    A truly astonishing book

    lively trees

    Fascinating gathering of research on tree and forest behaviour written in a personal engaging style. Concentrates on european forests with some reference to north america. A pity it does not cover Australian forests that may show different behaviour. Perhaps the research does not exist yet.

    Trees in a new light

    You will change the way you think about trees after reading this. Well worth the read.

    Great book, pity about the translation

    I loved this book and learned a lot. It’s very informative and written in an accessible style but is supported by science. I recommend everyone read it to further their understanding of the natural world and our place in it. Without trees, and without forests, we are toast. My only complaint is that the editing, in the English translation, at least, was sloppy. Chapters end suddenly, (which I can forgive as Wohlleben’s particular style), and the text is littered with antiquated terminology such as “&Co”. Even worse is the inexplicable use of imperial units. Although it is popular science, it is still science, so stick with the original SI units that everyone understands. Only three countries still use this 17th century system, and in Liberia and Myanmar it’s on the way out. I hope the publisher updates the translation to modern English.
