A Global View of Water

I highly recommend Gleick's book to anyone who is interested in freshwater statistics on a regional, countrywide, or global basis. As a former state-certified water testing laboratory owner and Director, water researcher, and water book author, Water Voices from Around The World; The Holy Order of Water: Healing the Earth's Waters and Ourselves - I can personally vouch for the usefulness of this publication as a tool for grasping trends about freshwater and the future of our civilization and all life on Earth. Over the many years of the Pacific Institute's publication of this biennial report - the information it presents becomes more valuable with each edition as we come to terms with a rapidly growing water crisis.

Good shape

This product took a while to come in the mail, but when I received it, it looked brand new.

A gem for water studies

This is the first time I have seen "The World's Water" a bienniall report on the state of the planet's freshwaters and I have found what a gem of information it is. The individual essays on concrete aspects of freshwater in the world today refer to matters that are critical and current. The tables and statistics at the end of the book are up to date references that are extremely useful to gauge the state of freshwater use and abuse in all regions of the world, an unvaluable resource for local activism anywhere in our planet. Simply put, an indispensable book for anyone with interest in freshwater.

The latest information on this topic - a must have

A readable survey of the current thinking on water resources. Especially valuable is the detailed index provided to past volumes, which are not at all redundant to the current volume.
