"Like The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben's The Inner Life of Animals will rock your world. Surprising, humbling, and filled with delight, this book shows us that animals think, feel and know in much the same way as we do--and that their lives are, to them, as precious as ours are to us."-Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus

Through vivid stories of devoted pigs, two-timing magpies, and scheming roosters, The Inner Life of Animals weaves the latest scientific research into how animals interact with the world with Peter Wohlleben's personal experiences in forests and fields.

Horses feel shame, deer grieve, and goats discipline their kids. Ravens call their friends by name, rats regret bad choices, and butterflies choose the very best places for their children to grow up.

In this, his latest book, Peter Wohlleben follows the hugely successful The Hidden Life of Trees with insightful stories into the emotions, feelings, and intelligence of animals around us. Animals are different from us in ways that amaze us-and they are also much closer to us than we ever would have thought.

Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute.

Peter Wohlleben spent over twenty years working for the forestry commission in Germany before leaving to put his ideas of ecology into practice. He now runs an environmentally-friendly woodland in Germany, where he is working for the return of primeval forests. He is the author of numerous books about trees. Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson ...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me For some reason this didn't work. It was good and interesting, bit it being overly anecdotal threw me off. I was expecting more science, and maybe that was the reason I just couldn't get into it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good read I bought this book as I love animals and wanted to learn more about them from another perspective. I found the book to be interesting, full of anecdotes and some scientific studies all of which agree with what I have seen with pets and wildlife.
