*1st of all this book is not an actual story... just saying. I found this book really interesting and ienjoyed the mishaps and anectdotes mixed in with actual imformation on all dangers, and beauties, of the sea, from riptides to eels to orcas and of course sharks. This collection of tales is nicely catorgerized by creatures so you can find info on whatever you fancy at the moment. The true stories are often charming, shocking, nerve racking, fummy, or all of the above. I would not reccomend reading straight throigh and expecting developing charachters amd such, it is not in chronological order, its organized by critters. Overall great! *anyone else find it delightfully ironic that the writer of the infoumous shark bashing horror "JAWS" has written a conservational book about the shark people asumed he feared... maybe he felt guilty amd this is damage control cause he loves sharks
