Water is something we take for granted; whether from tap or bottle, we rarely think about its source. But its journey to our glasses is more complicated than we realise. With a booming worldwide population, where will our water come from in the future? And is it safe to drink tap water? Is bottled water wasteful? Drinking Water explains the overlooked and surprising history of drinking water from Biblical conflicts to overpriced mineral water. You will never look at your glass in the same way again.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The scope of Salzmans book is impressive, encompassing everything from the construction of Roman aqueducts to subsidised water purification in Zambia * New Scientist *
James Salzmans book is a look at this everyday commodity most of us take for granted and which proves, on further examination, to be far from unremarkable after all * Scotsman *
A subject that concerns us all and [Salzmans] stories are colourful enough to keep you turning the page This book is a wake-up call for all of us * Mail on Sunday *
