Stefanie Stahl Das Kind in dir muss Heimat finden

No author before her has ever achieved this: with her book "Das Kind in dir muss Heimat finden" (The Child Within You Must Find a Home), the well-known psychologist and bestselling author Stefanie Stahl has taken first place in the German Spiegel annual bestseller list in the "Paperback Non-Fiction" category for the sixth time in a row. "Das Kind in dir muss Heimat finden" was published in autumn 2015 by Kailash and has consistently occupied a place in the top five of the Spiegel paperback non-fiction list since April 2016. To date, the book has sold more than 2.5 million copies in the German-speaking markets. An English edition was published in 2020; in total, "Das Kind in dir muss Heimat finden" has been published in 34 countries.

"Simply no one can get past Stefanie Stahl!" says Stephanie Taverna, Publishing Director of Goldmann Nonfiction. "She is and remains Germany's most popular psychologist and author, her target group is growing and growing, and her contribution to the understanding of our psyche deserves the Federal Cross of Merit in my eyes!"
