Science Friday: Shark Week

After more than 25 years of Shark Week, you might think America would be losing interest in all things shark. Sharknado alone just screams that things have "jumped the shark," so to speak. Instead Sharknado has spawned its own franchise of campy films.

Despite what Hollywood might tell us, your average shark faces more danger from humans than we do of being attacked by a shark. Still, Jaws and Sharknado have their own appeal. With that in mind, we've put together a short list of books and DVDs mixing the educational and the entertaining.

If you're looking to swim with the sharks, we recommend checking out:
Soul Surfer: a true story of faith, family, and fighting to get back on the board by Bethany Hamilton, Sheryl Berk, & Rick Bundschuh

Surviving the Shark: how a brutal great white attack turned a surfer into a dedicated defender of sharks by Jonathan Kathrein, Margaret Kathrein, David McGuire, & Wallace Nichols

Sharks of the World by Leonard Compagno, Marc Dando, & Sarah Fowler

Shark Girl by Kelly Bingham
