Rezensionen
"The matter-of-fact Mr. Wohlleben has delighted readers and talk-show audiences alike with the news - long known to biologists - that trees in the forest are social beings."
-Sally McGrane, The New York Times

"This fascinating book will intrigue readers who love a walk through the woods."
-Publishers Weekly

"If you read this book, I believe that forests will become magical places for you, too."
-Tim Flannery

"In this spirited exploration, [Wohlleben] guarantees that readers will never look at these life forms in quite the same way again."
-Library Journal

"A paradigm-smashing chronicle of joyous entanglement that will make you joyously acknowledge your own entanglement in the ancient and ever-new web of being."
-Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast: Adventures Across the Species Divide

"Soon after we begin to recognize trees for what they are - gigantic beings thriving against incredible odds for hundreds of years - we naturally come to ask, 'How do they do it?' This charming book tells how - not as a lecture, more like a warm conversation with a favorite friend."
-Hope Jahren, author of Lab Girl

"A powerful reminder to slow down and tune into the language of nature."
-Rachel Sussman, author of The Oldest Living Things in the World

"Charming, provocative, fascinating. In the tradition of Jean-Henri Fabre and other great naturalist story-tellers, Wohlleben relates imaginative, enthralling tales of ecology."
-David George Haskell, author of The Forest Unseen, Pulitzer finalist

"Wohlleben's book is at once romantic and scientific, beautifully articulating his personal relationship with the trees he has dedicated his life to. His view of the forest calls on us all to reevaluate our relationships with the plant world."
-Daniel Chamovitz, PhD, author of What a Plant Knows

"With colorful and engaging descriptions of little-known phenomena in our natural world, Wohlleben helps readers appreciate the exciting processes at work in the forests around them."
-Dr. Richard Karban, University of California, Davis, author of Plant Sensing and Communication

"You will never look at a tree the same way after reading Peter Wohlleben's The Hidden Life of Trees, which reveals the mind-boggling properties and behavior of these terrestrial giants. Read this electrifying book, then go out and hug a tree - with admiration and gratitude."
-David Suzuki
