Keď som uvidela túto knihu, hneď som vedela, že ju musím prečítať. Autor vo mne opäť prebudil záujem o les a to sa ráta. Táto kniha však nie je opisom života lesa a stromov v ňom, ale skôr praktickým radcom o tom, čo robiť, vidieť a ako sa správať keď sme v lese. Myslím že tu je najväčšie ťažisko i kameň úrazu pre knihu, kým veľa vecí je všeobecne platných pre ktorúkoľvek krajinu, je tu aj veľa vecí, ktoré platia len v Nemecku a tak sú momenty, keď mi robilo problémy naviazať sa na knihu viac.

Please note that this book was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

I adore nature and the outdoors and the woods have always been my happy place and safe haven. There is something about walking through woodland that clears your mind and lifts your spirits.
This book by the author's own words is "an appetiser" of different aspects of woodland. From first survival techniques to spotting wild animals, woodland conservation and legislation to wildlife, this book touches on it all.

nu sunt eu prea mare plimbăreț, însă mi-a plăcut cartea. multe lucruri noi și interesante pentru mine, scriitură lejeră și multe idei despre ce s-ar putea face cu pădurea la noi. bine, dacă nu ar tăia-o unii în disperare. altfel, e un manual de utilizare atât pentru pasionații de călătorie, cât și pentru autorități. probabil că doar primii o vor citi, dar tot nu e rău.

Pădurarul Peter Wohlleben ne învață cum să supraviețuim și cum să ne purtăm cu pădurea. Dar dincolo de a fi pădurar, este un scriitor cu har și un ecologist convins, așa că ne instruiește și despre felul în care se face împădurirea sau despădurirea, despre animalele care trăiesc în pădure și de ce nu trebuie să ne temem de ele, despre căpușe sau ciuperci.
Este un ghid util atât pentru cei care fac drumeții, cât și pentru cei care se declară ecologiști, dar nu știu cum se distruge de fapt pădurea

Ich bin wirklich gern im Wald. Vielleicht war das schon der Fehler. Das Buch scheint sich eher an völlig naturentfremdete Großstädter zu richten, die im sanftmütig-esoterischen Tonfall behutsam an die Natur herangeführt werden. Begeisterung kam bei mir jedenfalls keine an.

Fantastisk fortælling. Der er ingen billeder, ingen grafisk opdeling af kapitler i sektioner, men utrolig læsbar, ligesom en roman, så du flyver igennem det hele. Jeg lånte den på biblioteket, men købte et kopi som gaven længe inden jeg læste den færdigt. Denne bog kan bruges som en reference igen og igen, og derfor satser jeg på at kunne låne min gave af og til. :)

PS Stor ros til oversætteren Anette Petersen, som jeg mener gjorde et fremragende styk arbejde. Jeg har ikke set den tyske original

Myslím, že mojim zásadným problémom sú moje očakávania.
Pretože kniha je napísaná naozaj krásne, pán autor je fascinujúca osobnosť a mám vo veľkej úcte jeho dielo i prácu. Ale ...
Knihu som prečítala, ale nedostavil sa ten pocit, na ktorý som sa tešila už dávno pradávno, keď mi ju všetci doporučovali - a to pocit úplneho oslnenia, fascinácie, zmeny pohľadu na les a život v ňom.
Myslím si, že jednak je to tým, že som vyrástala na dedine, kde som mnohé veci popísané knihe videla a zažila plus moje št

Ďalšia výborná a zaujímavá knižka od Petra Wohllebena. Po jej prečítaní sa na les začnete dívať inak a dozviete sa veľa vecí, ktoré vám pobyt v lese spríjemnia či uľahčia. Vedeli ste napríklad, že komáre vás budú štípať viac, keď sa do prírody vyberiete s čerstvo umytými vlasmi?

Interessante weetjes over de bossen in Duitsland. De vertaalster geeft ook sommige opmerkingen over de wetgeving in Nederland. Spijtig dat ze hierbij niet aan de Vlaamse lezers heeft gedacht...

