Dr. Beach's Survival Guide by Stephen P. Leatherman
Book DescriptionDesigned for beachgoers, this guide is filled with surprising information about how to avoid dangers both large and small while at the beach. Stephen Leatherman (otherwise known as Dr Beach) introduces the gamut of beach hazards, from sharks to rip currents to jellyfish, revealing which dangers should be of greatest concern and how best to minimize their risks. His scientifically sound advice, interspersed with facts and anecdotes, should make this work a useful reference for the travellers and vacationers who visit the ocean shore every year. There are practical answers to these intriguing questions and more: which US beach records the most shark attacks each year?; which species of shark is the most dangerous to people?; why are rip currents the most deadly beach threat?; how can rips be avoided?; what should you do if caught in a rip?; can lightning strikes at the beach be predicted?; is a stingray dangerous?; when is ocean water pollution likely to be worst?; what types of waves are threatening and how can they be detected?; what is the danger of a red tide?; and how can swimmers avoid contact with jellyfish?
