  • "The best weather detectives are the birds, plants and animals we share this fragile world with. But how many of us nowadays can interpret the clues they offer? Peter Wohlleben delves deep into the mysteries of animal and bird behaviour, soil management, plant adaptation, and ways of mitigating the effects of climate change on our gardens and our planet."

    Christopher Somerville, walking correspondent for The Times. Author of The January Man
  • "Wohlleben’s insightful observations of nature, combined with his signature blend of science and imagination, invite us into deeper relationship with the ecology of our homes"

    David George Haskell, Pulitzer finalist and author of The Forest Unseen and The Songs of Trees
  • "For a society increasingly distanced from nature, Wohlleben renews our appreciation of the wonderful and varied ties between the living and nonliving worlds, including those that bind our favorite plants and animals with that most familiar of all physical entities, the weather"

    Bill Streever, nationally bestselling author of Cold
  • "[A] fascinating book"
