“100 Facts About Sharks” just in time for Shark Week! Top summer beach read

Leading sharkeologists David O’Doherty, Claudia O’Doherty and Mike Ahern bring you a hundred things you definitely didn’t know about the oceans’ most terrifying creatures.

Comedian David O’Doherty is the co-author of a brand-new book whose timing is  impeccable, dovetailing with Discovery's 25th annual Shark Week celebration.

“100 Facts About Sharks” is David’s second book, following the successful “100 Facts About Pandas.” This perfect beach read was written with Claudia O’Doherty and illustrator Mike Ahern, as the tongue in cheek collection of "facts" offers information about sharks which may open eyes, then make them roll.

 

Here’s a little about the book from the official release:

    Leading sharkeologists David O’Doherty, Claudia O’Doherty and Mike Ahern bring you a hundred things you definitely didn’t know about the oceans’ most terrifying creatures.

Would you ever have guessed, for example, that:

...the great white shark hates jazz music;
...a group of hammerhead sharks is called ‘a toolbelt’;
...the reef shark can send intimidating telephone text messages with its mind;
...Dancing With the Sharks was Bulgarian TV’s least successful ever television show;
...and the word ‘shark’ actually looks quite like a shark.

The fun tome engages everyone who adores shark season and this lazy, hazy time of year, where the number of real shark attacks skyrockets thanks to lots of people frolicking in the surf looking like big, blubbery seals (thanks to the obesity epidemic).

You can order it directly from Amazon

There’s more about the book at the official website, which is here.
