Jellyfish (and this author) are pretty darn amazing!

While I learned a lot about the jellyfish, I also learned a lot about the author and her family, which was way less interesting. Could've used a good editor.

An absolutely brilliant look into jellyfish which I knew very little about. The book combines memoir with information about jellyfish, and although some of the memoir points plod a bit (and this is only a tiny bit), her enthusiasm for trying to parse out all the information she can about jellyfish, the oceans and their future is very engaging.
