Summary

Summary

Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The combination of Wohlleben’s deep wisdom and Mike Grady’s warm narration will win listeners over within the first hour. The text is translated from the German, but Grady’s British accent and avuncular tone recall David Attenborough’s narrations of natural history videos for the BBC. The author is both insightful and humble, and these qualities are nicely reflected in Grady’s welcoming voice…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Animal lovers everywhere will be enthralled by The Inner Life of Animals. Find out what squirrels, deer, and other animals really do out in the woods.” Temple Grandin, New York Times bestselling author
“Wry, avuncular, careful, and kind, Wohlleben guides us from one creature to the next…Each story adds to a widening vision of intelligence, emotion, and relationship.” Guardian (London)
“On reading this gently learned book, readers will pay more attention to animals generally and learn how to be better neighbors to them.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
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
