‘Tim Flannery scores again, diving into the murky myth-filled waters surrounding the world's biggest predator, and surfacing with a breathless true story stuffed with astounding facts and personal experience.’
*Lucy Cooke, author of Bitch and The Unexpected Truth about Animals*

‘Big Meg is big fun! It's packed to the gills with gobsmacking facts, insightful conjecture, and personal observation from two world-class scientists and explorers…a megaladon of delight for any shark-lover!’
*Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus*

‘Flannery is a writer who sneezes at political correctness and charges into the densely land-mined territory of the biological determinants of human behaviour.’
*Washington Post on The Climate Cure*

‘Written in easy-to-understand language and he sets out a positive path for this planet’s future.'
*Weekly Times on Sunlight and Seaweed*


‘The extraordinary story of a fascinating piece of natural history.’
*Qantas Magazine*

‘[Big Meg] presents some gripping insights into the brilliant detective work carried out by a whole range of scientific experts…exemplary in the way it draws clear lines between speculation, fact and fiction in a way that any lover of good detective stories would appreciate. Above all, the authors’ passion for their subject matter is contagious. If you have little interest in fossils and sharks when you start this book, you are in danger of becoming an enthusiastic bore on the subject when you have finished it.’

‘The Flannerys communicate the science with the fidelity of seasoned palaeontologists without losing the breathless wonder of a seven-year-old talking about sharks at the dinner table…A fascinating read.’
*Saturday Paper*

‘A compelling history…Big Meg both entertains and informs.’
*Newtown Review of Books*
