About this book

Benchley, author of Jaws, turns from fiction to fact as he shares his dramatic real-life experiences on and under the sea and offers advice on how to stay safe in the ocean. He describes the many types of sharks, and the few that pose a genuine threat to man, what is and what is not known about shark behaviour, the odds against an attack, and how to reduce these odds.
