Whether you think sharks are scary or beautiful, Hoyt has a book for you. Weaving together details from the latest scientific research about sharks, giant squid, dragonfish, and the huge tube worms, clams and tiny microbes of the deep-sea vents, he describes how the bottom of the sea is inhabited not by vicious monsters but by diverse species of pale starfish and mud-eating sea cucumbers.
