Summary
  • In The Archer we meet Tetsuya, a man once famous for his prodigious gift with a bow and arrow but who has since retired from public life, and the boy who comes searching for him. The boy has many questions, and in answering them Tetsuya illustrates the way of the bow and the tenets of a meaningful life. Paulo Coelho's story suggests that living without a connection between action and soul cannot fulfil, that a life constricted by fear of rejection or failure is not a life worth living. Instead one must take risks, build courage, and embrace the many unexpected turns fate has to offer. With the wisdom, generosity, and grace that have made him an international bestseller, Paulo Coelho provides the framework for a rewarding life: hard work, passion, thoughtfulness, the willingness to fail, and the urge to make a difference
