From the Back Cover:

Biggest of all fish and the best-equipped for hunting, sharks live in every ocean. They are threatened by no natural predator except the killer whale. Built like torpedoes, they possess an extraordinary physiology that includes eight incredibly developed sensory organs and a set of jaws whose extensibility, power, and teeth are unrivaled in the animal kingdom. Their tenacity for staying alive is impressive. Gaffed, shot, harpooned, and ripped open, they are still capable of moving about and tearing apart their victims. And they have existed unchanged for 350 million years.Little wonder why sharks are the stuff of movies, books, and nightmares. Little wonder that through the fear that surrounds them, fact has been confused with fiction.The Jaws of Death is a book that documents the truth about sharks and - through the examination of case histories - about gruesome shark attacks on man. Also read about how sharks are essential to the equilibrium of the marine biotope and how sharks are the only animals that have undergone virtually no evolutionary changes in millions of years. Learn about the fascinating history and physiology of sharks, and discover the many uses of sharks in science and medicine.Other species are included as well: Is the viciousness of the piranha myth or reality? And what of the killer whale and crocodiles? And are barracudas innocent animals unjustly accused - or are they, too, jaws of death? (6 X 9, 352 pages, color photos, maps, illustrations, diagrams)
