Description

The final book in The Mysteries of Nature trilogy by the New York Times bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben.

Nature is full of surprises: deciduous trees affect the rotation of the Earth, cranes sabotage the production of Iberian ham, and coniferous forests can make it rain. But what are the processes that drive these incredible phenomena? And why do they matter?

In The Secret Wisdom of Nature, master storyteller and international sensation Peter Wohlleben takes readers on a thought-provoking exploration of the vast natural systems that make life on Earth possible. In this tour of an almost unfathomable world, Wohlleben describes the fascinating interplay between animals and plants and answers such questions as: How do they influence each other? Do lifeforms communicate across species boundaries? And what happens when this finely tuned system gets out of sync? By introducing us to the latest scientific discoveries and recounting his own insights from decades of observing nature, one of the world’s most famous foresters shows us how to recapture our sense of awe so we can see the world around us with completely new eyes.

Editorial Review

"Peter Wohlleben’s curiosity about the natural world, his sense of wonder at its complexity and beauty, and his clear and compelling writing have combined in this book, The Secret Wisdom of Nature. As you read these pages you will understand why I so admire him and am so in love with his work." 
— Jane Goodall

"With scientific accuracy and easy-to-understand language, Peter Wohlleben shows us the secret, sacred relationships among living beings on this miraculous planet" 
— Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel

"Wohlleben is right to ask what we actually mean by nature: the visual and ecological beauty of a few special places, or the underlying system which makes the planet habitable. Humans, he thinks, can’t live in one place and store nature elsewhere, and of course he’s right." 
— Evening Standard
