In the middle of the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas casinos use billions of gallons of water for fountains, pirate lagoons, wave machines, and indoor canals. Meanwhile, the town of Orme, Tennessee, must truck in water from Alabama because it has literally run out.Robert Glennon captures the irony - and tragedy - of America’s water crisis in a book that is both frightening and wickedly comical.

I'm not terrible with finances but I thought any learning could help me improve. I was in for a treat. not only did it give me a whole new toll set to reach the next level it started to give me simple and achievable actions to reach my goals. I recommend this book for people in financial woes and people doing well. I wish I had this before I graduated high school

I thought the first two chapters felt like a self help video that pops up on the internet. A 20 min video that talks around high performance but doesn't give the information until you buy the package. but after the first two chapters the information is absolutely excellent. I recommend muscling past the first two chapters and you'll have hit a Gem!!!!

  • Not a Scientist

In 1980, Ronald Reagan created one of the dumbest talking points of all time: "I'm not a scientist, but..." Since then, politicians have repeatedly committed egregious transgressions against scientific knowledge prefaced by this seemingly innocuous phrase. Yet, as science journalist Dave Levitan reveals, that line is just the tip of the melting iceberg when it comes to rhetorical tools wielded to attack scientific findings that don't cooperate with political agendas.

this book sheds light on the disturbing trend of politicians to twist scientific evidence to support their own agenda. this book not only provides the detail, it breaks down the trends to make the public aware of what is happening. absolutely excellent book.
