Today’s Question by Susan

Author: Paulo Coelho

What do you think of books like The Secret, in which the authors have been accused of making money out of vulnerable readers?

I don’t think there is anything wrong with making money out of art. There is the idea that to do art you have to starve to death, but why should this be so? What I think is important is you have to be responsible for what you write and know God is watching. If you’re manipulating people, you’re going to pay the price.
