Publisher’s Description: 

In this fascinating meditation on water, internationally published limnologist, Nina Munteanu, draws inspiration from some of the world’s greatest thinkers, artists and scientists, and a lifetime dedicated to water, into a spectacular gift for hydrophilics.

Water is emerging as one of the single most important resources of planet Earth. Already scarce in many areas, it has become the new “gold” to be bought, coveted, cherished, and hoarded worldwide. It is currently traded on the Stock Exchange.

Water Is… journeys through history to the latest in theory and bizarre knowledge: from water’s ubiquity in space to the hardy tardigrades (who can exist for 100 years without water then revive with one drop) to Emoto’s intention-invoked water crystals, the northern Ojibwa water spirits and the Kumbh Mela on the Ganges to the quantum properties of interfacial water. Water Is… explores why da Vinci spent hours studying flowing water and the vortex…why being near water makes us feel good…why our own bodies are so much like the ocean…why virtually all cultures considered water sacred. What is water’s story? And how has it affected our own stories?

Called “an astounding journey”, “an adventurous, surprising and inspiring book,” and a “sumptuous collection of treasures,” Water Is… explores one of the most important substances of Earth. Part history, part science and part philosophy and spirituality, Water Is… combines personal journey with scientific discovery that explores water’s many “identities” and ultimately our own.

 "We can't live without it, so maybe we should start respecting it; this beautifully designed book by a limnologist looks at water from 12 different angles, from life and motion and vibration to beauty and prayer." —Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid's Tale

“An adventurous, surprising and inspiring book that could not feel more timely.”—Emmi Itaränta, author of Memory of Water

“This book tries to zero in on the missing part, the great unknown of water, and it does it in a very intelligent and charming way.”—Elmar C. Fuchs, scientist at WETSUS
