About the book:
Katherine Harmon Courage – a veteran journalist and contributing editor for Scientific American – dives into the amazing underwater world of the octopus. She reports on her global travels, inviting us to experience the scientific discoveries and cultural ties that connect us to the octopus. Octopus! reveals that the oldest known octopus lived before the first dinosaurs; that two thirds of an octopus’s brain capacity is spread through it’s arms – meaning each one literally has a mind of it’s own; and that it can change colours in milliseconds to camouflage itself, even though it appears to be colourblind. Courage deftly interweaves personal narrative and interviews with leading octopus experts. The result is an entertaining and scientifically grounded exploration of the octopus and its astoundingly complex world.
