The Inner Life of Animals

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 alongside Peter Wohlleben’s personal experiences in forests and fields. Wohlleben shares insightful stories into the emotions, feelings, and intelligence of animals around us. Ravens call their friends by name, rats regret bad choices, and butterflies choose the very best places for their children to grow up. Animals are different from us in ways that amaze—and they are also much closer to us than we ever would have thought.
