9780810984653: Kraken: The Curious, Exciting, and Slightly Disturbing Science of Squid
From the Publisher:

The oceans are perhaps the last remaining source of profound mystery and discovery on Earth, and are as such of perennial fascination. 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. In addition to squid, both giant and otherwise, Kraken examines the equally enthralling other cephalopod species, the octopus and cuttlefish, and explores their otherworldly camouflage and bioluminescent abilities. Like Mary Roach, Mark Kurlanksy, and Susan Orlean, Wendy Williams weaves a rich narrative tapestry around her subject, drawing powerfully on the passions and discoveries of scientists, fisherman, and squid enthusiasts around the world. KRAKEN is a primarily a narrative book of pop-science, but there will be a few black and white illustrations throughout.
