Dirk Schmidt, the author, spent countless hours with Rob Lawrence at Seal Island, False Bay. Rob, being one of the most knowledgeable people on great white sharks shared his knowledge with Dirk, as he spent more time learning more about great white sharks .

This book confronts many of the stereotypes around Great Whites, and tries to present a more rounded, complex picture of this feared apex predator.

I address not only some of the well-known facts about Great Whites, but also explore little-understood aspects of their behaviour.

 “Fresh, informative and educational with great images, Dirk Schmidt’s sequel to his first book, The Great Whites of False Bay, is a positive book that will have you wanting to see them up close and personal.’
