This was such a depressing read. The book follows the author and Ron Taylor as they document various ways to kill sharks for their 'Shark Hunters' documentary series. Cropp even notes the population decline of grey nurse sharks on the NSW coast as a consequence of their work. Today, the east coast population of grey nurse sharks is listed as critically endangered. As a work, I can't recommend it, other than to note how far attitudes towards sharks have progressed in the last fifty years. Not long after the book's publish date, both Taylor and Cropp committed their careers to conservation and have since received numerous honors for their work. ( )
