The Soul of an Octopus

Recommendation inspired by:
Why the octopus brain is so extraordinary - Cláudio L. Guerra

Why we love this book:

I went into this book thinking octopuses were cool. I came out of it knowing that octopuses are brilliant and wanting to make friends with one, as the author of this book does to great, moving effect.
