    Inhaltsangabe

    There is a lifeform so strange and wondrous that it forces us to rethink how life works....

    Neither plant nor animal, it is found throughout the earth, the air and our bodies. It can be microscopic, yet also accounts for the largest organisms ever recorded, living for millennia and weighing tens of thousands of tonnes. Its ability to digest rock enabled the first life on land, it can survive unprotected in space and it thrives amidst nuclear radiation. 

    In this captivating adventure, Merlin Sheldrake explores the spectacular and neglected world of fungi: endlessly surprising organisms that sustain nearly all living systems. They can solve problems without a brain, stretching traditional definitions of ‘intelligence’, and can manipulate animal behaviour with devastating precision.  

    In giving us bread, alcohol and life-saving medicines, fungi have shaped human history, and their psychedelic properties, which have influenced societies since antiquity, have recently been shown to alleviate a number of mental illnesses. The ability of fungi to digest plastic, explosives, pesticides and crude oil is being harnessed in break-through technologies, and the discovery that they connect plants in underground networks, the ‘Wood Wide Web’, is transforming the way we understand ecosystems. Yet they live their lives largely out of sight, and more than 90 percent of their species remain undocumented. 

    Entangled Life is a mind-altering journey into this hidden kingdom of life and shows that fungi are key to understanding the planet on which we live and the ways we think, feel and behave. The more we learn about fungi, the less makes sense without them.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "A dazzling, vibrant, vision-changing book. Sentence after sentence stopped me short. I ended it wonderstruck at the fungal world. A remarkable work by a remarkable writer." (Robert MacFarlane, author of Underland)

    Instagram-Wissenschaft

    Ein interessantes Buch über Pilze, Ökosysteme, die Forschungstätigkeit und das Leben des Autors - für meinen Geschmack aber mit zu vielen biografischen Informationen und zu viel generelles Geschwurbel. 2/3 des Textes hätten gereicht, um das Thema Pilze immer noch anschaulich zu erklären. (Ich persönlich mag einfach keine Sachbücher, die halbe Biografien und Befindlichkeitsberichte plus Belletristik enthalten. Wenn ich Egozentrik will, gehe ich in die sozialen Medien.)

    Ansonsten ein empfehlenswertes Buch zu einem faszinierenden Thema!

    Poetic and inspiring

    Sheldrake's narrative weaves together historical, scientific, spiritual, cultural, practical and personal perspectives on fungi with magically poetic language to imbue the reader with a sense of the nature of fungi and their relationships with all sorts of creatures, including ourselves. A self-reflecting narrative that brings up fundamental philosophic questions underlying and informing our perception of fungal life.

    What a treat to have it read to us by the author himself, with all his passion and wonder!

    reminiscent of a druid speaking

    the text is often of poetic beauty, if you like words, you will like this book.
    The subject is both occult and also scientific, the author makes clear if he is speaking about known things, speculation or dreams. fascinating subject matter
    The author is reading the text himself and that leads to a well performed piece of work, as he knows what he is/was trying to say and takes his time and voice to add even more clarity to thoughts your mind has never before tried to grasp. his mannerism in reading is as pleasant as his voice.

    there is just as much lightness and delight palpable in the text as there is gravity, seriousness and sometimes even open speculation.

    It was incredibly inspiring to listen to this man and his text. I purchased the book to read it after.. and started to relisten too

    Thanks a lot for writing such an interesting book

    This book is amazing for mycology enthusiasts or for those who, like me, end up becoming one after reading the book.

    fascinating book

    a truly beautiful, inspiring book. A rare combination of being informative and readable combined with a engaging narrative. Makes you want to become a mycologist. My only minor complaint would be that it feels a bit overly optimistic about the possible applications of fungi at times but I suppose that was to be expected.
