About this book

From the Bahamas and South Africa to Shanghai, sharks are the object of obsession: film stars go big-game fishing for them and shark's fin soup is a coveted status symbol in China. Elsewhere, people and sharks exist alongside each other: surfers tolerate their presence and eco-tourists swim with them. Yet, after millions of years of the shark's evolution and survival, the human fascination with these animals may eventually lead to their extinction. In her eye-opening adventure, which criss-crosses the globe, Juliet Eilperin examines why sharks remain perhaps nature's most awe-inspiring creatures. She also explores the fascinating ways in which humans relate to the ocean's top predator.
