I advise everyone reading Die Kunst des stilvollen Verarmens. Wie man ohne Geld reich wird [The Art of Growing Poor Stylishly] by Alexander von Schönburg.

This is a book about why you do not really need all this stuff that commercial capitalism is trying to sell to you. It has inspired me years ago.

Skimmed through the sample translation and to my surprize not everything said there was as obvious as I was expecting it to be. Thanks!


The samples are hilarious and thought-provoking. I’ll have to brush up my German to read this. Thanks for the recommendation!
