Review: Great White Shark

User Review  - Andrew - Goodreads

This was an excellent book, devoted to all (known at the time) of the Great White Shark. Excellent photos, as well - coffee table size makes it awkward to hold, but helps with the display of the photos. Read full review

Ellis's writing on sea creatures is as diverting as it is instructive; his insatiable curiosity about their habits and habitats has carried him to the ends of the earth.
