I absolutely loved this book! I've read a few of Peter Matthiessen's books and have enjoyed them immensely, but this one was fantastic. It gave me an insight into the pioneering days of underwater documentary making and the fearsome mystique surrounding the great white, but this story is as much about the characters involved as it is about the great shark they are chasing. Serious, humorous, descriptive, informative and always gripping. A real page turner.
