The second book in The Mysteries of Nature Trilogy by the New York Times bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben. The third book, The Secret Wisdom of Nature, is coming in Spring 2019.

"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.

Not as amazingly amazing as his The Hidden Life of Trees, but once again Wohlleben uses his no nonsense logic and sweetly humorous real life examples to demonstrate what we all know or should know anyway. Highly recommended.
