About this book

A well illustrated guide to everything that is known about the great white shark, a creature feared, persecuted, yet poorly understood. Chapters cover fossil relatives, size, morphology and biology, feeding, distribution, shark attacks, and conservation.

'... entertaining and comprehensive ... magnificently illustrated [and] definitive' ... a balanced account of the biology and popular myth ... intriguing and informative to the educated layman, yet satisfying and useful to scientists.' Los Angeles Times
