This is a great book for any shark enthusiast or anyone interested in shark research.

Shark Doc, Shark Lab takes the reader on a rare double journey. In part it is the (authorized) unauthorized biography of Samuel Gruber (he insisted on ‘warts and all’): his intriguing upbringing replete with hints of what was to come, his eventual transformation from enfant terrible to grand old man of marine biology. But it is the enthralling subject matter of his success—sharks—that gives this book its general appeal.
It is not just a book you’ll be supporting: funds generated from all book sales and donations will contribute towards the exciting rebuild of the infamous Shark Lab! The facility has been operating for over 25 years, and we’re eager to transform it into a modern, sustainable, stronger and energy efficient research station, and your donation will help build it!
Be part of the making of the Bimini Shark Lab II, and ensure at the same time that the important work conducted around Bimini continues for at least another 25 years!
