    The Encyclopedia of Sharks

    I rented this book from the city library, and I was satisfied with the information it contains. It has basically everything you need to know about sharks. Also includes many photos of different species of sharks and illustrations of their body systems. Great for anyone!

    Encyclopedia of Errors

    I was shocked at how many errors, grammatical and otherwise, I found in this book when it claims to be an encyclopedia. It appears as though the editors of the book knew nothing about sharks and as such did not catch the errors in fact and image inherent in this book. As an amateur shark expert, I am upset by the amount of speculation presented in this book as fact, and many of the images are mislabeled. I can clearly tell that the picture the book claims is a tiger shark is actually a blue shark in multiple occurrences. Also, many of the images are obviously either digitally created or enhanced or fake sharks, which is just plain unprofessional. While I have to admit that this book would not lead the reader to believe things about sharks that are wholly untrue or damaging to the relationship between human and shark, I am appalled at the amount of inaccurate or misleading information presented that anyone who knows anything about sharks would be very quick to doubt. I highly recommend avoiding this book and instead purchasing a different, more credible and complete shark book.
