    Antoni Bolinches

    A LUCKY BREAK Sometimes dreams help us to wake up


    This book tells the story of an

    unscrupulous social achiever that, after

    a serious car accident, begins to

    experience a series of strange psychic

    experiences that will change his life


    This self-help story, with psychic

    touches, is the first novel by renowned

    psychologist Antoni Bolinches. In a

    direct style and full of irony, a brilliant

    economist and ambitious politician tell

    us, in first person, the psychological

    changes he experiences thanks to the

    help of three great masters of the past

    who visit him while in coma. These

    messengers of wisdom help him revive

    his body and awaken his consciousness

    to a point that allows him to review his

    life plan and become a better person.

    This is a moral tale full of optimism that

    makes clear the idea that the great

    traumas can become the prelude to the

    great changes.
