    ...the sensors jammed into a mako?s head resemble the cockpit of an F-35 fighter jet. [presumably without the design flaws and cost overruns] The mako?s sensors are equal in sophistication to the fighter jet?s advanced systems except they are bundled in nerves, flesh, and blood....

    Months after finishing Emperors of the Deep, I'm still debating between two and three stars. Time brings clarity to many things, but apparently my reading opinions can be immune. So. I LOVE sharks. I love crazy, man-eating, fictional sharks (Jaws, Bait, Meg) And I love real life...

    It is quite remarkable that in 2019 we still don?t know much about sharks. We know little of their mating habits, their territories, their abilities,their lifespans, their value in ecology and in dollar/ecotourism terms. William McKeever goes a long way to filling in the gaps in Empe...

    A fascinating rundown on the biology and nature of sharks that gets overwhelmed by its conservationist message. Some chapters break down the history and of biology individual species into interesting tidbits and others focus on recent discoveries about shark behavior-- these suppose...

    This eye-opening book explains how fishing is threatening this keystone species. It also offers a harrowing look at some commercial fishing practices. A must read. ...

    I strongly wanted to like this book. I'm on a quest to learn about sharks and this book did provide some factual information. However, it was a difficult book to listen to for a number of reasons: 1) The narration style was like a sleepy bedtime story. 2) There were a number of mis...

    This was only OK; I mean, it's fine for a newcomer, but it's not the best general book on shark science and shark conservation issues (that would be Demon Fish, by Juliet Eilperin), and the science and policy issues won't be eye-opening for people who follow ocean or fisheries issues. ...

    Rated 2.5/5. I think a lot of my issues with this book stem from the fact that I'm not the right reader. Sharks are my favorite animals, especially hammerheads and great whites. I've read so much about them and watched lots of shows and documentaries about sharks. This book might b...

    This book was great, McKeever has a bighearted love of sharks which shines through in his writing. For me lots of nonfiction gets too technical and forgets the simple joy of learning about the natural world but McKeever packed this book with lots of interesting facts and sheer enthusia...

    The problem with this book is that it requires the reader to pull their head out of the sand. It's tough to read about the devastation of many Shark species. It may even be worse to read man's inhumanity to man. There's reading for enjoyment, and there's reading to inform oneself. unf...

    ...the sensors jammed into a mako?s head resemble the cockpit of an F-35 fighter jet. [presumably without the design flaws and cost overruns] The mako?s sensors are equal in sophistication to the fighter jet?s advanced systems except they are bundled in nerves, flesh, and blood....

    Months after finishing Emperors of the Deep, I'm still debating between two and three stars. Time brings clarity to many things, but apparently my reading opinions can be immune. So. I LOVE sharks. I love crazy, man-eating, fictional sharks (Jaws, Bait, Meg) And I love real life...

    It is quite remarkable that in 2019 we still don?t know much about sharks. We know little of their mating habits, their territories, their abilities,their lifespans, their value in ecology and in dollar/ecotourism terms. William McKeever goes a long way to filling in the gaps in Empe...

    A fascinating rundown on the biology and nature of sharks that gets overwhelmed by its conservationist message. Some chapters break down the history and of biology individual species into interesting tidbits and others focus on recent discoveries about shark behavior-- these suppose...

    This eye-opening book explains how fishing is threatening this keystone species. It also offers a harrowing look at some commercial fishing practices. A must read. ...

    I strongly wanted to like this book. I'm on a quest to learn about sharks and this book did provide some factual information. However, it was a difficult book to listen to for a number of reasons: 1) The narration style was like a sleepy bedtime story. 2) There were a number of mis...

    This was only OK; I mean, it's fine for a newcomer, but it's not the best general book on shark science and shark conservation issues (that would be Demon Fish, by Juliet Eilperin), and the science and policy issues won't be eye-opening for people who follow ocean or fisheries issues. ...

    Rated 2.5/5. I think a lot of my issues with this book stem from the fact that I'm not the right reader. Sharks are my favorite animals, especially hammerheads and great whites. I've read so much about them and watched lots of shows and documentaries about sharks. This book might b...

    This book was great, McKeever has a bighearted love of sharks which shines through in his writing. For me lots of nonfiction gets too technical and forgets the simple joy of learning about the natural world but McKeever packed this book with lots of interesting facts and sheer enthusia...

    The problem with this book is that it requires the reader to pull their head out of the sand. It's tough to read about the devastation of many Shark species. It may even be worse to read man's inhumanity to man. There's reading for enjoyment, and there's reading to inform oneself. unf...

    Love anything about animals. Can't wait to get my hands on this! ...

    I received this book through a goodreads giveaway. It was a very good read on a topic that I had not thought a lot about previously. Does read a little preachy at points but a great read. ...

    Excellent Great read about one of the most fascinating animals in the ocean and their struggles to survive in the anthropocene. ...

    NF Science 295 pages Very informative and thought provoking. An enjoyable journey into the sharks world. ...

    This eye-opening book explains how fishing is threatening this keystone species. It also offers a harrowing look at some commercial fishing practices. A must read. ...

    I strongly wanted to like this book. I'm on a quest to learn about sharks and this book did provide some factual information. However, it was a difficult book to listen to for a number of reasons: 1) The narration style was like a sleepy bedtime story. 2) There were a number of mis...

    This was only OK; I mean, it's fine for a newcomer, but it's not the best general book on shark science and shark conservation issues (that would be Demon Fish, by Juliet Eilperin), and the science and policy issues won't be eye-opening for people who follow ocean or fisheries issues. ...

    Rated 2.5/5. I think a lot of my issues with this book stem from the fact that I'm not the right reader. Sharks are my favorite animals, especially hammerheads and great whites. I've read so much about them and watched lots of shows and documentaries about sharks. This book might b...

    This book was great, McKeever has a bighearted love of sharks which shines through in his writing. For me lots of nonfiction gets too technical and forgets the simple joy of learning about the natural world but McKeever packed this book with lots of interesting facts and sheer enthusia...

    The problem with this book is that it requires the reader to pull their head out of the sand. It's tough to read about the devastation of many Shark species. It may even be worse to read man's inhumanity to man. There's reading for enjoyment, and there's reading to inform oneself. unf...

    Love anything about animals. Can't wait to get my hands on this! ...

    I received this book through a goodreads giveaway. It was a very good read on a topic that I had not thought a lot about previously. Does read a little preachy at points but a great read. ...

    Excellent Great read about one of the most fascinating animals in the ocean and their struggles to survive in the anthropocene. ...

    NF Science 295 pages Very informative and thought provoking. An enjoyable journey into the sharks world. ...

    ...the sensors jammed into a mako?s head resemble the cockpit of an F-35 fighter jet. [presumably without the design flaws and cost overruns] The mako?s sensors are equal in sophistication to the fighter jet?s advanced systems except they are bundled in nerves, flesh, and blood....

    It is quite remarkable that in 2019 we still don?t know much about sharks. We know little of their mating habits, their territories, their abilities,their lifespans, their value in ecology and in dollar/ecotourism terms. William McKeever goes a long way to filling in the gaps in Empe...
