Who wouldn’t like to be told by famous German TV host and producer Frank Elstner how to shape a career like him? Or how to learn to have an answer ready for every situation by iconic talk show host Anne Will? Or how to become as free and unbiased as former MTV host and writer Charlotte Roche. Matze Hielscher, co-founder of the digital city magazine “Mit Vergnügen” and host of the popular interview podcast “Hotel Matze” has written a wonderful book in which he has captured the wisdom of impressive people. For whom this book is made? “For all people who find themselves standing at the edge of the pool and don’t quite dare to jump in. Because most of the people in the book felt the same way at some point.”
Captured between two book covers are dozens of life recipes of successful, German creative minds, whose life stories will inspire you and give new life impulses. Inspired by more than a hundred exciting interviews during his podcast “Hotel Matze”, he had the idea of capturing wisdom and tricks of the trade that have thrilled his listeners every week for the past 4 years. People such as Ferdinand Von Schirach and Dunja Hayali talk about their life decisions, missteps, and learning experiences, and above all what advice they want to give young people on their own path.
The book “The School of my Life” by Piper Verlag is now available in bookshops.
