"The story has the comic charm, dramatic tension and psychological intensity of a fairy tale, but it's full of specific wisdom as well, about becoming self-empowered, overcoming depression, and believing in dreams." (Publishers Weekly)
"Yareli Arizmendi spins this marvelous tale of exotic adventure....[He] makes us feel the pain and joy of Santiago, the poor shepherd boy, as he tries to decide whether to seek a larger fortune or stay in the security of his job. Exuding softness and pathos, the narrator reminds that us most people who are unhappy failed to follow their dreams when young." [AudioFile]
More than once I paused the audio and reflected on my life and how I could improve it and pursue my personal legend.
Empowered by success. Leaders are readers and usually Entrepreneurs too.
Highly recommended for those who have a positive outlook on life. Brilliantly crafted. It's a discovery of how to follow your dream.
My wife and I really enjoyed this title. I found it inspiring and I think everyone should read this at some point in their lives. I think I would have to put this as one of my favorite books of all time.
Narrated beautifully. Beautiful story. Highly recommend to anyone who has feared pursuing a dream. There is too many quotes to list. Many gems of wisdom spread generously throughout the book.
