From the Inside Flap:

vil and primitive creatures charging from the depths to attack their prey with savage ferocity, or beautiful and efficient predators? It is difficult to separate the popular myths from the truth about sharks because, quite simply, there are still considerable gaps in our knowledge of how they live.

In Shark: A Photographer's Story, Jeremy Stafford-Deitsch helps to fill some of these gaps. He presents here the results of three years' dedicated effort to record the appearance and natural behavior of as many different shark species as possible. To photograph sharks in their natural environment he journeyed from the coral atolls of the Red Sea and the South Pacific, to the vast open ocean off Hawaii and the Californian coast, and then on to Florida and the warm tropical waters of the Bahamas.

From the Back Cover:

"Shark is a definitive guide.... The encounters of photographer-diver Stafford-Deitsch explain how man approaches and respects all sharks, not just the man-eating type. Not only is the book a photographic tour of the world's shark hot spots but it gives excellent descriptive and scientific information about all types of sharks. It also serves as a handbook for divers."
