More About the Author

As a publisher of mind-body-spirit books for 35 years, I felt that of all the books I had published (which included Jonathan Livingston Seagull in 1972), the 6 books on Viktor Schauberger's insights into Nature's workings were the most significant.
I was part of the editorial team that published Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in 1962, and ever since have been campaigning against our society's violation of Nature.
My last book, Hidden Nature, brought Schauberger's topical research up to date for a wider audience. He was known as 'The Water Wizard' for his intuitive observations into water's subtle energies.
My latest book, The Story of Water, inspired by Viktor, looks at the exciting new research into the quantum qualities of water and its role as the communication medium between all of life and the Cosmos.
I am now working on its sequel: The Life of Gaia.

Product Description


"Alick Bartholomew has done a great service to us all by putting the fundamental issues of water so clearly and lucidly in front of us. His [book] is a perfect guide to show us the way to put right our broken relationship with water. This is one of those rare books which brings science, spirituality and practicality in one integrated whole." --Satish Kumar, Editor, Resurgence "In a single volume, by analysing and synthesising the insights of recent research into the qualities of water that best support life, Alick has taken us a step closer to answering that most fundamental of questions, 'What is Life?'!" --Chris Weedon, Co-founder The Water Association "Alick Bartholomew's new book: 'The Story of Water: Source of Life' is a passionate attempt to get us to stop taking water for granted and to give it the attention - and respect and even love - it deserves... 'The Story of Water' covers just about everything that you would want, or need, to know about this most precious element. The book is encyclopaedic in scope, testament to Bartholomew's long and deeply-researched interest in the subject... 'The Story of Water' remains a thought-provoking book which should be read widely." -- Paul Carline, New View, Autumn 2010 "In this unique, wide-ranging work, which includes some beautiful colour plates, Bartholomew reiterates the importance and characteristics of water, its purpose in the Cosmos and our solar system, its atmospheric and terrestrial cycles, and its role in nuturing animal and plant life as well as evolutionary progress." -- Ruth Parnell, Nexus "Words cannot describe the extraordinarily comprehensive, deep and lucid treatment of the role of water within our bodies and in the environment. Based on more than a century of scientific study, much of which hasn't been recognized by mainstream scientists, Bartholemew's magnum opus argues convincingly that water is most life-giving and life-enhancing substance known to humanity: we can either destroy ourselves and our surroundings by polluting our water or we can heal through natural processes, positive intention and vortex motion. Water has consciousness and memory. This is the most important book I've read in the new century and will be required reading for all my students." -- Brian O'Leary, Ph.D, author of The Energy Solution Revolution "Through a more profound understanding of the nature of water, Alick has made a very significant contribution to the emergence of a holistic worldview, while not neglecting the ecological and political dimentions of water with which we will have to deal collectively in the next 20 years, This book is essential reading for those who wish to understand the real story of water." -- David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review, Winter 2010 'A rich tapestry that describes the story of water form its many aspects and appearances... It helps give a deeper appreciation of water so that we can give it the respect it deserves. The book starts with lovely meditation.' -- Star & furrow, Winter 2011

About the Author

Alick Bartholomew's lifelong concern, both as writer and publisher, has been to reconcile scientific enquiry with a spiritual worldview. Investigating water at a deep personal level became a quest that has inspired much of his work. He studied Geology at Cambridge University followed by graduate studies at the University of Chicago, and through his long publishing career he published many books on alternative themes and lifestyles. He is the author of Hidden Nature: The Startling Insights of Viktor Schauberger (Floris Books, 2003).

This book Met all my expectations, I found the information contained within the book to be of great importance and also very enlightening. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in the physics and usefulness of water. There was a lot of facts about water, which I had not known about.

I love this book and yearn for more 20 Mar. 2013

All I can say is this book opened my eyes to the works of Viktor Schauberg and I am eating the work up. The information contained was very resonating with me and made so much more sense than the college books on hydrodynamics I have from school.
