Synopsis

**Limited time only: Dive into the fascinating world of SHARKS for a special price of $4.99.**

When we hear the word shark, the first image that pops up is of a large sharp-toothed animal on the hunt for its next victim—essentially a simple eating machine. In reality, sharks are a complex, highly evolved species that rarely attack humans. They may be the most misunderstood creatures on the planet. There are 400 different species of shark that roam our oceans, ranging from the gentle whale sharks to the powerful great whites to the docile bottom dwelling Wobbegong sharks. They come in all different shapes, sizes and colors, thanks to 400 million years of evolution.

In this first of its kind multi-sensory book, you will learn all you ever wanted to know about sharks with pictures, audio clips and facts. You will see these amazing animals in a new light as never before seen video footage narrated by Jeff Corwin shows different species of shark in their environments.

“I am excited to bridge the medium of TV and publishing through this Series and educate readers about species that we share this planet with. Many of these species now depend on our support for their survival and we have the power to save them from extinction,” said Jeff Corwin.

Ever since Steven Spielberg's 1975 movie, "Jaws," the word shark set off scary theme music and images of humans being devoured. Surprisingly, Jeff Corwin’s eBook makes me want to forget my water terror, don scuba-diving gear, and go shark sightseeing—no small feat for those of us with phobias about what lies beneath. -Dorri Olds, Petside.com, http://www.petside.com/article/ebook-review-jeff-corwins-sharks

"If you have a child or grandchild age 10 or above who is interested in learning about sharks, this would make an ideal gift. And, of course, it is more than suitable for adults who are interested in a readily accessible “modern-day digital dictionary” on sharks. - DEBBRA BROUILLETTE, http://www.examiner.com/review/ebook-review-jeff-corwin-s-explorer-series-sharks?cid=rss

"The e-book is simple enough to be understood by kids and yet packed with information on all kinds of sharks that will be helpful for school children, families, educators and anyone passionate about nature."- Atula, http://indiasendangered.com/jeff-corwin-launches-first-of-its-kind-ebook-series-on-wildlife/

"I've read this book and highly recommend it. It's very well written -- and you'll definitely learn something new even if you already know a lot about sharks." - Laurel Neme, http://www.laurelneme.com/

"Divers and Marine enthusiasts will love the exploration of the Oceans and its most awesome predator. --Diving enthusiast
