Few creatures in the world of nature are more feared, more talked about, and less known that the great white shark. On beaches around the globe, whispers of shark attack are enough to calm the sands, yet the real threat is remarkably remote.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into your science stacks comes a second major title on ``the most frightening'' but ``most misperceived creature on earth,'' the great white shark. Like Richard Ellis and John E. McCosker's Great White Shark ( LJ 12/91), this book foregoes the tabloid stories of the great white's occasional use of people as an entree and concentrates purely on the scientific. Essentially a lengthy report on a series of experiments conducted by Cousteau and his team aboard the research vessel Alcyone off the coast of Australia, this work uses the same formula as those of Cousteau's father (e.g., Jacques Coustea: Whales , LJ 12/88). The text is accompanied by many simply gorgeous photographs of the awesome white that will make you glad you live on land. (These fish are so scary-looking they're afraid of each other!). Like Ellis and McCosker's title, this book offers enough scientific data to please the armchair ichthyologist but is also accessible to the casual reader. Cousteau and the great white shark are a winning combination that will be popular in all public libraries.-- Michael Rogers, ``Library Journal''

Artbook publishing house Harry N. Abrams directs its always first-rate production process to the always attention-getting great whites as Cousteau and Richards tell the story of the Cousteau team's extensive 1989 investigation of the sharks off the south coast of Australia, accompanied by some 120 color photographs made by the team from underwater and above. 9.25x12". Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Ray Olson
The Cousteau name and the Abrams imprint make this not just Oh-God!-another-shark-book. Based upon an expedition headed by Jacques-Yves' son Jean-Michel, one that doubtless will be seen soon on PBS stations across America, the volume's more homogeneous than most of its predecessors. It records not precis of many shark encounters and studies but the events and observations of a single expedition better equipped technologically and better informed than virtually any previous such foray. What's more, and what sells the book, it reproduces the work of the expedition's photographers, brilliant underwater specialists all. Printing the pictures with exquisite clarity and attention to a volumewide color scheme, Abrams also displays them beautifully and within an overall layout design that is the last word in good taste. So although the shelf of shark tomes groans, add this one to it. In fact, consider it the first book to give a shark-infatuated patron.
