Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Maniguet, a diver and shark specialist, discusses man-eating sharks, chronicles numerous shark attacks and offers advice on how to avoid them. Photos. (Jan.)
Booknews
The text contains substantial amounts of information about shark behavior--what is known and what needs more research. On the cover is a warning that the book contains "disturbing photographs"; and, indeed, the weak-stomached should steer clear of the photos of dismembered body parts and huge gaping wounds. First published in French in 1991 (Editions Robert Laffont, S.A., Paris). HarperCollins holds the copyright to the English translation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
