Publisher's Summary

In The Heartbeat of Trees, renowned forester Peter Wohlleben draws on new scientific discoveries to show how humans are deeply connected to the natural world. In an era of cell phone addiction, climate change and urban life, many of us fear we’ve lost our connection to nature - but Peter Wohlleben is convinced that age-old ties linking humans to the forest remain alive and intact.

Drawing on science and cutting-edge research, The Heartbeat of Trees reveals the profound interactions humans can have with nature, exploring the language of the forest, the consciousness of plants and the eroding boundary between flora and fauna.

Will listen to 3/4 again

Full of interesting facts like the first book however it feels like the success from the first book has given the Author the confidence to emphasise his disgust on a few topics - certainly not sugar coating anything this time. Although I agree with Peter, I hear the frustration in his story. It changes the feel of the read which did start off as calming yet fascinating. The subtle way of educating people through interesting facts and storytelling was what made The Secret Life of Trees so successful - it created environmental awareness without pressure or lecture, in a calming yet intriguing way. This book most definitely lacked this stroke of genius.

it's ok. but not deep

narrator is monotone.

the book never goes deep enough. specifically lacks depth on how the trees effect us on a chemical level.
