Water Is…

Water Is-cover“Water is…The Meaning of Water”, April 2016

Internationally published author, teacher and limnologist Nina Munteanu explores one of the most important elements of Earth.

Nina Munteanu’s Water Is…” represents the culmination of over twenty-five years of dedication as limnologist and aquatic ecologist in the study of water. As a research scientist and environmental consultant, Nina studied water’s role in energizing and maintaining the biomes, ecosystems, and communities of our precious planet. During her consulting career for industry and government, Nina discovered a great disparity between humanity’s use, appreciation and understanding of water. This set in motion a quest to further explore our most incredible yet largely misunderstood and undervalued substance.

Part history, part science and part philosophy and spirituality,Water Is…” combines personal journey with scientific discovery that explores water’s many “identities” and ultimately our own.

We can’t live without it, so maybe we should start respecting it; this beautifully designed book by a limnologist looks at water from 12 different angles, from life and motion and vibration to beauty and prayer”—MARGARET ATWOOD, German literary Peace Prize winner and author of The Handmaid’s Tale, Canada

This book tries to zero in on the missing part, the great unknown of water, and it does it in a very intelligent and charming way.”—ELMAR C. FUCHS, WETSUS Program Manager

Nina Munteanu shares “her deep wisdom, experience and knowledge of humanity’s greatest natural resource…I am deeply grateful for this book by so highly qualified an author.”—ELISABET SAHTOURIS, author of Gaia’s Dance

An adventurous, surprising and inspiring book that could not feel more timely. The writing swept me away on a journey through history, landscape and our entire universe, yet brought me back home in the end with a fresh perspective on the significance of water.”—EMMI ITÄRANTA, author of Memory of Water

Water Is… a treasure trove of insights. How wonderful to see water from so many different perspectives in one very enjoyable book! I will be dipping in for many years to come.”TRISTAN GOOLEY, New York Times bestselling author of How to Read Water

Masterful exploration of water from the scientific to the philosophical. Nina Munteanu’s ‘Water Is…’ is a magnum opus. A limnologist (water scientist) by trade, as well as a scuff author, Munteanu has a deep, intimate relationship with her subject…Munteanu points out [that] water is ubiquitous on the planet, as well as throughout the universe, playing a roll in everything from the formation of stars on the macro-scale, to the formation of proteins on the micro-scale….From the scientific to the philosophical, taking a deep dive into Nina Munteanu’s ‘Water Is…’ will give you much to ponder.”GREG RIPLEY, author of Tao of Sustainability and Voice of the Elders

This book emotionally connected me with water. As a result it fed my perception about the value of life. It reminded me that life reveals in each space a complex system that is full of surprise and beauty. A system of which I am part, without separation.”LAURA FRES, One Deep Sustainability, Barcelona, Spain
