Rated 3 out of 5 by from Outdated Having been written in 1970, this book is, not surprisingly, outdated. It presents sharks as voracious man-eaters that will attack and kill a person on sight. There are also inaccuracies concerning shark biology and taxonomy. These points notwithstanding, the book is worth reading if only to see how much has been learned in the past thirty-eight years. It also contains some interesting chapters about the scientific research that was being done at the time. For those who should choose to read this book, it should be preceded or followed by a current book on the subject.
