Overview

Personal accounts of encounters with sharks from shark hunters, divers, biologists, and everyday swimmers who meet up with sharks either deliberately or by accident

Famous shark hunters and other adventurers speak for the first time about their dangerous encounters with these fearsome predators in this book chronicling shark attacks both on Australia's fatal shores and around the world. It records miraculous escapes as well—some so bizarre they defy belief, and some that display extraordinary courage in the face of extreme peril. The phenomenon of so-called "rogue" sharks that stalk and kill humans in numbers, in the same place, at the same time, is also investigated. With all viewpoints covered from shark hunters to conservationists, these gripping stories will both fascinate and frighten, taking the reader into the realm of creatures that have ruled the oceans with ruthless efficiency for more than 400 million years.

    Secroom, To prove you wrong

    To start you guys are stupid creating reviews to chat, insult others and top each other. If that were how that world works I would win. I agree grammar should be encouraged but the person who posted it must work on spelling and punctuation. As for the two fighting for longest review that is stupid it doesnt matter. For gods sake people stop chatting I know your probably sitting there going "Bro you broke your own rule" but I am only doing it to stop you. As for my review I did not read it but based upon the topic you posted I believe sharks are misunderstood due to our fear and lack of knowledge sharks are attracted to people only when hungry and they still only do it due to how a human looks from beneath. From below a human looks like a seal a snack to most sharks. I believe if prople studied sharkd more we could prevent attacks. Finally sharks are normally kind and i would shun any member of society who harms such fascinating and endangered beasts. P.s. I win and stop chatting use facebook or something.
