Joachim Klöckner has succeeded in what many long to do. He has managed the growing complexity of everyday life by freeing himself from most of the objects that people consider necessary. In doing so, he has discovered that you need much less to be happy than you think.
Joachim Klöckner lives with only around 50 things that he needs to live. It does not take any more to be happy. He tries to consume as little as possible. This is a good idea in itself, especially in the context of an ever-growing population on earth, and it is gaining more and more proponents every day.
But how can everyone manage to do this? How can you find the way out of the rat race and into a happy, self-determined life? How can you get rid of unnecessary ballast and how do you recognize the really important objects which you cannot live without? How can you escape the influences of your environment and your fellow human beings?
