Product Description

Product Description

«O caminho do arco» conta a história de Tetsuya, o melhor arqueiro do país, que transmite os seus ensinamentos a uma criança de sua aldeia. O trabalho e o esforço diário para ultrapassar as dificuldades, a constância e a valentia para tomar decisões arriscadas são aspectos que vão surgindo ao longo do relato.
Paulo Coelho soube expressar nestas páginas muitos dos valores que regem o nosso dia a dia: inovação, flexibilidade, adaptação à mudança, entusiasmo e o trabalho em equipe.
«Escrevi este texto onde arco, flecha, alvo e arqueiro são partes integrantes do mesmo sistema de desenvolvimento e desafio» — Paulo Coelho.

I am learning Portuguese, and bought both the English and Portuguese versions of this little book. I enjoyed it (in both languages) and recommend it. In the Portuguese version, more than the translated English one, some phrases struck me quite forcefully, in the way that real spiritual insights can. The English version feels a bit more naff and derivative, and I think that is because some of the inspiration behind the writing is lost in translation. As a text for a Portuguese learner, whatever your spiritual opinions (and I think there is nothing here that would offend anyone of any faith or none) it is brilliant. The language is direct, the vocabulary simple, and his usage rehearses most of the verb tenses nicely (most narrative fiction is in the past tense). This has the distinction (maybe not a amazing one) of being the first book I have read from cover to cover in Portuguese. It has also left a few strange traces in my heart, as I am sure many of Paulo Coelho's books do for his readers. Like many spiritual books, it will bear re-reading. My next stop is O Alquimista (Portuguese Edition).

Pleasant and straightforward short story in which the author offers some advice for life. Not much to it really but easy to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Heavy handed and obvious 21 April 2014
By Jim - Published on

"O caminho de arco" is cast in the form of an extended conversation between Tetsuya, a master bowman, and a village youth eager to learn the secrets of becoming a great archer. Tetsuya then discusses what is required : Rely on the counsel of carefully selected allies, learn to focus your energies, observe the habits of masters in other fields, spend your time in constant study and practice, and never become complacent. However, be decisive when the time comes to shoot your arrows.

Anyone who has even a superficial knowledge of either martial arts or Asian philosophy, has heard these maxims before, and has heard them expressed more adroitly. I have enjoyed Coelho's previous works, and think he would have been much better off expressing and embodying his principles in a character, who acts upon them, in one of his novels.

Pequeno livro com muitos ensinamentos. Paulo Coelho nos mostra, de forma curta porém brilhante, a filosofia contida no arquerismo. Nos ensina como o caminho do arqueiro pode ser trilhado em analogia com nossa vida, nossos mestres e ensinamento. Livro para ler em uma ou no máximo duas horas.
