Ancient Wisdom for Modern Readers 3. März 2013
Von Michael Kear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I've been a huge fan of Paulo Coelho since The Alchemist. All of his books and novels teach us about wisdom, life and love. This latest book is not really a novel in the traditional sense. Manuscript Found in Accra is actually in the realm of wisdom literature, a compendium of brief discourses in the spirit and style of Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet.

The setting is Jerusalem in 1099 AD. A diverse crowd of people has gathered in dreaded anticipation of the destruction of their city by an army of advancing Crusaders. A mysterious man known only as The Copt arises and begins to speak to them. What follows is a night of questions and answers through which The Copt pours forth ancient wisdom to the anxious listeners.

There is no new revelation in these pages, but rather a re-telling of the old ways of wisdom and light through the mouth of The Copt. Coelho freely evokes Kahlil Gibran. Consider The Copt's words, "Work is the manifestation of Love that binds people together." Compare that to Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet, who says, " Work is love made visible. ... when you work with love you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God." Coelho also repeatedly puts the exact words of Jesus Christ into the mouth of The Copt without mentioning the original source of those words. Nevertheless, in spite of the lack of originality, Coelho's writing style is engaging, interesting and intriguing. The wisdom contained between these covers is essential to the well being of our souls. Some chapters will speak with more clarity and urgency than others, depending upon the needs and interests of the reader, but as a whole, Manuscript Found in Accra will have something to benefit every reader.

Words of Wisdom 2. März 2013
Von Edward J. Barton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Unlike many of Paulo Coelho's most recent books, where the theme of the book is a spiritual or moral journey set within either an autobiographical or fictional account, "A Manuscript Found in Accra" follows the pattern of one of Coelho's earlier works, "A Manual for the Warrior of Light" in that the book is a collection of wisdom sayings and sage advice around various life topics.

Set in Jerusalem the night before the invasion by the Crusaders in 1099, the book chronicles the wisdom of life as synthesized by "The Copt". Covering areas as broad as the meaning of life, love, sex, work, failure, defeat, solitude, faith and other challenging life topics, "The Copt" draws on diverse wisdom literature such as the Talmud, Bible, Koran and other sources to synthesize life lessons to a crowd of people facing certain upheaval and likely death within the next 24 hours.

While the introduction and back story are mildly interesting, and set the stage for the sage wisdom to follow, the book itself reads as an interesting, but somewhat parental lecture on these mysteries of life, love and death. In classic Paulo Coelho fashion, the message squarely hits the mark, and the reader will find challenging and profound insights within the pages. The spiritual, philosophical and psychological elements blend together nicely to provide the reader with a thought provoking and soul searching look at some of the greatest questions life has to offer.

While many casual fans of Coelho will likely be disappointed by the plot (or lack thereof) and the format of the book, the reader who enjoys the deep spiritual and psychological elements of Coelho's work, and who may have enjoyed the "Manual" will find this a fascinating, thought provoking and personally insightful read.

Transformational Wisdom 2. April 2013
Von Brendon Burchard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A wise man sits in a square taking questions about life on the eve of his town's massacre by an invading army. His wisdom, delivered in simple yet profound sentences, can alter the course of your life. A must-read for anyone interested in living a courageous, loving, meaningful life. My favorite quotes:

16. In the cycle of nature there is no such thing as victory or defeat; there is only movement ... there are neither winners nor losers; there are only stages that must be gone through. When the human heart understands this, it is free and able to accept difficult times without being deceived by moments of glory.

23. Defeat ends when we launch into another battle. Failure has no end; it is a lifetime choice.

30. The act of discovering who we are will force us to accept that we can go further than we think.

31. .. saying no does not always show a lack of generosity, and that saying yes is not always a virtue.

40. Ask a flower in the field: "Do you feel useful? After all you do nothing but produce the same flowers over and over." And the flower will answer: "I am beautiful, and beauty is my reason fro living." Ask the river: "Do you feel useful, given that all you do is keep flowing in the same direction?" And the river will answer: "I'm not trying to be useful; I'm trying to be a river." Nothing in this world is useless in the eyes of God.

41. Don't try to be useful. Try to be yourself; that is enough, and that makes all the difference.

42. Do one thing: Live the life you always wanted to live. Avoid criticizing others and concentrate on fulfilling your dreams.

48. Dreaming carries no risks. The dangerous thing is trying to transform your dreams into reality.

50-51. ... they risk taking a first step -- sometimes out of curiosity, sometimes out of ambition, but generally because they feel an uncontrollable longing for adventure. At each bend in the road, they feel more and more afraid, and yet, at the same time, they surprise themselves; they are stronger and happier. Joy. That is one of the main blessings of the All Powerful. If we are happy, we are on the right road.

53. "Difficulty" is the name of an ancient tool that was created purely to help us define who we are.

