How to Swim with Sharks: A Primer
By Voltaire Cousteau
This is a fascinating paper written sometime in the 1800s with some rather odd but surprisingly insightful observations that may actually have more relevance in the modern business world than in the ocean. Little is known about the author, a nineteenth century writer who died in Paris in 1812. He may have been a descendant of Francois Voltaire and an ancestor of Jacques Cousteau. Apparently this essay was written for sponge divers. Because it may have broader implications, it was translated from the French by Richard J. Johns, an obscure French scholar and Massey Professor and director of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, The Johns Hopkins University and Hospital, 720 Rutland Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21203.
