An interesting, informative and thought-provoking book. An excellent read. We found the opening statement of the book comments disappointing as we so enjoyed the detail and enthusiasm of this book.

Most found the book a wonderful resource about how to look after the water, a valuable resource. Amazing transformation of Israel's landscape due to knowledge, education, research and hard work. A couple of people could not bear to read it, found it 'propaganda'. But most thought the world could learn a lot from what Israel has achieved.
