5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide to Fossil Shark Teeth, January 16, 2003
Finally a very comprehensive shark tooth identification book that covers over 85 species and covers them correctly. I found very few mistakes of any kind in this book when it comes to ID, nicknames, ages, localities, etc. which is almost never done! Each identified species shows accompanying photos (several of each species showing different positions usually) and is written in plain English so it can be easily understood by amateurs. Plus it's small size will enable it to be well-utilized in the field unlike most ID books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Fossil Book!!, May 23, 2002
Outstanding book!! For everyone who has asked why a book on the mighty Carcharocles megalodon hasn't been written, author Mark Renz presents this outstanding book. It covers anything and everything about MEG and is written in a light-hearted (but still scientifically sound) style. Mark Renz consulted with most of the top experts in the field while researching this one and came up with a very thorough book covering all the essentials (where and how to find teeth, what they looked like, size, shape, diet, extinction, etc.). This book also contains a lot of great artwork and a ton of detailed photos (there is even a color section in the middle that shows some world-class fossil specimens). A lot of work by a lot of people went into this book and the quality shows. This is an absolute MUST HAVE book for any MEG enthusiast or fossil collector.
