In The Shark Almanac, Thomas B. Allen explains the facts, myths, and misconceptions about these amazing animals. Although sharks have no bones, their sandpapery skin is composed of toothlike "denticles," complete with dentine and pulp canals containing nerves and blood vessels. When the USS Indianapolis was torpedoed in the Pacific during World War II after delivering the atomic bomb, 850 surviving crewmen were preyed upon by sharks - and only 318 came home.

Ellis paintings are awesome, the text way informative, a Must Have for the Sharkophile !!! The prologue battle between swordfish and shark mesmerizing. This book was written about the time Jaws came out so a time capsule of real shark people. Also documentation of the first Megamouth specimen at publication.

I wish people would focus more on learning about these creatures than fishing them out of the ocean and killing them. They have been part of this world for 300 million years, a lot longer than man is likely to be around. They are such interesting, beautiful creatures, and, only a fraction of the 300 + species are so-called man eaters. The color plates in this book are absolutely outstanding. Richard Ellis is a genius in depicting the shark, and, its surrounding environment. If you have an interest in nature, or, in sharks, try this book. I purchased the hardback version of this book in 1975, and, I consider it to be one of my prized possessions. I believe a new hardback version, today, would cost $300. It would be well worth it.
There is also a Richard Ellis 'Book of Whales', another treat for the eyes, and, the brain.

good book

This book does not have many pictures, but it does have many, many fascinating stories from researchers who studied sharks. These are real life adventures and keep me glued to the pages at times. I bought this for my nephew, but now I am hooked. Many of the real-life tales are written in the first person as one would write in a diary. Fascinating!! It is not written for a young child, but for teenagers and older.

Ellis is one of my favorite authors and this book is one of the reasons. It's well written and as usual, his illustrations are beautiful. A great choice for anyone who enjoys reading about these amazing fish.

Keep looking as there are better books out there. The material seems a bit dated. I gave it to me local thrift store, and bought "The Best Book of Sharks" instead.
