The common goal, the unifying need, the successful interaction of complementary motivations - that's what we as a company focus on with our books, audiobooks, eBooks and novel booklets. Particularly in the digital world with its networks and the intensive interactions between sender and recipient, this is a decisive factor for success. For example, creating communities around our publishing brands is increasingly becoming a competitive advantage. 

In direct exchange, publishers, authors and readers make common cause in the best sense of the word and drive something forward for the benefit of all involved. For us, this principle also applies internally. Only when all Bastei Lübbe AG employees pursue a common interest and are able to realize various personal goals can we be successful as a company.  

The same applies to our authors, retail and distribution partners, service providers and investors. We create success that would not be possible on our own and only comes about when everyone works together. Just like the Catalan Colles Castelleres. Village communities that come together to form an impressive human pyramid as high as possible. Depending on their abilities and constitution, each person takes on a different function and thus makes the whole thing possible - so far, the record is 10 levels.
