From the Back Cover:

Anyone who's ever been in the ocean has thought it: Are there sharks swimming here too? But people's fear far outweighs the danger. Acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon sets the record straight. Sharks are serious predators, but more people are killed in car accidents during a single holiday weekend than have been killed by sharks in the past hundred years.
