“All About Water” lives up to its title! For all those who have advocated for more efficient use of fine water resources, this book is an essential tool in the toolbox.
Author Greg Chick uses his 40+ year history as a Southern California plumber, including the last 10 years as the “Do-it-Yourself Plumber” on YouTube, to share personal experiences and to explore the quality, quantity, social and economic aspects of water.
Not only does it help the layman understand the value and opportunity we all have with water, but it provides practical tips to help us all be more thoughtful and efficient consumers. The book is a quick and informative read that is relevant to all ages.Mary Conley Eggert
…One thing that struck me about the book is its usefulness as a tool to teach young children about water conservation. The illustrations by Audrey Ly are fun, and young children would relate to H2Homie (the water guy), a cartoon, water drop appearing at the end of chapters with questions and facts to expand upon
Having read many articles on conservation, I can say this is one of the more enjoyable reads on the subject I’ve encountered. I appreciate the author’s enthusiasm for his subject and his desire to educate his readers. It is apparent this book is a work of love. Well-written and edited, it is quite entertaining for a book of this nature. Using the characters, Mac and Mike, throughout as examples of good and bad water usage renders the information easily attainable.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend it to anyone wishing to learn more about water, plumbing, and conservation. It offers valuable information and includes plenty of references and links for those seeking more. As an informative guide for families wishing to teach their children about conservation or a helpful reference in the home, All About Water delivers.Kat Kennedy
