Water is literally vital to life on earth. This book is a comprehensive survey of the (simplified) chemistry and physics of water and its extraordinary properties. It surprised me that it is not an unlimited resource and that fresh water is a limited quantity. I found it easy to read, well written and I will read it again.
I found a reference to this book in one Oxford's ' very short introduction' series and bought it to fill in what I felt was a lacuna in my knowledge. I was not disappointed. In its direct style, there is information in this book to satisfy the interest of any body and it can be accessed even by simply dipping in. From those who prefer the history of science, to those whoe want to understand the scource our world's weather systems an introduction is here. And I even hd a brief insight into the "lattice theory of water" that I believe homeopaths invoke to explain the efficacy of their preparations which last saw an active molecule many dilutions ago. Buy it, read it and keep it on your bookshelf
A very interesting and in-depth look into the many different aspects of Water. The book is filled with fascinating insights into the special properties of water. The book covers everything from a fairly detailed look at the physics behind the formation of Hydrogen and Oxygen in the early cosmos to the biological aspects of Water and life with plenty of chemistry, history and geography thrown in for good measure.
