This splendid book offers much more than what its title seems to promise!The wider biological background is explained in a sequence of lucidly structured, superbly illustrated chapters.The authors have perfectly succeeded in writing a book for students and researchers as well as for lay readers interested in marine zoology. This comprehensive treatment of the most exotic group of marine molluscs is likely to become indispensible reading for zoology classes at undergraduate and graduate levels. Above all it is a very rich source of information, a true vademecum for anyone interested in squid, cuttlefish and octopus. Vie et Milieu, 2006 This book provides a thorough review of this most important animal group. This comprehensive and well-illustrated book is essential reading for marine biologists, zoologists, ecologists and fisheries managers. CAB Abstracts, 2006 This is a fascinating book, providing for fish biologists a readable and comprehensive review of a parallel and rival universe of cephalopod adaptiveness, life-style and significance in marine ecosystems. It is undoubtedly an essential text and reference. Journal of Fish Biology, 2006 For many years to come, this book will surely be essential reading not only for cephalopod biologists, but for anyone interested in marine biology, ecology, and fisheries science. Quarterly Review of Biology, 2006 'This book is a good starting point for any student interested in studying cephalopods. It also gives those that specialise in a particular area of cephalopod research a broad overview of other areas that they may know little or nothing about' Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 2007 'It is a well presented book that uses an abundance of graphs and diagrams to illustrate the text, maps to show lifecycle migration, colour photos to show composite satellite images of fishing lights and to illustrate the use of camouflage. Key morphological characters that can be used to identify cephalopods' Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 2007 'I recommend that everyone with an interest in cephalopods reads this book from beginning to end because one will find information of interest to them that they would not think to look for' Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 2007
