"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."-- Provided by publisher.

Worthy, but hard to concentrate on the book for long. There is something dry about the writing style, and the effort to avoid repetition forces the author to substitute "peacefully babbling brooks" for water that flows downhill.

Very interesting connected essays; well written; Euro-centric.
