I would give this book 4 stars because it was really fascinating how much water we use and everything we use it for. We use water to make twitter accounts (explained in the book which you should read). Also, I liked how Fishman supported his thoughts by presenting information. This information was regularly referred back to which built on the information already given and extended my thought process. However, I did not give it a rating of 5 stars because it is somewhat lengthy and sometimes it was hard to keep up with the point being made.
I would give this book 2 stars. The Big Thirst really does have important information, but it is repeated so many times. The whole book could have been done in 150 pages instead of 400. I felt like the book would have had more of an impact if it could have just gotten to the point instead of dragging everything out... The book talked about all of these problems and no solutions. I learned a lot, but I'm not sure that I would recommend it. I haven't read any of the other books on the list, but you might get something more out of a different book.
The Big Thirst, while very informational, is kind of boring and a bit repetitive. It's basically just talking about all these different towns that ran out of water or have water problems and how they attempted to deal with it. It was pretty interesting at times to read about how much water plays a part in our everyday lives without us even realizing it. The main thing I got out of this book was that water is very important so you should appreciate it. Overall the book wasn't too bad. I'm not really sure if I'd recommend reading it because sometimes it's a bit hard to get into, but if you're just really curious and fascinated by water it'd probably be a good read.
