A fascinating new look at the messages we miss outside our front door, from the author of bestselling Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month, The Hidden Life of Trees and The Inner Life of Animals.

As soon as we step out of the door, nature surrounds us.

Thousands of small and large processes are taking place, details that are long often fascinating and beautiful. But we've long forgotten how to recognise them. Peter Wohlleben invites us to become an expert, to take a closer look and interpret the signs that clouds, wind, plants and animals convey.

Chaffinches become weather prophets, bees are live thermometers, courgettes tell us the time. The Weather Detective combines scientific research with charming anecdotes to explain the extraordinary cycles of life, death and regeneration that are evolving on our doorstep, bringing us closer to nature than ever before.

A walk in the park will never be the same again.

A German forester, Peter Wohlleben has spent his career studying the intricate inter-connection and communication of natural ecosystems. In this new book, he brings together the lessons gleaned from studying plants, trees and animals and combines them with the signs and signals of our changing planetary systems. The result is a highly readable and eye-opening guide to the world beyond our front door; a book that delivers a radical new perspective on our changing planet and our role in its preservation.
