Helmut  Schmidt - Off Duty


“An impressive work of a politician whose wisdom has only increased since leaving the chancellor’s office twenty-five years ago.”

“A few months before his ninetieth birthday, the ‘elder statesman’ has presented a reckoning of his life, in which he dispenses with hasty nostrums yet has lost none of his verve.”
RBB Stilbruch

“His enormous reputation is matched by none. For this Methuselah of German politics unites in himself in a mysteriously coherent way what normally are contradictions: he is both pragmatic and principled.”
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

“A readable mix of basic politics, memoirs and assessments, religious-philosophical meditations, and a remarkable chapter in which Schmidt contemplates his own mistakes.”
Süddeutsche Zeitung

“This book is the sum of what he has learned in his long political life in war and peace. Insights and interrelationships are conveyed clearly and comprehensively without the author’s resorting to complicated and often purposefully hermitic language, something that all too often characterizes academic and intellectual discourse in Germany. Helmut Schmidt has not only something important to say. He also puts value in being understood.” Deutschlandradio Kultur
