“The Fear Beneath“
The Fear Beneath – in-depth reader on sharks
Sharks are fascinating but misunderstood animals, often reduced to the role of horror movie predator. To the author, sharks are frightening and beautiful at the same time and epitomize the unknown. Human ingenuitiy grants us the illusion of complete control: from atoms and genes to the destiny of our planet. This makes it especially humbling that these large fish put us back in our place. A shark will eat a human, regardless of whether the human considers themself higher in the food chain. For the shark, food is food.
The non-fiction book “The Fear Beneath” is Christian Kemper’s first English publication on sharks. Previously, his two titles have only been available in German. Many requests from English-speaking friends inspired him to make his books more widely available. This book contains the best material from his first two books and articles. The readers will learn many fascinating facts such as how few shark attacks actually happen during an average year. The book also raises awareness of the need for conservation as most people are unaware of how much shark populations have dwindled.
