#ForewordFriday: Unquenchable

Here's another important book to add to your summer reading list: Unquenchable by Robert Glennon. Named a "Top Ten Environmental Book of 2009" by Mother Nature Network, Robert Glennon's book captures the irony—and tragedy—of America’s water crisis in a book that is both frightening and wickedly comical. From manufactured snow for tourists in Atlanta to trillions of gallons of water flushed down the toilet each year, Unquenchable reveals the heady extravagances and everyday inefficiencies that are sucking the nation dry. Check out the sample below and see why some some Goodreads reviewers are calling it "amazing" and "a great way to reintroduce nonfiction into my literary life." Enjoy!
