Q&A with Sagarin: Why Octopuses Should Run Our National Security Infrastructure
The Scientist review : “Learning from the Octopus is a paean to biomimicry and a handbook on “natural security” from an unlikely, but enlightening, source.”
The Ecologist review: “Learning from the Octopus raises interesting points about the way we respond to the ever-present risk of danger… Sagarin is right that we shouldn’t be looking to find an all-encompassing security system because it will always render us vulnerable to an enemy that can learn and change its attack."
