The Inner Life of Animals:
Love, Grief, and Compassion—Surprising Observations of a Hidden World

Tickets on sale now

This event includes a book signing

Harvard Book Store welcomes PETER WOHLLEBEN—bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees—for a discussion of his latest book, The Inner Life of Animals: Love, Grief, and Compassion―Surprising Observations of a Hidden World.

About 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 with Peter Wohlleben’s personal experiences in forests and fields.

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, his latest book, Peter Wohlleben follows the hugely successful The Hidden Life of Treeswith 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. Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute.

Praise

“Like The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben’s The Inner Life of Animals will rock your world. Surprising, humbling, and filled with delight, this book shows us that animals think, feel and know in much the same way as we do—and that their lives are, to them, as precious as ours are to us.” —Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus

“Peter Wohlleben’s convincing, highly readable stories about free-living and domestic animals show there’s much overlap between how humans and other animals experience bonding, loss, and the great, shared themes of life.” —Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words, What Animals Think and Feel

“With the same charm and clarity that drew so many readers to The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben has produced another gem. I found delight on every page, thanks to the author’s rare skill at blending scientific discoveries with his own wealth of insightful personal experiences. Read this book, and never again doubt that we share the Earth with other beings living rich and colorful lives.” —Jonathan Balcombe, author of What a Fish Knows
