Think like you've got nine brains, feel like you've got three hearts, and hug as though you have eight arms.

Wisdom begins in wonder: and there is no creature so weird and wonderful as the octopus. Wise, compassionate, strong yet adaptable - and with Houdini-like vanishing tricks - octopuses are the most fascinating creatures on the planet. They provide a masterclass in self-care and there is so much we can learn from them. With the help of Weird Is Beautiful you will discover:

  • When to be strong, and when to be flexible
  • How to sift through the flotsam and jetsam of your life to find the pearls you should cling to
  • How camouflage can be self-care, but when you should let your true colours shine
  • How to multi-task, even when you don't have eight arms
  • When to allow the currents of the ocean to sweep you along, and when to stick your tentacles to the rocks and resist
  • How to live wild, weird and free

Who said life above water can't sparkle?
