No marine predator receives as much popular attention as the great white shark, yet this fascinating creature is still not well-known in all parts of its range. Author John Hairr brings some light to the travels of this species along the Florida coastline and in the Gulf of Mexico, through historical records and interviews with those divers, fishermen, and marine biologists fortunate enough to have encountered great whites in this region. Several photos of sharks captured by marine scientists and fishermen in southeastern waters are included.

The Author has condensed virtually everything that is known about the great white sharks that are preserved in European museums in this book. Available data of 105 great white sharks from 45 institutions is presented herein. Most material consists of taxidermied specimens and jaws. Most specimens with known capture locations come from the Mediterranean Sea. The majority of specimens are very old. The jaws belonging to the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, dated from at least 1640-1660, are the oldest white shark material preserved in Europe. The largest specimens of which parts are preserved in any European museum may be those of which skeletal parts are preserved in the Museo di Anatomia Comparata of Rome, Italy, and the Museo Zoologico "La Specola" of Florence, Italy. The cast of a 5.65 m female great white shark preserved in the Muse cantonal de Zoologie of Lausanne, is the worlds largest that has been reconstructed directly from a whole specimen. The largest skin-mounted specimen is a 5.22 m female preserved in the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale of Trieste. The 1.50 m female preserved in the Senckenberg Forschungsinstitut und Naturmuseum of Frankfurt is the smallest taxidermied white shark preserved in Europe. The publication also includes a concise general account of white shark evolution, anatomy, physiology, reproduction, feeding, attacks on humans and fishery. Up-to-date literature references are included. Extensively researched, this encyclopedic account is enhanced by many photographs and drawings, that bring to life the extraordinary world of the great white shark. The ease of reading of the book and its thoroughness will make it a welcomed addition to any naturalist's library.

The Great White shark that is one of the most feared and completely misunderstood creatures in the ocean became part of my 38 years of free diving and spearfishing on the South African and Mozambique coast. I had several encounters with this creature and not only the White shark but numerous of the other shark species were encountered during this time. Since the White shark fascinated me and although I had some close encounters, I never felt that this shark was a man eater but rather a curious creature wanting to inspect the unknown. A swimming human kicking with the legs will attract a White shark and most swimmers are bitten on the legs. All of this was motivation to start a cage diving operation to introduce the White shark to the many tourists that visit South Africa. This book was written to give people an insight into part of my experiences and also better understand the Great White shark.
