A very important book for anyone concerned to stop corporate transnationals from profiteering from the destruction of the world's water supply . It is shocking and compelling because the privatization of water has already led to many deaths and a massive loss of living habitats for people and animals, but it is not a doom mongering book. It provides practical ideas about how to stop this disaster before it is too late.
