inspirational thought, a message of wisdom and guidance and encouragement for the Warrior of Light.
The Warrior of Light is, according to the book, someone who seeks to fight the good fight.
I understand that to mean anyone who lives their life trying to do the right thing or to live according to “higher principles”.
No matter how many times I read Manual of the Warrior of Light, it’s still as rich for me as it was the first time.
Each time, I walk away with new nuggets of knowledge that I find directly applicable to my life.
Two other books on my Top Three Paulo Coelho Books’ list are The Devil and Miss Prym, a book about a human experiment on the nature of mankind—are we inherently good or evil?—and The Zahir, about obsession.
Wow! Paulo Coelho books are really something!

Paulo Coelho Books List: Earlier Books vs. Later Books
His earlier works such as The Pilgrimage, The Valkyries, and The Alchemist are highly spiritual and esoteric, while his later works such as Veronika Decides to Die, Eleven Minutes, and The Zahir are a lot more modern and secular (though still as deep).
If you’ve read just his earlier works or just his later works, try one of the titles from the other group and see what you think of that style.
