"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
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).
