"Moynihan's book is not merely an attractive and readable descriptive synthesis, but an acute commentary on the development of current theory, opening new areas and refreshingly examining cherished models." -- W. John Smith, University of Pennsylvania

This book summarizes the state of our knowledge about communication in cephalopods, including squids, cuttlefishes, octopuses, and related forms, and assesses the comparative and theoretical implications of what we know.
