Sy Montgomery’s new book “The Octopus Scientists: Exploring the Mind of a Mollusk” from the “Scientists in the Field Series” will be released on May 26, and it is a stellar scientific text.

The photographs by award-winning underwater photographer Keith Ellenbogen are absolutely brilliant, and they help bring the book to life; moreover, book’s syntax is impressive. Montgomery introduces her readers to the “Octopus Team,” which include professor Jennifer Mather, professor David Scheel, professor Tatiana Leite and interpretive specialist Keely Langford, and she subsequently shares neat facts on octopuses in “An Octet of Octo Facts.” It takes place in French Polynesia, and one of the most interesting chapters is Chapter 3, which deals with how smart an octopus may be, and the follow-up chapter explores how one can make friends with an octopus.

Equally insightful is the segment in the book, which describes how octopuses change color and how they “put chameleons to shame,” especially since they can change their entire appearance in “one-tenth of a second.”
