How can it be that the supposedly most highly developed being on this planet destroys its habitat itself?

Do we really have our destiny in our own hands or don't we act - like every other animal species - mainly driven by instinct? Apparently yes: Incapable of forward-looking, long-term thinking, purely interested in the immediate satisfaction of needs, humanity is plundering the planet's resources without restraint and is steering towards its own demise with open eyes.

In his fascinating new book, Peter Wohlleben provides the first insight into the true nature of human beings. Using many amazing comparisons to the animal and plant world, he shows that we are not the crown of creation, but that evolution is still having an effect on us. Only when we understand human nature and accept its ongoing impact can we embark on new paths that make a future worth living possible!
