THE BIG THIRST A Tour of the Bitter Fights, Breathtaking Beauty, Relentless Innovation, and Big Business Driving the New Era of High-Stakes Water

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This book strings together a series of engaging stories about our relationship with water in an effort to get us to think harder about this essential and ubiquitous substance. Fishman does not predict an arid doomsday. He believes water problems—from climate change to bad municipal plumbing—are solvable if we’re willing to face them and free ourselves from "water mythology." Stephen Hoye’s voice is clear and strong, well paced and relentlessly upbeat. The anecdotal nature of the book makes it well suited for listening. This is a great place to start for those who want to begin learning about national and global water issues. F.C. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