54. And to those who believe that adventures are dangerous, I say, try routine; that kills you far more quickly.

68. Because Enthusiasm is the Sacred Fire.

135. And may this lead us to behave impeccably, making use of the four cardinal virtues: boldness, elegance, love, and friendship.

146. Excessive caution destroys the soul and the heart, because living is an act of courage, and an act of courage is always an act of love."

151. Our soul is governed by four invisible forces: love, death, power, and time.

153. Therefore, what the future holds for you depends entirely on your capacity for love.

153. The greatest gift God gave us is the power to make decisions.

154. And precisely when everything seems to be going well and your dream is almost within your grasp, that is when you must be more alert than ever. Because when your dream is almost within your grasp, you will be assailed by terrible GUILT.

169: The wounded person should ask himself: "Is it worth filling my heart with hatred and dragging the weight of it around with me?"

177. On loyalty: And beware of the pain you can cause yourself by allowing a vile and cowardly heart to be part of your world. ONce the evil has been done, there is no point in blaming anyone: the owner of the house was the one who opened the door.

178. The most important of wars is not waged with a lofty spirit or a soul accepting of its fate. It is the war that is going on now, as we speak, and whose battlefield is the Spirit, where Good and Evil, Courage and Cowardice, Love and Fear face one another.

I loved this book... surprisingly, as much as I liked The Alchemist.

-- Brendon Burchard. #1 New York Times bestselling author of "THE CHARGE" and "THE MILLIONAIRE MESSENGER"

Happy to be the first Korean reader of Manuscript found in Accra 4. April 2013
Von Yisun KiM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am happy to be the first Korean reader to read Paulo Coelho's new book Manuscript found in Accra.

I was surprised. It felt as if Senor Coelho had established his own religion for people living in this era. I had a feeling I was making conversations with him through my heart. I thought that the way people ask and search for answers when facing a war about to break out appear similar to the way people might have asked and found answers for themselves in tragic circumstances like the 9/11 terror attacks. This is when I understood the sentence "which are the values that remain when everything is destroyed?"

I find that the basis for the 20 questions appearing in the book is from our "fear." Fear of losing, fear of loneliness, fear of being unworthy, fear of change, fear of love, fear of the flow of time, fear of sex, and fear of obligations to support his family. For the fear, it gives people the reason to ask questions about successful people, about miracles and about their future. Fear and insecurity are emotions that seem to exist regardless of time. So naturally when everything is destroyed, the remaining values are no doubt ways to defeat "fear and insecurity." It felt as though the author was trying to encourage readers to defeat "fear and insecurity" by seeking ways together with him. I do not think that the answer from the Copt - in other words, the author - is the one and only answer. I do not think that is what the author wanted. I feel that in the time and efforts of questioning and searching for answers, people find light and ways.

Senor Coelho is already searching by himself - or together with readers - for values that give us strength in life through his blog and twitter. The form of arena is different, it is nothing like the one from the medieval times, but people continue to question and find answers through a new type of arena called social networking. With the answers "some will write down what (he) say(s). Others will remember (his) words." They "will set off for the four corners of the world" and "tell(ing) others what (they) have heard." I know that Senor Coelho is becoming "a centre of knowledge (...) again." I hope Korean readers will meet this book soon".

Good ... but not the best Paulo Coehlo book for me. 10. Mai 2013
Von Amber FLYNN - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I really love Paulo Coelho. He is an amazing writer and storyteller and I have read most all of his books. That said, I felt like this particular book was not one of his best. At first I was confused whether or not the "Manuscript found in Accra" was real. I still don't know. It is not stated as a fact in the book. I guess its not..... when I just couldn't figure that out, I started to read.

I felt that immediately disappointed that this book reads just like the book "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran. As I read further it kept reading like Gibran, which felt very familiar and weird..... I mean it could be an extension of Gibran's book, because the format is exactly the same. For instance each chapter starts with something like this: "And a woman who was getting on in years and had never found a husband said: "Love has always passed me by." Then the chapter starts with, "And he answered: In order to hear Love's words, you must allow Love to approach." This feels just like Gibran to me.

All that said, there is beautiful Wisdom in here, as there is in all Coehlo's books but for some reason I just couldn't get past how much it read like something that has been done before. And I kept asking myself, "Where is the story?"

And yes, it is wonderfully written as all of Coehlo's books.... and .... but... I don't know. I guess I was expecting more. So buyer be aware that this book is not a "story" per se, but rather a self help sort of book with actually loads of love and wisdom, and certainly good advice and beauty..... But don't expect a story, but rather small stories within a possibly real story... that reads a lot like the book "The Prophet" by Gibran.

I gave it 3 stars because I did like the material and it is well written. It just didn't feel like an original creative work, which has always been the case when I read Coehlo.
