Summary
Kraken introduces one of the most charismatic, monstrous, enigmatic, and curious inhabitants - the squid, which has supplanted the whale as the sea creature that now obsesses people's imaginations. The pages take the reader on a wild narrative ride through the world of squid science and adventure, along the way addressing some riddles about how the human brain works, what intelligence is, and what monsters lie in the deep
Summary
Presents a study on squids and other cephalopods that describe their resilience throughout history, the truth behind the misconceptions about them, and the research being done on them that could help scientists understand the human brain
