About this book

Leading sharkeologists David O'Doherty, Claudia O'Doherty and Mike Ahern bring you a hundred things you definitely didn't know about the oceans' most terrifying creatures. Would you ever have guessed, for example, that: the great white shark hates jazz music; a group of hammerhead sharks is called 'a toolbelt'; the reef shark can send intimidating telephone text messages with its mind.

Dancing With the Sharks was Bulgarian TV's least successful ever television show; and, the word 'shark' actually looks quite like a shark. Your knowledge of sharks is about to get a hundred facts more knowledgeable.

"Nothing says 'beach reading' more than a book about sharks." 
- The Daily Loaf
