We long for tea with all its flavors but its basis (and basis of all life) is water. The book appeared on the occasion of his 80th birthday at 6.7.2015 simultaneously in all world languages.
This book contains short stories about Hectors journeys to different cultural regions. Through these stories, those rules are explained that enable one to be happy, but also those that impede happiness. The original book is in French (“Le Voyage d’Hector ou la recherche du bonheur”).

This book deals with the 7 layers of the pyramid of life (goods, finance, time, health, relationships, partner, MYSELF). It describes in an easy realisable manner how reduction to the really important things makes life easier and happier. In recent years several other simplify-books have been published (Diet etc.). The original book is in German (“Simplify your life”).
This book describes why we take irrational decisions, even though we know better, and which mechanisms are responsible for this. It gives interesting insights, explanations for exiting phenomena and totally new access in situations where one needs to take a decision. The book has been translated into German (“Denken hilft zwar, nützt aber nichts”).
