Wow... this was a really fascinating book on a topic that could have been a little dry. Well, maybe not "dry" exactly... I enjoyed it though. I was particularly interested in the chapters dealing with other countries' habits and culture around water.

Amy Sounds interesting. Heehee, "dry"!

Cleokatra It was a good book. I think it will change the way you look at water. I like that the author talks about things that we are doing right in addition to the gloom-and-doom stuff... for instance the benefits of using "gray water" for outdoor uses instead of wasting drinking water.
