If you are interested in the science of sharks, there is plenty of information. If not, you could skim those parts and concentrate on the accounts of the attacks. I should not admit this, but that was how I read Moby Dick in college. I didn't really care about the marine biology of whales. One thing I will say is that Capuzzo manages to develop the shark as a true main character in the narrative parts of the story.
We also have a number of other books in the TA library about sharks and shark attacks including the following:
- Jaws by Peter Benchley
- Shark by Miranda MacQuitty (597.3/Mac)
- Shark Attacks: Their Causes and Avoidance by Thomas B. Allen (597.3/All)
