In this riveting true adventure tale and informative guide to the sea, master storyteller Peter Benchley drew on more than three decades of diving experience to bring us face-to-face with the array of sharks and other marine animals he and his family encountered, almost always on purpose - but sometimes by accident. Shark Life is at once a thriller and a valuable guide to being safe in, on, under, and around the sea.
As Benchley says, "The ocean is the only alien and potentially hostile environment on the planet into which we tend to venture without thinking about the animals that live there, how they behave, how they support themselves, and how they perceive us. I know of no one who would set off into the jungles of Malaysia armed only with a bathing suit, tube of suntan cream, and a book, and yet that's precisely how we approach the oceans."
No longer. Not after reading Shark Life.
