Psst, Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game series is pretty good at the whole human/alien differences. It's not so much that 'humans are space oddities' as it is 'there is absolutely no guarantee that humans and aliens share anything in common and here are some idea about how different from us aliens can be and while we're at it, give humans thousands of years to evolve on different planets and we may not even be the same as each other anymore' + deep thinking including an analysis of human behavior
