About this book

There are few species that strike such fear into humans as the great white shark. And yet this fearsome predator is also greatly threatened by human activity. Moreover, its seemingly random attacks can be shown to follow quite definite and understandable patterns of behaviour. Based on years of observing and studying great whites, White Sharks: Magnificent, Mysterious and Misunderstood is an original contribution towards understanding the behaviour and habits of this much-feared and greatly misunderstood species. Illustrated throughout with magnificent images of white sharks, often in spectacular aerial breaches, White Sharks: Magnificent, Mysterious and Misunderstood is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about the health of our marine environment and understanding White shark behaviour.

"I have spent many days at sea with Dirk photogrdahing Great Whites. His fascination tor this magniticent predator, coupled with his dedication and hard work, have produced a truly amazing book!"
- Michel Zoghzoghi, author and photographer

"This is an amazing book that encapsulates so many aspects of Great White behaviour and portrays these sharks as the awesome creatures they really are."
- Kim Maclean, Sharklady Adventures

"Fresh, informative and educational with great images, Dirk Schmidt's sequel to his first book, Great Whites of False Bay, is a positive book that will have you wanting to see them up close and personal."
- Rob Lawrence, African Shark Eco-Charters
