Shark Attacks

(2001)
Their Causes and Avoidance
A non fiction book by

 
Here is an unflinching look at the terrifying phenomenon of shark attacks from the author of The Shark Almanac.

The shark is so well adapted to its element that its existence on the planet actually predates trees. When people enter that element in increasing numbers, as they have in recent years, the results can be tragic and seemingly arbitrary.

Author Tom Allen has carefully researched all known shark incidents from all over the world. The result is the most thorough and informative book to date on the phenomenon. SHARK ATTACKS contains the harrowing personal stories of shark attack survivors, expert opinions from marine biologists, and the latest scientific studies of shark behavior. Allen's fascinating analysis explains;

* Why so many attacks occur in water less than five feet deep * Which species are killers * What triggers an attack * Behavior just before an attack * Whether shark nets increase swimmer safety levels * Environmental and seasonal conditions that contribute to an increase in attacks * Why it is better to be below a shark than above it.

This is a book for everyone who wants to read about the frightening reality of shark attacks--and to understand the myths that surround this often misunderstood creature.
