The Wisdom of the Wolves

How they think, plan, take care of each other – amazing facts about the animal most similar to humans

"One of the most intelligent and perceptive books about nature that I know – in my next life I'd like to be a wolf!" Peter Wohlleben

Love your family, care for those entrusted to you, never give up and never stop playing – these are the golden rules of wolves. Wolves take empathetic care of their old and injured, lovingly bring up their young and are able to forget everything when playing. They think, dream, make plans, communicate intelligently with one another – and have more similarities with us humans than any other animal.

Elli H. Radinger, the best-known German wolf expert, tells fascinating stories that are exemplary of values like sense of family, trust, patience, leadership qualities, mindfulness, coping with failure or death. She tells readers of astonishing and hitherto unknown facts about the lives of wolves and demonstrates one thing: wolves would probably be the better human beings.
