Awesome early blurbs for Octopus!

Octopus! jacket_final (1)

Octopus! has already received some kind early words from:

Carl ZimmerNew York Times science writer and author of A Planet of Viruses and The Tangled Bank: An Introduction to Evolution: 

“The octopus is like an alternate experiment in intelligent life–sophisticated, alluring, and wholly alien. In her fresh, deeply-reported book, Katherine Harmon Courage makes this creature a little less mysterious, but no less marvelous.”

Frans de Waal, biologist and author of The Bonobo and the Atheist:

“What is it like to be an octopus? We need to imagine that our arms, all eight of them, can think and that our skin can see. Despite our obvious trouble to understand this invertebrate, no one doubts its intellect. A delightful book about a fascinating creature!”

Will Tracy, Editor in Chief of The Onion:

“According to this book, octopuses can sprout temporary horns. Horns! Seriously, you need to read this book.”

You can preorder the book from:

Barnes & Noble
