The chapter of white shark evolutionary relationships is older and not in line with some of the latest paleontological relationships drawing a direct line of descent between Isurus (recently reassigned Charcharodon) hastalis and Charcharodon charcharias but it is always good to see both sides of a debate and the rest of the information is great.
The only thing that makes this book a little inaccessible is the fact that is geared for academic use and research. It is not a book written for the masses, such as Ellis and McCosker's 'The Great White Shark', another excellent book on the subject. But if it is depth you are looking for, Klimley and Ainley & Co. provide it. This book is not to missed by serious students of the GW.
