Jaws 2 Book Bundle Jaws And Shark Trouble from the Author: Peter Benchley. This eBook bundle includes two acclaimed books by Peter Benchley: Jaws, the classic suspense novel—with bonus content—that inspired the blockbuster Steven Spielberg movie, and Shark Trouble, a fascinating nonfiction chronicle of Benchley’s thrilling diving adventures and heart-stopping encounters as he met and studied sharks in their natural habitats for more than thirty years. JAWS “Powerful . . . [Benchley’s] story grabs you at once.”—The New York Times Book Review When Peter Benchley wrote Jaws in the early 1970s, he meticulously researched all available data about shark behavior. Over the ensuing decades, Benchley was actively engaged with scientists and filmmakers on expeditions around the world as they expanded their knowledge of sharks. Also during this time, there was an unprecedented upswing in the number of sharks killed to make shark-fin soup, and Benchley worked with governments and nonprofits to sound the alarm for shark conservation. He encouraged each new generation of Jaws fans to enjoy his riveting tale and to channel their excitement into support and protection of these magnificent, prehistoric apex predators. This edition of Jaws contains bonus content from Peter Benchley’s archives, including the original typed title page, a brainstorming list of possible titles, a letter from Benchley to producer David Brown with honest feedback on the movie adaptation, and vivid photos of scenes from the 1974 film production on Martha’s Vineyard. SHARK TROUBLE “A serious beach book—part real-life underwater adventure, part cautionary tale on the environment, part practical advice on staying safe on the ocean.”—USA Today In this book of true stories and life-saving advice, Benchley clarifies the myths and realities about sharks, shark attacks, and safety on the seas. He draws on more than three decades of experience in and under the sea to share exciting personal adventures with sharks, to offer intriguing facts about the sea and its wildlife, and, most important, to help readers understand the ocean and approach it with knowledge, security, and respect.
