Product Description

Product Description

“The Way of the Bow” relates the story of Tetsuya, the best archer of the country, who conveys his teachings to a boy in his village. Throughout the story, several thoughts are reflected; our daily efforts and work, how to overcome difficulties, steadfastness, courage to take risky decisions, etc.
Paulo Coelho expressed in these few pages many of the values which inspire our daily work: innovation, flexibility, adaptation to changes, enthusiasm, team work.

“I wrote this text in which bow, arrow, target and archer form an integral part of the same system of growth and challenge.” . — Paulo Coelho.

Very easy to read with deep meaningful insights.
Didn't realise it was only a few pages long before purchasing.
But very much enjoyed it, short, sharp and to the point!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read, as usual. 15 Sep 2013

I love the way Paulo writes, he has a way of drawing you into the book. A great short story as an introduction to his work, for anyone who has not read his books before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Review the Way of the Bow 19 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This must be the worst book Coelho has published.
It is pretentious and devoid of meaning.
The subject is one that is interesting in the extreme but he very clearly demonstrates how little he knows about it .

The only thing in its favour is that it was cheap to buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational read 30 Dec 2012
By Annie J
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have been a Coelho follower for many years and each book always has a message and surprise. This book unfolds the message as you progress and is thought provoking. Knocked one star off as the ending came abruptly, however, on reflection correctly so. If you have not come across this author before would recommend The Alchemist as the first read.
