Publisher Description

From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees.

“The Inner Life of Animals will rock your world. This book shows us that animals think, feel and know in much the same way as we do.”—Sy Montgomery, bestselling 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. We learn that 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 captivating 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.

“Wry, avuncular, careful and kind. . . Each story adds to a widening vision of intelligence, emotion and relationship.”—The Guardian

A powerful look into the extraordinary lives of animals

This book reminds me why I chose to be Vegan 8 years ago and proves to me why I’ve always held animals in such high regard. I love the different perspectives of beings the Author describes in detail, you can just imagine all the forests, mice, ravens, deer, etc. I have experienced reinforcement in my beliefs, page after page. I’m reminded why I choose everyday to live the way I do. Thank you for the awesome look into the lives of animals!

Not as good as his first book. More of a personal expression of his own beliefs
