As a journalist and author and a young father, I’ve come to seek more vigorously things that make me smile, things I can cherish and appreciate. When we show our heart and share from the heart, this is a sign of true beauty, and this helps us better connect with others. The book also shines a spotlight on the terrible working conditions of industrial Victorian Britain, particularly in regard to child labour. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. Come across any reference to them and you’ll be amazed, but even with all the things we know, they’ve been unconscionably understudied and we still don’t understand how they do most of the things they do.

The speaker in Octopus Mind is endearingly humble and we journey with them beyond self-criticism to reclaiming the self. He also describes his life among the octopus, scuba diving to observe and get to know a small colony.They aren’t inquisitive and grabby like octopuses; although some are crotchety and others are friendly, some of them will ignore humans on purpose, acting as if they don’t recognize humans as animals at all. The cuttlefish is famous for its ability to signal complex patterns with colours on its skin, yet it is colour-blind. Based on the true story of an octopus named Inky that found its way out of its enclosure at the National Aquarium in New Zealand and back into the ocean, Inky the Octopus: The Official Story of One Brave Octopus’ Daring Escapealso includes stories of other clever octopuses that have given their aquarist caretakers a run for their money! We were working by candlelight, a few crumbs of ginger cake and the remains of my bedtime milk – laced with honey and brandy – on a tray.

Bryony Gordon * The Telegraph * A compelling journey from the very heart of loss to the sanctuary and hope that only the natural world provides – emotive, raw and captivating. Her poems, articles and reviews have been published in numerous magazines including Poetry Wales, Envoi, Under the Radar, New Welsh Review, Ink Sweat and Tears, Poetry Saltzburg Review and Acumen. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Octopus arms have clusters of neurons in them which not only means they can act with a degree of independence, but that the arms may even have their own personalities.In God is an Octopus, Ben tells a powerful, immersive story of loss and despair and of finding healing, comfort and strength through nature. How this might affect them is difficult to say as the way they experience the world is quite different from us, but I felt this topic should have been tackled rather than brushed off.

They’re wicket smart, masters of camouflage, can squeeze themselves into tight spaces, and super helpful when you need an extra set of hands.and to celebrate, we caught up bestselling author Lindsay Galvin to get the low-down on all things 'octopus'! I read this book inside a day; it is beautifully written with carefully injected humour, reflection and heart. I am not sure it entirely succeeds in this, there is plenty sentimentality, especially towards the end. He is the author of four books, including Darwinian Populations and Natural Selection, which won the 2010 Lakatos Award for an outstanding work on the philosophy of science.
