A great book for shark fans like myself. There is not really any info on sharks but on there victems. A truly frighting read for you here the victems words of "let me die" or "help, shark." Just to let you know the book is not a novel but newspaper summeries. Still its a great read on the terror of shark attack victems.

I expected a more comments-supported summary of shark attacks all over the world. It is not included the famous attack on Albert Kogler, San Francisco, 1959. Only a collection of newspaper notes.

The section on Acapulco was particularly interesting. If you check on the Internet, you won't really find any information which indicates that shark attacks do occur there. However, from reading this book, you might want to think twice about swimming too far out from the beach. The author suggests that there is a conspiracy of silence from the Acapulco politicians all the way down to the people working on the beaches. Shark attacks are bad for business, so they try their best to keep a lid on them. Yikes!!!

I love this book. It is really a bunch of newspaper articles on shark attacks with a little background information on each one. If you are someone who studies sharks, you won't like it. If you are like me, a person who reads the newspaper and is intrigued by the horror of the thought of getting attacked, you will not be able to put it down. I think it's just fascinating.

I thought it was going to be a first hand account on the attack, instead it's just news paper clippings

I was disappointed, because the shark attack on a girl named Beverly Jo was omitted. The attack occured in the latter part of May, 1956 off of the coast of San Fransciso. The girl was bitten in one of her legs. I was hopeing to find the detail story.

This book reads quickly. It's a collection of newspaper articles. Although I was hoping the book would talk more about the size and behavior of the attacking sharks, the wording is quick, much like the attacks.
