This book is chalked full of great color and b/w pictures, descriptions, and drawings.  It details collecting locations and offers interesting conjecture of the evolution of the most feared predator ever, the Megalodon.  There are many other types of prehistoric shark teeth as well as other fossils included in this book.  With help from several experts in the field, author Mark Renz has done a fine job of  bringing to life these prehistoric predators though a conversational yet informative writing style.   Great pictures, plus great writing makes this a MUST HAVE book for any shark tooth enthusiast!
