This is the first book review I've ever written, after dozens of purchases, so that fact alone and the impetus for me to write a review must say something. This book is absolutely amazing!! Most laypeople know very little about water, despite it being the most important thing in our lives in myriad ways. I bought this out of my general interest in water issues like this, which this book is great for in and of itself. But when I got it I quickly found that it covers WAY more than that and does so extremely well (no pun intended, but it appears a lot here!). He is an excellent writer who can explain complicated things very well with text and excellent illustrations, all of which are easy-to-understand and yet comprehensive enough to actually be meaningful to any interested reader who may want to use the information now or later. This also is a good book for those who are concerned about water on other levels (no pun meant again, sorry!) and for an overall perspective on it but want a better handle on the complexities of water use systems-this is great for that insight. As at least one other reviewer stated, his examples and stories are great. I intend now to purchase some of the other books he has written, I like his perspectives and writing and the environmental subjects of importance he tackles. Mr. Campbell is regionally near me thus his perspectives are directly beneficial to me, but he incorporates a national and even global perspective where needed, like western water 'wars.' I have two properties in the same region as him which are both supplied by well water and both have "well-point" wells hand-driven by my father himself with a sledge hammer. One has been operable without issues since the early 1940's, the other since the 1970's!
