Item description for Not a Drop to Drink: America's Water Crisis (and What You Can Do) by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Ken Midkiff...

In some parts of the United States, water is disappearing as consumption exceeds supply. In other parts, battles are raging that will determine both the cost and the quality of a simple glass of water. Not a Drop to Drink comprehensively examines the imminent crisis of America's water supply and explains what readers everywhere can do about it. In this straightforward, story-driven book, Ken Midkiff talks to crusty ranchers in Topeka, suited lawyers in Atlanta, and smooth-talking politicians in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Using regional and national case studies, he analyzes and presents the roots of the problem, and then says what we must do to solve it. Written by one of the foremost experts on America's water supply, Not a Drop to Drink is a must-read book for concerned citizens nationwide.

Reviews - What do customers think about Not a Drop to Drink: America's Water Crisis (and What You Can Do)?

Informative  Mar 10, 2008
Midkiff does a good job of presenting this crisis in an easy-to-understand manner. I learned a lot about the water crisis by reading this book. The writing is a little dry, with no maps, photos or graphs to help the reader to better understand the situation. In addition, Midkoff's personal bias towards conservation over innovation (seawater desalinization, iceberg towing) comes across loud and clear. Usually, as a Neo-Green, I get turned off by this sort of "doing less is the only way to save the planet" type of preaching. However, in the case of water, Conservation may just be the best tool for the job. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who feels in the dark about the water crisis.
The subject deserves a better book than this  Jan 20, 2008
This is a thin, poorly edited book about a coming train wreck in water supply. I think it attempts to follow in the footsteps of the late Marc Reisner's "Cadillac Desert", a noble idea as that (far better) book was a history, and suggested no solutions. Midkoff, to his credit, does suggest some actions, and provides both a broader geographic scope (problems in the Southeast and Northeast) and more currency, but the pedestrian prose, and the narrowness of his research weigh this book down. His look at solutions focuses on desalination and moving icebergs, but ignores water recycling and other conservation methods.
