About this item

The water coming out of your kitchen tap is four billion years old and might well have been sipped by a Tyrannosaurus rex. Rather than only three states of waterliquid, ice, and vaporthere is a fourth, molecular water, fused into rock 400 miles deep in the Earth, and thats where most of the planets water is found. Unlike most precious resources, water cannot be used up it can always be made clean enough again to drinkindeed, water can be made so clean that its toxic. Water is the most vital substance in our lives but also more amazing and mysterious than we appreciate. As Charles Fishman brings vibrantly to life in this surprising and mind-changing narrative, water runs our world in a host of awe-inspiring ways, yet we take it completely for granted.
