The true story of the Half-Blood Prince who has become a fullblooded actor and level-headed young adult

Danielle Radcliffe went from shy schoolboy to the world's most famous boy wizard overnight. Just 10 when he won the iconic role of Harry Potter, Daniel has often had to beat his own demons as he met the challenge of combining childhood with being a child star. No one could have envisaged just how huge Harry Potter would be, or how dramatically life-changing it would be for the little boy teachers once wrote off as having no prospects. Daniel won the part out of a staggering 16,000 boys who auditioned. Now it is hard to believe that anyone but him could have ever played the role. Daniel became a film legend before he was out of his teens. In a bid to detach himself from being simply the boy with a wand, he bravely took on projects which were often controversial and challenging—but never dull. His courage at diversifying has won him a new army of fans. Now established as a leading young actor with a fame that is literally worth a fortune, having managed to conquer drinking issues, he is wiser, happier, and looking forward to a future of fulfilled dreams and ambition.

Synopsis:

A fascinating look at how increased human contact has impacted shark attacks

Sharks are intriguing and beautiful creatures but they can also be deadly. As humans have explored the world's oceans and exploited them for tourism and recreation, we have found ourselves coming into contact with more and more sharks. And the outcome can be fatal. From the Seychelles to South Africa, and Australia to North America, tourists, divers, and surfers have seemingly found themselves under increased threat from unprovoked shark attacks. Fatal attacks have occurred in locations that were previously thought to be safe, and in late 2010 the Egyptian resort of Sham el-Sheikh was rocked by an incredible five shark attacks in a matter of weeks. But are sharks really ruthless, vicious killers, or are they simply reacting to humans invading their habitat? Has the number of shark attacks increased in recent years? What can be done to prevent them? All these questions and more are answered in this fascinating book.
