Product Description

Book Description

Over 400 terrifying accounts of shark attacks

Product Description

The biggest-ever selection of first-hand accounts and news reports of shark attacks, both recent and historical, shows how sharks are masters of the ocean and how we enter their domain at our own risk.

Think you're safe in the Med? Read about the Great Whites that thrive near holiday beaches.

Think you're safe in large groups? Read about the sinking of the USS Indianapolis in 1945 when hundreds of sailors floated for days in shark-infested waters, being picked off one-by-one.

Think you're safe at home? Read about the 69-year-old man, taking his regular evening swim, jumping off his backyard dock straight into the mouth of a bull shark.

Many more extraordinary and gruesome accounts, including the shark-boat skipper who slit open the belly of a 360-kg tiger shark only to have a human head, pelvis, and arm come tumbling out, provide horrific and moving tales of shark encounters. The courage of survivors and those who have risked their lives to save shark attack victims is truly inspirational.

Where can you find sharks? Features on different shark species with illustrations, fact boxes and maps show where they lurk around the world. Also included are a selection of full-colour photographs and special sections on the life cycle of a shark, how to avoid a shark attack and how to survive one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shark! 30 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found the book an easy read. The book contains fact pages about different types of sharks, one or two I have not heard of before. If you get fed up of reading the same sort of thing for page after page then this book is not for you. As the conditions and nature of shark attacks are almost always the same. Speaking for myself, I feel this book was worth the asking price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharks! 12 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always felt that sharks have a bad reputation through no fault of their own. Many of these attacks were simply due to the fact that a shark thought they were going after food and they bit humans. ( apart from one who had been caught up in a net and got mad!) I would certainly recommend this book for anyone.

Wow great little read detailed stories but short enough not to boar, packed with great insights into a truly amazing apex predator.
Good timing on delivery read it on the plan out too South Africa, Guess what I went there to swim with.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Mammoth Book of Shark Attacks Disappointment 29 Jan 2014
By Sky - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed. I was expecting it to be more like the first one, just updated with attacks that had happened after the first book.
It also didn't list the attacks in the back of the book like the first one. I think the author was just trying to make more money on the title.
