Niciun animal nu seamănă atât de mult cu omul în privința comportamentului social ca lupul. Elli H. Radinger, specialista germană numărul unu în lupi, a văzut de mai multe ori lupi răniți la vânătoare sau în luptă. Familia de lupi se îngrijea mereu de aceștia. Dacă plecau la vânătoare, unul rămânea cu cel rănit. Când se întorceau, îi aduceau hrană.

    This book was a refreshing change from the norm for me. I've always been curious about wolves, and apart from looking absolutely beautiful, I know that they can be very territorial.

I've always been curious about wolves, and apart from looking absolutely beautiful, I know that they can be very territorial. I suppose this book has changed my perception on wolves slightly, as well as giving me lots of interesting snippets of information. Even though this book is subtitled "How wolves can teach us to be more human" apart from a paragraph or two at the end of each chapter, all this book is about is in fact, wolves and the behaviour of wolves. Personally, I don't rate the couple of paragraphs at the end of each chapter in regards to how wolves can teach us to be more human, as the information given just seems so clichéd, and really, seems pointless in actually being in the book. This sounds like a terrible negative aspect, and quite honestly, it is, but it is the only one I have. Radinger certainly knows her stuff when it comes to wolves. And, it is made immediately obvious, that over the many years that she has studied these gorgeous creatures, that she has also developed an everlasting love for them, too. This was a pleasure to read, and the exquisite photographs included made the book even better.

    Maybe this book won’t affect everyone the same way, but on me, a nature lover, it left a big impression. You can feel the wilderness through the book and learn so much from these beautiful creatures. Every chapter starts with a quote and at the end, I would add this quote here: “The Tiger and the Lion may be more powerful but the Wolf doesn’t perform in the circus!”

    There were some very interesting stories and facts about wolves throughout this book, including the return of wild wolves into Germany. If the whole book was about that it would have been great. However, and it probably is my fault for choosing a book that included 'how wolves can teach us to be more human' in the subtitle, but this book is full of the most inane comments on modern life (e.g. kids spent too much time on their devices). The moralising throughout ruined it for me. There were some very interesting stories and facts about wolves throughout this book, including the return of wild wolves into Germany.

    Had this bought as a birthday present as the person who bought it me knew I loved wolves. Enjoyed reading it as a change. It wasn't brilliantly written but it gave a lovely insight in to how wolves survived and live both in captivity and in the wild. Yes an enjoyable read.

    Really enjoyed this book. I love wolves, and this book had lots of fascinating stories and facts that taught me a lot about them. The author is clearly very knowledgeable, and I liked how she carefully dispelled so many of the common stereotypes and misconceptions about wolves and wolf society. It is also a well-written call to action to respect nature and suggests what we can do to preserve it.

But I think what I loved most about this book was how perfectly the author captured and put into words the many reasons I've come to love wolves. I loved all of the wolf photos interspersed in the pages, as well. Overall, I feel the book captures the intelligence and beauty of wolves very well, and points out their, at times, many surprising similarities to humans. Highly recommend, especially to wolf lovers. I will definitely be picking this up again in the future for another read-through or two.

    "And once again the wolves made something clear to me: the longer I observe them, the less I know about them." The Wisdom of Wolves is a brilliant combination of natural history study of wolves and impassioned memoir. The years Radinger has spend studying the wolves in their natural habitat shines through the pages; her analysis is on point. It is both passionate and critical, she presents her arguments with a deep knowledge and understanding of wolves, their nature, and wilderness.

The book is sectioned as teachings, which we can learn something from wolves. It is great, because it demonstrates how intelligent and emotional wolves are - and how we really can learn a lot from their behaviour.

    'The Wisdom Of Wolves' is a book about wolves. The subtitle however is: How wolves can teach us to be more human. In fact, although there is a little section at the end of each chapter on this theme, the book isn’t really about anything other than wolves and wolf society. Most of the human equivalences are either trite or so over-generalised as to be meaningless. This sounds like heavy criticism, but it isn’t really, because the human end-chapter sections are very short. And the author really know 'The Wisdom Of Wolves' is a book about wolves.

