About the Author

Blake Chapman grew up with a love and fascination of the ocean, but her interest in sharks was piqued when an episode on SharkWeek caught her attention. Blake completed postgraduate research on shark neuroscience, development and ecology and has also worked in aquatic animal health and husbandry. Her continuing goal is to help educate the public on sharks and shark attacks to better protect both sharks and the humans that choose to share their incredible environment.


"In Shark Attacks: Myths, Misunderstandings and Human Fear, author and shark researcher Blake Chapman deftly explores the tension between risk and human fear and the need to conserve sharks and protect the important ecological roles they play in our marine environments. A marine biologist, Chapman presents scientific information about shark biology, movement patterns, and feeding behavior. She discusses the role of fear in the way we think about sharks and the influence of the media on public perceptions. Moving first-hand accounts describe the deep and polarizing psychological impacts of shark attacks from a range of perspectives. Shark Attacks is an education in thinking through these emotive events and will help readers to navigate the controversial issues around mitigating shark attacks while conserving the sharks themselves. Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Shark Attacks is an impressively informative and highly recommended addition to both community and academic library collections, and will prove to be of special interest to students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject of sharks."--Midwest Book Review
