From the Preface:

“Water is a fundamental necessity for sustaining life on Earth. Every species on the planet depends on it for survival, from those that live in it to those that dwell in the desert. Water should be a renewable resource, continually falling from the sky and evaporating into the air. Its importance in our lives is immeasurable. We drink it, bathe in it, cook with it, grow crops with it, play in it, and born in it.”

-Richard Joseph Stein