This sounds like heavy criticism, but it isn’t really, because the human end-chapter sections are very short. And the author really knows her subject – this is the joy of the book. It’s science, based in meticulous, loving study over a period of decades. Mostly the book covers the extraordinary and fascinating wolf societies of Yellowstone, and here the reader is left in no doubt that the author is a voice of authority. Several chapters stand out as fascinating, especially the one of wolf/raven interaction, and the one on how wolf packs manage old wolves and ageing. The book has been criticised in some quarters for New Age babble, and there is a tiny bit of that sprinkled throughout it. There are also a few errors, for instance the bizarre reason given for wolf domestication during the Palaeolithic. But the vast majority of it speaks of the author’s immense experience of observing wolves and understanding them. A rewarding read.

    Well, I am completely biased in this review for 2 reasons: 1) I am fascinated by wild animals, but I have a soft spot for wolves (and horses); 2) every book about conservationism is for me of utmost importance. You should pick up this book if you love wolves, to understand more about the species and their behavior, also to understand more why they are vilified by farmers, shepherds and other communities, if you want to learn what to do in case you find yourself facing a wolf (that´s a privilege, Well, I am completely biased in this review for 2 reasons: 1) I am fascinated by wild animals, but I have a soft spot for wolves (and horses); 2) every book about conservationism is for me of utmost importance.

Loved it!

    While the book is interesting, I think it tries too hard to be profound. The author does a very good job of describing wolf behavior and how we can, and often do, behave as wolves. She has a very easy writing style and her work is very readable. Unfortunately, I think it tends to go on a little to long and tries a little too hard to drive home her philosophical points about wolves as models for how humans can/should behave.

I can't argue with that, however, humans do not tend to live "as in the moment" as wolves appear to. The types of concerns humans have tend to be far more complex than wolves. All-in-all, I have recommended this book to others.

    An exceptionally well-written book with loads of important information for any wolf lover. I enjoyed the fact that the author presents the wolf exactly as it is: an animal, a predator, who obviously obeys its nature. No such thing as the big bad wolf, nor the good wolf, just THE wolf. The book does justice to a still very misunderstood animal, dispels myths, and offers great advice on how we can learn from wolves and possibly even improve our lives and relationships.

    Radinger provides an intimate look into the behaviour of predominantly Yellowstone wolves, but also those from her home country of Germany, and draws parallels with our own ancestors' connection with wolves, and how we, in this modern fast paced tech-obsessed age, must break the misguided and often destructive societal perceptions of wolves, and actually see them not only as nature's children, living their natural lives in a wild landscape but also that we have a lot to learn about ourselves fro Radinger provides an intimate look into the behaviour of predominantly Yellowstone wolves, but also those from her home country of Germany, and draws parallels with our own ancestors' connection with wolves, and how we, in this modern fast paced tech-obsessed age, must break the misguided and often destructive societal perceptions of wolves, and actually see them not only as nature's children, living their natural lives in a wild landscape but also that we have a lot to learn about ourselves from these emotionally intelligent creatures. A great book.

    I've read heaps of books about dogs, dog behaviour, animals ETC - but this is one of the best. It was easy to read - non-patronising, but at a level that anyone can read without thinking the person writing it is obnoxious! Sometimes people write long-windedly, thinking they're being impressive - but this was written clearly and compassionately - with humour thrown in. It really made me want to pack my bags and go exploring. It also mentions the background of wolves, I.E. leginds ETC.

    There is a lot to like about this marvellous book. The included photos, although black and white, are inspirational. Much of the information was not new to me as a follower of most things wolf-y for many years, but the individual perspective of someone who has experiences over 10,000 encounters with wolves was fascinating. The wolf attitude is one that we could embrace with benefit to every single one of us. Thank you Elli Radinger for sharing your story.

    I would say 3.8/5 Pros: A lot of great and pretty fascinating stories about wolves in Yellowstone, with some great fun facts about life in nature. For example, natural connection of ravens and wolves, feeding habits, etc. Cons: clichés like "wolves are enjoying life, humans live in virtual world of iPhones, tablets..." In conclusion, nice and mostly easygoing book to learn something new.

