    A fantastic book to understand a species not discussed that often unless you're a marine biologist or a scientist in a connected field.

I skimmed past a lot of the jellyfish detail with just enough to know they are scary and amazing, and pose potential for overpopulation dangers, and to enjoy the anecdotes about flying, diving and snorkelin...
