This book is a must-have for all people interested in cephalopods. It is full of beautiful photographs, as well as information on the basic biology and species descriptions of many cephalopods. As a basic guide, it belongs on a shelf next to Hanlon's Cephalopod Behaviour for comprehensive knowledge of cephalopds.

The main feature of this book is that it contains glossy photographs of every cephalopod species that has been photographed, usually more than one for each. Each species comes with a short description. Several short essays are included describing mating, chromatophors, and other aspects of cephalopod behavior and anatomy. Although I'm not sure how useful it is as a resource, it is an excellent book for those who find squids and cuttlefish interesting and for artists with an interest in sea life.

While this is not a deep look at these, the most fascinating of invertebrates, it is a lively book that is most valued for its illustrations. Some of the photographs here are amazing, and the taxonomic information seems to be, from this amateur's perspective, sound and up to date. This is either a lively reference or an informative coffee table book, dependeing on your point of view, but a great addition to the library of any ceph buff.

Cephalopods a world guide introduces us to a bizarre strange fascinating ocean world which is both diverse and complex in its familarity and its skills in having such top level rich voracious predators for abundance in the food web as major role players as both predator and prey.They all lack spikey spines armour and only few are poisonous undersea.
