    Great list, although I’ve been Brazil-based for nearly 20 years and find that Paulo Coelho is highly overrated. Replace the Alchemist with this absolute must-read: “Leadership and Self-Deception” by the Arbinger Institute. Falls into your leadership and fiction categories, and spiritual as well, albeit very subtly.
