THE INNER LIFE OF ANIMALS Love, Grief, and Compassion: Surprising Observations of a Hidden World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mike Grady

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Before hitting the play button on this audio, it would be easy to feel skeptical about the idea that animals have rich emotional lives. But the combination of Wohlleben's deep wisdom and Mike Grady's warm narration will win listeners over within the first hour. The text is translated from the German, but Grady's British accent and avuncular tone recall David Attenborough's narrations of natural history videos for the BBC. The author is both insightful and humble, and these qualities are nicely reflected in Grady's welcoming voice. Drawing on his lifetime of experience with animals as diverse as horses and honeybees, Wohlleben mixes science and anecdotes to build a compelling case that humans are not nearly as special as we think.
