'Making one car consumes 400,000 litres of water; in Brazil, 22 glasses of water are needed to produce one glass of orange juice. Alongside such profligacy, 6,000 children die each day for lack of clean water. The book speaks powerfully of the need to address such inequalities and to relearn what our ancestors knew: that "the water cycle ties us all to one another as well as to Mother Nature".'

'[A] very informative little primer on water issues...an excellent, useful and very readable book which helps to clarify a subject not much talked about in political circles.'
John Green, Morning Star
