I’m very happy to announce the publication of Die Achtsame Revolution — the German version of The Mindful Revolution. The book is available as an eBook for Kindle Reader and apps as well as in a paperback version.
Having received first feedback after the launch of The Mindful Revolution, it became clear that I would translate it and publish a German version, too. Due to many technical terms, most of the neuroscientific area, my thesis becomes easier to transport and understand when delivered in a native language.
For me, personally, it was a highly interesting experience to first of all write The Mindful Revolution in English — and I’m totally aware that I’d never match the style of a native speaker, but it was a nice challenge, anyway — and then to re-translate it into my native language, German. In principle, you could compare this endeavor to the “Whispers” game: one person starts telling something to another person, and so on. The final output always differs greatly from what was originally put in. In my case, I had to re-word much of the original The Mindful Revolution content in order to produce not only a comprehensible but a fluent reading experience in Die Achtsame Revolution.
I hope, my German readers have fun reading Die Achtsame Revolution, and I’d be happy to receive their feedback!
