New ceph book coming soon:

Although it’s still two months before Kraken is published, excitement is building. Wendy has already been asked to speak at a wide variety of institutions, ranging from the Harvard Museum of Natural History to the National Aquarium and the Aquarium of the Pacific to Rhode Island’s premier outdoor club, RICKA. More on schedule and dates to come later.

And early readers continue to be enthusiastic. The University of Colorado’s Marc Bekoff called Kraken engaging and informative, and Yale University’s Vince Pieribone said it was a “perfect blend of storytelling and science.” . . .

This book looks really interesting! I can't wait for it to come out! I recently just bought my first ceph book. It's called Octopus: The Ocean's Intelligetn Invertebrate, by Jennifer A. Mather, Roland C. Anderson, and James B. Wood. I'm super excited about reading it, and I can't wait for this new book to come out so that I can add it to my collection :)

I am only about 1/4 of the way through the book but am delighted with its contents. Even though much of the basic cephalopod description and behavior will be known by most that keep cephalopods, Wendy Williams reveals the history behind discovering what we know. The research projects she sites bring in both historical discoveries work being done as of the printing. I am really enjoying the read.