Sehr viel Wissenswertes über den Wald

Die Wälder sind sein berufliches Zuhause, und die Arbeit mit Bäumen ist sein Leben. Bei geführten Waldwanderungen gibt der passionierte Förster und Autor Peter Wohlleben sein enormes Wissen über Bäume weiter. Seine Gebrauchsanweisung ist eine ebenso handfeste wie stimmungsvolle Entdeckungstour. Fundiert und unterhaltsam weist er ein in die wichtigsten Laub- und Nadelbaumarten: was sie kennzeichnet, welchen die Zukunft gehört, welche bei Gewitter wirklich Schu

I read and loved Wohlleben's The Hidden Life of Trees last year, so this book seemed a good one to follow up with. It's not quite as good as Hidden Life, but still a worthwhile read.

I thought this was going to be a lot more about wandering in the forest than it actually was. There is a lot about experiencing the forest, but Wohlleben does also branch out to talk about the politics of forest conservation in Germany, and other things pertaining to that. It's understandable that he would want to gi

If you are an avid forest lover or wish to know more about the story of the woods, their inhabitants, and natural processes, this field guide is the ideal starting point. Wohlleben shares his insights, drawing from his work and familiarity with German forests (great if you are living here, still very interesting and informative if you aren't!) It is also an opinionated account touching on hunting, felling, lumber trade, human-nonhuman relations, and much more. My one criticism would be the rathe ...more

A very enlightening book. Good translation, simple and easy. Made me realise again how man has destroyed his surroundings in the name of comfort and progress. Not that we have learned our lesson and will desist. Here in the third world, inspite of knowing better, we are following first world examples of destroying our forests. Not enough people seem to care. That is what is disheartening. After all, people here are very religious, they read or listen to our religious texts which were written in ...more

Może powinienem dać jedną gwiazdę więcej?
To nie jest wyczerpujące kompendium. To zbiór uwag, porad, obserwacji. Ładnie napisany, z ekologicznym zacięciem (jak ktoś nie rozumie, dlaczego memy z myśliwymi dokarmiającymi zwierzęta jako prawdziwymi ich miłośnikami są totalnie głupie, musi przeczytać!).
Podkreślę: ładnie napiany. Część książek czytam na głos -- taki domowy układ -- i mam porównanie, czy czyta się je ciężko, jak Piarżysko (z wyjątkiem cytatów z Prusa), czy w przypadku Przewodnika wędro

V tejto knihe sa dozviete, ako vyrobiť žuvačku z dreva, prečo sa v Škandinávii losy neboja ľudí, prečo to nie je až také romantické, keď vidíte počas zimy hromady stád v okolí polí alebo prečo sa dážďovka volá dážďovka. Mňa hlavne prebudila zo zimnej mestskej letargie a láka ma do lesa. A to je jej cieľom.

I absolutely loved “The Hidden Life of Trees” and was looking for something of the same. While this is a lovely gentle guide to walking in the woods, it provided little in the way of new knowledge in the way it’s predecessor did. I do love the writing style - it is easy to hear the authors voice in every page - and his years of experience working in the woods makes his tales unique.

Soms interessant, maar vaker saai en onsamenhangend. Had er wat anders van verwacht (ligt ook aan de slechte vertaling van de oorspronkelijke titel). Maar de boodschap die hierin staat is belangrijk, ik hoop dat zoveel mogelijk mensen hem lezen.

Võiks arvta, et üks õpetus on kuivemapoolne lugemine, aga ei. See raamat tundus mulle vägagi mahlakas. Kirjutatud huvitavalt. Tekitades isu kohe hommepäev metsa jalutama minna. ;) Raamat kinkis palju uusi teadmisi ja pakkus mõtlemisainet.

Shelves: priroda
Na rozdíl od knihy "Tajný život stromů", je tato pojata o něco vážněji. Je tam spousta zamyšlení o ochraně přírody a obecně naším vztahem k ní. A samozřejmě spousta informací o lese, stromech a zvířatech, o tom co pozorovat a co v lese dělat. Vše prodchnuto láskou a nadšením k lesu a psaní. ...more

Zdecydowanie za mało informacji o samym lesie a za dużo opinii na temat pracy myśliwych, lesniczych i wycinki drzew.
