The inspirational survival story that the Los Angeles Times calls
"a gripping account." In Surviving the Shark, Jonathan Kathrein
describes his incredible shark attack experience. The story begins
with the eerie moments just before the attack, when something
smashes into Kathrein's hand as he paddles on his board, waiting
for a wave off Stinson Beach in northern California. Realizing it
is probably a shark, Kathrein furiously tries to paddle toward
shore, where he sees some of his friends on the beach. But it is
too late, as the great white returns, slams into him, then grabs
his leg and pulls him underwater, thrashing him back and forth. How
Kathrein is able to escape and make his way to shore, despite his
horrific wounds, is nothing short of amazing. But that's just the
beginning, as he now faces months of physical and mental
rehabilitation. Gradually, with the help of his family and friends,
Kathrein makes a recovery. Today, Kathrein gives lectures on shark
conservation and avoiding shark attacks. In this book, he not only
writes of his ordeal, but also delves into shark behavior and
explains his desire to spread shark awareness. Skyhorse Publishing,
