Cephalopods: A World Guide (Book)|
Reviewed by Nancy King
The introduction contains useful information, such as major groups of cephalopods, common features, and cephalopod body parts and terminology (the latter section illustrated by photos instead of the usual line drawings).
One slight drawback to this excellent and highly recommended guide is the indexing. There is no general index; instead, there is an index of scientific names and one of common names. If you're looking for the "blue-ringed octopus", you won't find an entry (it's found under "greater blue-ringed octopus"). However, the table of contents and the two indexes are not long and it is possible to glance through them to find what you're looking for.
If you are seriously interested in cephalopods, you need to add this book to your library.
