The year 2012 was such an amazing year for me! Not only did I get to a chance to write and edit the first ever eBook in Jeff’s Explorer Series on sharks, I also got to swim with a shark (a docile white-tip reef shark) in the Galapagos islands. To top it off, I got to meet with Jeff Corwin himself. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined that I would one day write a book in collaboration with my idol. Dreams do come true folks!
Jeff’s Explorer Series: SHARKS gives readers a rare glimpse of the mysterious world of the top predators in our marine ecosystems. Sharks have been on our planet for more than 400 million years, and have even survived mass extinctions. Today, they are facing their biggest threat: humans. Due to increasing hunting for their fins for shark fin soup in Asian markets, pollution and habitat destruction, many shark species are facing an uphill battle and are struggling to survive.
We can all make a difference in helping these beautiful creatures. Whether it’s by getting this book and sharing your knowledge with others, or helping shark conservation groups or simply going to your local aquarium with your children, you will be helping to keep these amazing animals for future generations.
Jeff’s Explorer Series is a first of its kind ebook series and a digital encyclopedia on wildlife. In this first book, you will find stunning still images of ten different species of shark accompanied by never before seen videos narrated by Jeff Corwin, and of course a wealth of information.
Praise for SHARKS
“Ever since Steven Spielberg’s 1975 movie, ‘Jaws’, the word shark set off scary theme music and images of humans being devoured. Surprisingly, Jeff Corwin’s eBook makes me want to forget my water terror, don scuba-diving gear, and go shark sightseeing—no small feat for those of us with phobias about what lies beneath.”

“If you have a child or grandchild age 10 or above who is interested in learning about sharks, this would make an ideal gift. And, of course, it is more than suitable for adults who are interested in a readily accessible ‘modern-day digital dictionary’ on sharks.”

“Great resource for parents and educators.”
–John Replogle, CEO of Seventh Generation
“Divers and Marine enthusiasts will love the exploration of the Oceans and its most awesome predator.”
“Through these multimedia sensations, Corwin’s book speaks directly to the reader about the glories of sharks. Potentially new concepts like “apex predator” are clickable, and take readers to an easy-to-digest glossary. Chapters are cleverly arranged. Concepts like the evolution of sharks are presented for young readers (ages 10 or older) in a chapter called “The Great Great Great Grandparents of Sharks.” A particularly engaging chapter offers the ability to ‘Stump Your Friends with Shark True & False.’ Each short chapter is jam-packed with valuable information.”
