The Soul of an Octopus, by Sy Montgomery

Sy Montgomery introduces us to one of the most alien creatures we could ever hope to meet, and helps us to fall in love. She immerses you in the aquarium worlds of Athena and Kali, two of the octopuses (yes, that's the plural!) she meets, and the wild worlds of their cousins. The stories of these creatures, as well as the amazing people who love them, might make you want to meet an octopus, take its tentacle in hand, and gaze into its eyes. Even if you find octopuses frightening or repulsive, Sy Montgomery and her colorful companions will gently but inexorably change your mind.
