The Big Thirst
The Big Thirst by Charles Fishman (Other Nonfiction)
Despite the recent rains, the west of the US has been in a severe drought, as has the south east of the US. The book discusses the nature of water, its vital importance to us, our reckless way of using it here (with discussion of how it is used in India and Australia) and various ways of securing reliable water to maintain our standard of living, if not necessarily our "way of life". -- Added by Konsulentin on 01/09/2017

Seven Brief Lessons on Physics
Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli (Other Nonfiction)
Everything you ever wanted to know about physics and the nature of the universe (is so far as we know it - there is also conjecture in this book) but were afraid to ask. Charmingly written. -- Added by Konsulentin on 01/09/2017
