Only partway through, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I pre-ordered this book based on reviews from Britain. While waiting for the US release, I read Gooley's "Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs" which I loved. It is informative and entertaining, covering a wide variety of topics from wild places like Borneo, to cities. I was then really looking forward to "How to Read Water" but was unsure if an entire book on one topic would be as riveting. Halfway through and I can honestly say, it is. I'm torn between wanting to read more and more, to wanting to read and reread a section deeply and see if I can find examples. Many examples can be found far from oceans or large bodies of water, so this is not just a book for people on shorelines. The author's knowledge, excitement and joy of learning and teaching new things really comes through in his writing.
Absolutely fascinating! Had to dock the author a star, though, for getting completely wrong the explanation of hydrogen bonding in water.
Delightful reading--practical information that can be enhance any excursion: walking, biking, or traveling by any mode.
Geared toward nature in the UK but applicable everywhere.
