Recommends it for: Shark fans
An introduction book to sharks and their conflict with humanity. Written lightly, somewhat even 'for dummies' it's the ideal book to learn everything about sharks from. There's not a single evolutionary, physically or behavioral subject about sharks here that goes unexplored.
I highly recommend this book to animal and shark lovers.

It's the most comprehensive book on sharks there is. It tells you everything about them. 100% recommend it.

A few errors here and there, but overall very informative with quality images. A good read for a beginner shark enthusiast.

Fascinating information about sharks! Detailed drawings, photographs and other means of showing us more about these creatures. A good place to start if you're interested in sharks since it gives you an overview of many aspects of being a shark- reproducing, feeding, types, sizes, skin, organs, and many more!

Very good, very comprehensive book on sharks. There are a lot of pictures and charts, and all the description is in terms that anyone could understand. I recommend it for anyone who has been interested and learning about sharks their whole lives, or someone who is just getting started.

I like this book other than the fact that they made just a few mistakes. They arent major but when you label a picture you should make sure you label with the correct species of shark.
