Book cover picture Soul of an OctopusThe Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

“One of the best science books of the year.” —Science Friday, NPR


“A captivating book on an intelligence as ‘alien’ as one from outer space. And its not science fiction.” (Bernd Heinrich, author of Mind of the Raven)

“Diving deeper than Jules Verne ever dreamed, The Soul of an Octopus is a page-turning adventure that will leave you breathless. Has science ever been this deliciously hallucinatory? Boneless and beautiful, the characters here are not only big-hearted, they’re multi-hearted, as well as smart, charming, affectionate…and, of course, ambidextrous. If there is a Mother Nature, her name is Sy Montgomery.” (Vicki Constantine Croke,  author of Elephant Company)
