Fun to read...cautionary tale...but optimistic,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water (Hardcover)
Truly entertaining stories that accomplish what few books of this type do: provides a stern warning without attempting to frighten. The book takes a hard look at some very dire situations but also provides some specific examples of places around the globe that have figured out an answer. Charles Fishman has crafted an impressionist painting that can be seen as a business book, a political book, a human drama, or a primer on the science and economics of water. The book takes the reader on a worldwide tour, from the splashy hotels on the Vegas strip to the poorest slums of India and lots of places in between.
No matter your expectations, this book will exceed them.