    Everything about nature and animals excites me. This time I went to get to know the wolves up close, that real life, author spoke straight from the shoulder... Getting to know the cold surroundings, the beautiful nature. The author also included her view of the modern human world and dared to chide some things. I also liked this personal look of hers, but maybe someone isn’t ready for it. Beautiful photos at the end of each chapter draw you even easier and further to read.

    A fascinating story of author’s love for wolves, their social behaviors and life in Yellowstone park and in Germany. Enriched with beautiful photography, inspiring desire to go there and try to meet these magnificent animals. Definitely a great read, even if sometimes slightly with a specific ideology behind.

    I took this book with a lot of enthusiasm and curiosity but must say it left me a bit disappointed. The insights and parallels drawn between wolves and humans are kinda shallow and simplistic. It was fun to learn a bit more about daily life of wildlife but I didn’t find it very enriching either. Very easy holiday read but not much more.

    A very nice introduction to wolves and how they live. It might be the Dutch translation, but the quality of writing wasn't great. The repeated comparison between wolves and humans feels a bit forced. Still I think it's a great perspective on wolves and their return to the wild in the US and Europe.

    I absolutely love this book. There is so much wisdom in just watching animals, and the author seems to know wolves better than anyone I've ever listened to or read. Wolves and humans have a history dating back to the beginning of time, and it's fascinating. We can truly learn how to be better humans by watching our wolf counterparts. Definitely recommend this book. I absolutely love this book. There is so much wisdom in just watching animals, and the author seems to know wolves better than anyone I've ever listened to or read.

    Well written and engaging non-fiction book. I liked all the real life anecdotes and how all the facts were intertwined. I thought the links to humanity were a bit loose and sort of only came into it for the last few paragraphs of each chapter. And honestly, I don't think the connection was needed. The stories about the wolves alone was good enough for me. Well written and engaging non-fiction book. I liked all the real life anecdotes and how all the facts were intertwined.

    This was a really beautiful book. I have a new found love and respect for wolfs along with a greater understanding. I have recommended this book to friends and family all Whom have taken it up with new enthusiasm. If you are interested in learning about Yellow Stone National Park along with a basic understanding of wolves and why we desperately need them, this is a great book to start with.

    Amazingly insightful look into how alike we are with wild wolves. An enlightening read detailing many things from environmentalism, conservation, the “hierarchy” and sometimes lack there of within the Wolf Unit, all rather well explained and extrapolated from real observations of wolves in their (mostly) I disturbed habitats.

    Wonderful. A bit of a tear-jerker too. I loved how the author seamlessly spoke about the wolves' behavior and linked it to us humans. Strange to think than being closer to an animal makes us more human. Very recommended, specially to those fans of animals. Wonderful. A bit of a tear-jerker too.

    A real "Bible" for any wolf lover. Sometimes the author has a few radical thoughts about protecting the wolves, but overall is a really enjoyable lecture. The parallels between the human behaviour and the wolf are well explained with details. Definetly worth-a-buy! A real "Bible" for any wolf lover.

    Simply put - magical. Wolves are so similar to humans. They have character, motivations, humor and emotion. Wolf wisdom : love your family, take care of those who entrust you, never give up and never stop playing

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The chapters are short and succinct, the messages clear and the personal experiences endearing. I think I particularly enjoyed the book because there are so many similarities to be drawn between wolf pack life and equine herd life. I recommend this for equestrian enthusiasts as well as nature lovers.

    Wolves are amazing! What’s more amazing is that it reminds me of the old normals, when you can visit those national parks and observe the marvelous nature. All those sounds like a real luxury to me during the endless 2020.

    In each chapter you discover a different part of the fascinating life of wolves. The author describes her own yearslong observation experiences. These wild creatures are very smart, empathetic and very family-oriented. I've got very enthusiastic about wolves. 🐺🖤 In each chapter you discover a different part of the fascinating life of wolves.
