I enjoyed this book but found it spotty. The author was too present, too intrusive. I think her style may be influenced by Mary Roach, and a little of that goes a long way with me. I learned a lot about cephalopods, and I really, really, really wish I could have cromatophores.

I flat-out loved the neuroscience chapter. I think I need a good pop-sci neuroscience book right away.
