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.”
“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.”
