Water - The Book

Water - The book

Available in illustrated Hard Cover and E-Book, Water traces the history of this life-giving substance from its instrumental role in the birth of our solar system through to becoming the source, matrix and medium for all life on Earth.

From bubbling forest brooks to majestic oceans, from underground sinkholes to the highest waterfalls, Water takes the reader on an epic journey across the myriad of awe-inspiring forms in which H2O resides on our blue planet. The book examines how water creates our weather and climate, from the greatest flood to the harshest drought. It analyses how human civilisation has been shaped by water, its pervasive influence evident in our agriculture, our industry and even our recreation.


Interwoven throughout the book is an examination of the intricate effect of climate change on water. The book explores the complex challenges, such as pollution, sustainability and water scarcity that face humanity, and which lead many to believe that access to water will be one of the defining issues of the next century. Water finishes with a detailed look at the possible solutions for current and future generations.
