Allen, a National Geographic writer and author of Shadows in the Sea , debunks the popular myth of sharks as vicious, deadly, and brutal animals. Through detailed and illustrated descriptions of more than one hundred shark species, the almanac provides a comprehensive yet accessible overview of the misunderstood species. Allen recounts shark legends and tales, documents actual shark attacks, and discusses which species attack, what provokes them, and how to avoid them. Sixteen pages of photographs and scores of black-and-white illustrations accompany the text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
