When we think of sharks, most of us revert to the raw terror of Jaws; but the ocean's dominant predator is far more mysterious and potent than suggested by those unexpected onslaughts of horror. Washington Post environmental reporter Juliet Eilperin traveled the world to gain insights into the importance and mythological aura of fish among seafaring people. Combining science, folklore, and on-the-spot reportage, her Demon Fish invites us to observe the strange, sometimes destructive interactions of humankind and shark off the coasts of Florida, Japan, Mexico, New Guinea, Indonesia, China, and elsewhere.
