Remarkable new discoveries affirm the octopus as one of nature's most intelligent and complex animals in Secrets of the Octopus. Written by Sy Montgomery, the beloved author of the international bestseller The Soul of an Octopus, and enhanced with vivid National Geographic photography, this new book brings us closer than ever to these elusive creatures.

The companion to the highly-anticipated National Geographic television special, Secrets of the Octopus is a beautifully illustrated book exploring the alluring underwater world of the octopus—a creature that resembles an alien lifeform, but whose behavior has earned it a reputation as one of the most intelligent animals on the planet.

This magical journey into the world of the octopus will reveal how the large and capable brain of these creatures occupies their whole body–not just their heads—and they can actually adjust their genetic makeup to respond to the demands of the environment. It will allow readers to watch them change shape and color in order to camouflage themselves more effectively than any other species. And it will divulge how octopus mothers give their all in order to bring forth a new generation.  

With this offering, acclaimed author Sy Montgomery—known, thanks to her bestselling book, as the ''octopus whisperer''—returns to the species she knows and loves, offering current and compassionate stories about the scientists on the front lines of octopus research and conservation. 

For all animal lovers—and especially those drawn to this magical marine being—this will be a book to relish, for both its fascinating imagery and its charming storytelling.
