A riveting book on the latest discoveries on sharks. Greenpeace calls it a “must-read” for those interested in the oceans.
In the new book, Emperors of the Deep: Sharks – The Ocean’s Most Mysterious, Most Misunderstood, and Most Important Guardians (July 2019; HarperOne, ISBN 978-0062932990, PRICE $25.99; Hardcover), author and Conservationist William McKeever is on a mission to change everyone’s views of the mysterious creatures of the deep. The book takes readers on a pulse-pounding journey 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 dispel the narrative about sharks (from Jaws to “Shark Week,)” which claims they’re terrifying underwater predators. McKeever says, “Sharks are unequivocally essential to maintaining a balanced ecosystem. When these important apex predators are removed from the ocean, the effect on reefs, seagrass and all the marine ecosystems is catastrophic for generations to come.”
A portion of William McKeever’s book royalties will be donated to Greenpeace
