Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought it
Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It - Elizabeth Royte Royte's book is fascinating - a global view of drinking water issues set against the backdrop of a tiny Maine town fighting the attentions of a Swiss-based multinational with a reputation for predatory behavior.Much has happened since Royte's book was published (the paperback version includes an afterword detailing more recent news), but the book remains interesting and deeply informative. Looking forward to Royte's next work.,

Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It
Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It - Elizabeth Royte Royte's in-depth look at water and the water industry is eye-opening and interesting. It also makes me glad to live in an area served by Portland's Bull Run reservoir. Royte leaves us with no answers, just an array of variously weighted choices. The writing is good, the flow a little discursive and meandering. Still, recommended for people interested in water and mega-corporations and pipes and the like. I had no idea that Nestlé owned so many of the bottled water labels. Ick.

Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It
Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It - Elizabeth Royte This book provides an interesting and very detailed look at the bottled water business. It looks at how the business went from a small niche to a big market. It may either make you go buy more bottled water, or really make you stick with the tap water. Because the truth is not as simple as it is usually presented. Tap water is not as bad as people make it sound. . .for the most part. But bottled water is not much better, and at times, is slightly worse, not to mention its environmental impact. This book does try to look at both sides of the issue in a balanced way as the author travels and speaks to many experts from water utility managers to a bottled water snob to corporate representatives of bottled water. If you have no idea where your drinking water comes from, you have to read this book. Me? I am sticking with my tap water and refilling my bottle. By the way, the history is very interesting as well; the book looks at how springs were seen as medicinal and the early bottling businesses. This is one I recommend. I understand this author has other books, so I will likely look for them as well.
