Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Water:
"[De Villiers] has done his homework thoroughly and brings both ecological and historical knowledge to bear in his frank criticism of how the world's water resources have been managed. . . . Thanks to de Villiers's humane tone and nimble curiosity, Water ends on a progressive note, despite all its sobering and distressing information." 
— Grist.org

"Lucid and thorough, Water is a good place to tap into this subject, vast as the spreading Sahara yet intimate as your dripping kitchen faucet."
Los Angeles Times


From the Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Marq deVilliers has, over and over, contributed to our understanding of, and appreciation for, our planet. He continues this tradition in Our Way Out, his most ambitious exploration so far. In it, he analyzes the most urgent challenges (climate change, energy, population, and more) facing humankind.
He identifies specific solutions being tested around the world - from small scale to mammoth, from lunatic to promising - for us to consider.
Although these crises are too often dealt with as though they were separate, he demonstrates that the solutions to all are intertwined - and include the changes we must make to our mindset about consumption and sustainability.
In the end, he's optimistic that there is a way out.

Format: Hardcover
I found the book full interesting and challenging ideas, however his need to insert childish attacks, which added nothing to the book and takes away from his point, makes "Our Way Out" a book not worth reading.
