About this book

Sharks have always fascinated people. From sea monsters drawn on the margins of old maps to the terrifying mood music of Jaws, people have often thought of sharks as unpredictable, man-eating beasts. And when a shark attacks a swimmer or surfer, leaving them dead or maimed, this fear is reinforced. But is this really an accurate view of sharks?

This book examines how sharks have been perceived throughout history, about famous shark attacks and about survivors of shark attacks. By learning about different kinds of sharks and their habits, the reader will come to respect them as a vital part of the ocean's ecosystem.
