Discover what it’s really like to stare into the eyes of a shark – one of nature’s most terrifying creatures.

Following a year of record numbers of shark attacks, Sharks Never Sleep takes us around the world to meet shark-attack survivors, shark lovers and shark hunters, who tell us of the primal fear of being eaten alive by a wild animal, the unimaginable grief of losing a loved one and extraordinary stories of encounters with sharks.unnamed-14

In Ballina on the east coast of Australia, Darren Rogers recounts how he tried to save Japanese surfer Tadashi Nakahara, who was mauled to death by a great white shark. At Jeffreys Bay in South Africa, Mick Fanning revisits the incident that turned him into a global celebrity – the time he narrowly escaped death by punching a great white in the face during the final of one of the world’s biggest professional surfing competitions. At Jaws on the Hawaiian island of Maui, shark-attack survivor Bethany Hamilton heads into monstrous waves to surf, even after having lost her arm to a tiger shark as a 13-year-old junior surfing champion.

Sharks Never Sleep is award-winning journalist and filmmaker Brendan McAloon’s attempt to exorcise the fear with facts: true stories of encounters with sharks, those man-eating monsters of myth. Explore our complex relationship of fear and fascination with sharks by meeting scientists, conservationists and a host of eccentric characters in these gripping tales of first-hand encounters.
