The Big Thirst

By Charles Fishman
Free Press

The focus of this book is society's relationship with water. New York Times best-selling author Charles Fishman states that while water is the most vital substance in our lives it is something that has been taken for granted for too many years.
He then takes readers on journey through water-obsesses hotels in Las Vegas to the parched Australian outback to water being used to produce iPhones and Blackberries. He discusses the past of people thinking it was free to the new era of water issues facing nations today.
He then details how there is still no reason for a global water crisis as there is more than enough water; it just has to be used smartly. The message is cautionary but optimistic -- that rediscovering the special qualities of water is essential to rescuing us from water scarcity.

Unquenchable

By Robert Glennon
Island Press

The author of Water Follies provides a look at water in America today in a book that has been called "both frightening and wickedly funny."
Discussed are the Las Vegas strip, faux snow in Atlanta, super-sized bathrooms, mega-farms, billion-dollar water deals, politics, and more.
Glennon argues in the book that people cannot engineer their way out of the problem or use odd schemes. Rather, he provides an answer that is a market-based system with water valued as a commodity and a human right.
