      Emperors of the Deep

      From the Jaws blockbusters to Shark Week, we are conditioned to see sharks as terrifying, cold-blooded underwater predators. But as Safeguard the Seas founder William McKeever reveals, sharks are evolutionary marvels essential to maintaining a balanced ecosystem. We can learn much from sharks, he argues, and our knowledge about them continues to grow. In his groundbreaking new book, Emperors of the Deep (HarperOne), the documentarian and conservationist dispels misplaced fears and corrects common misconceptions, exploring in depth the secret lives of sharks – magnificent creatures who play an integral part in maintaining the health of the world’s oceans and ultimately the planet. McKeever goes back through time to probe the shark’s prehistoric secrets and how it has become the world’s most feared and misunderstood predator, and takes us on a pulse-pounding tour around the world and deep under the water’s surface, from the frigid waters of the Arctic Circle to the coral reefs of the tropical Central Pacific, to see sharks up close in their natural habitats. At once a deep dive into the misunderstood world of sharks and an urgent call to protect them, Emperors of the Deep celebrates this wild species that hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of the ocean – if we can prevent their extinction from climate change and human hunters.
