The author of book claims that water gives good crystalline structure in response to good music, good (moral) words, good photos, and good contaminants (good for human health), whereas, in response to bad music, bad words, bad photos, or bad contaminants (bad for human health), water produces bad crystalline structure. Water is not an independent living being; it does not have central nervous system and hence it has no consciousness to respond to music (pages 43, 17-27), photographs (pages 33-36, 101-111), or written/spoken words (pages 5-15). Water is a simple polar molecule with some unique physical and chemical properties. It is a universal solvent that solvates (hydrates) macromolecules and some low molecular weight compounds under physiological conditions which confer some unique properties to these molecules. Water does not have any extraordinary properties that confer thought process to individual water molecules. The hidden message of water is its unique structure, simplicity and the chemical characteristics. Water is medium in which life is born, but oxygen is the molecule that supports life and provides energy.

Water/water vapor condenses into ice in shapes dictated by the geometry of molecules, rate of cooling; temperature, pressure, humidity, and motion/stirring of the liquid. Ice crystals range from simple faceted structures to complex branching networks. The physics of ice formation argue against the influence of music or written word on crystal shape. However the crystal formation is affected by the compounds dissolved in water (pages 113-132). Water obtained from different sources has different amounts of minerals, biological and organic molecules that accounts for the difference in the crystal formation, but crystal structure does not depend on their health effects. The experimental conditions used in this work are unscientific (pages xxi-xxv); appropriate control experiments (for example, studying ice crystal formation without the effect of written words or music) have to be performed side by side under identical conditions to eliminate the extraneous effects. In addition, the experiments have to be repeated few times to verify the repeatability of same ice crystal formation and calculate the statistical significance. Philosophical reasoning based on Vedic and Tantric philosophy or modern philosophy also precludes conferring consciousness to water molecules.

Several unscientific statements have been made about the universe and life, but I have not itemized them individually (see Prologue, and pages 38, 44, 46, 52, 58, 64, 66, 86). To learn more about scientific aspects of ice crystal formation, I recommend: The Snowflake by Kenneth G. Libbrecht; and Snow Crystals by W. A. Bentley and W. J. Humphreys.

A truly sweet account of the author's quest to find out using snow/ice-water-crystals how water changes and is influenced by us with pollution/thought/emotion etc

The author was so convinced of his findings that he originally self-published his book. He was tireless in his enthusiasm for what he found.

Some of the pictures are such a delight it makes you think twice about even drinking a glass of water, let alone leaving one lying around.

As a qualified Homeopath and author of How to Survive a Pisces, I have a deep knowledge of water is all its guises and I congratulate Mr Emoto's vision.

If you want to hear him talking about resonance go to [...] and you will see Mr Emoto talking more about his theories.

I loved this book and even the story of it made me feel tearful because it was written in love and for love:)

This book takes common knowledge and extrapolates ridiculous conclusions. I don't know where this guy got his qualifications, but I would suggest it probably cost him less than this book. This stuff is the reason dumb people think they are smart. Read some science instead.

This book can shake your ideas, it is a very inspiring book,
Try to keep an open mind while reading.
Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific,
concentrated thoughts are directed toward them in the form of words.
Dr. Masaru Emoto describes the ability of water to absorb, hold, and even re transmit human feelings and emotions
It's an interesting book that shows the positive(or negative) possibilities when positive(or negative) energy is focused and directed.
The experiments he did with crystals are absolutely fascinating and serve as visual proof of how words can affect us.
The pictures are amazing.
This book is very thought provoking.

This book has made me think differently about the very substance we are made of - Water.

In the Hidden Messages of Water, there are fantastic illustrations of photos taken of water crystals and the effects that positive and negative words, both written and spoken, have on their formation.
It gives us an insight into how positivity or negativity effects water molecules and everything around us and why words and sentiments could have such a massive effect on our daily life. These are things I'm sure we are all aware of, but what I did not know was just how special and wondrous water is and that we must be grateful and loving towards it for the good of everyone and everything on the planet.

A good read. You will never look at water the same way again after reading this book.
