"Susan J. Marks's book, Aqua Shock: The Water Crisis in America, brings to our attention the dire straits that America faces in the future because of water shortages and pollution of existing sources. It is time that the American public awakens to these conditions and takes steps, however costly, to change them. Aqua Shock will help achieve this desired goal."

"Thankfully, Marks not only spells out in rich detail how and why we as a country find ourselves in the present predicament, but also how we can emerge from it and satisfy our thirst for water in a safe and sane manner. It is within our power to solve this problem, and we must."
