The Shark, Nature’s Masterpiece is a book based on the personal experiences of author-biologist, R. D. Lawrence. “Sharks aren’t very lovable,” agrees Lawrence, who has been messing about with them since he was a nine-year-old boy in Spain exploring the marine life of the Mediterranean. He takes the reader on a fascinating and frightening trip, to observe the true terror of the deep, the shark. Through his eyes, we follow the shark during its daily activities, from searching for food to the ritualistic time of mating. The book is laden with wit and high intensity action which will thrill even the pickiest of readers. One can learn and be entertained at the same time.
