My book on water policy --The End of Abundance: economic solutions to water scarcity -- is now on sale.*
- The book is written for non-economists who are interested in water policy affecting various topics (tap water, environmental water, agricultural irrigation, human rights and water, etc.).
- I've tried to strike an even tone between a book that's academic (careful analysis) but also useful (realistic solutions).
- Potential readers range from students to professionals to activists who have a background in law, engineering, ecology, or politics.
- I am particularly interested in getting the book into organizations (businesses, bureaucracies and schools) concerned with sustainable water use.
I am writing you in case you want to read the book or know someone who does
- Visit endofabundance.com to learn more about the book (sample chapters, google search/browse, video overview of chapters, endorsements by water experts, etc.).
- The website also has a link for buying the book for $20 (paperback) or $10 (PDF).** There are discounts for bulk sales (20+ copies).
*After disagreeing with UC Press on the content and marketing of the book, I decided to self-publish it via Amazon Print on Demand. "Self-publishing" is sometimes confused with vanity press, but I have tried to hit a higher standard with this book (in analysis and production quality). Readers will deliver the final judgement.
***Kindle and EPUB editions to come.
My copy is in my shopping cart at Amazon ... just waiting for something else to buy so I can get free shipping.
Note: You've got to admire David's spunk (for lack of a better word while I'm struggling to adjust back to eastern standard time after four nights in Seattle). I would have done whatever UC Press wanted me to do.
