    I ordered and devoured () the book earlier this week. Good, but short read with a little bit of information that was new to me. I haven’t see “The Shark Is Still Working” yet.

    One complaint is that you have to wonder about some of the accuracy of the information since when the author describes each film’s plot, he sometimes gets things slightly out of order or sometimes his descriptions are even wrong: he repeats the popular misconception that the mother shark in Jaws 3-D follows the baby in and takes vengeance for its death when people who actually pay attention to the film know that the baby is born inside the park and the mother comes out because they turn off the filtration pump that is providing her with oxygen – the death of the baby shark has nothing to do with her actions.

  3. Howdy,

    I’m about halfway through the book and so far it’s pretty good. There are some great anecdotes, photos, many good Jaws facts and it seems to cover most of the major history surrounding the Jaws “franchise”.

    As a musician, however, not to nitpick, but on page 83 in referencing the infamous scene in the music store, where “a nervous saxophone playing kid” is intimidated by Quint, the boy in question is actually playing a clarinet. In retrospect I especially dug this scene when I first saw it on laserdisc as I began playing clarinet in my elementary school band during the time Jaws was at it’s peak.

    Anyone else catch this error?
