So I don't know about you guys; but I really enjoy books that challenge you to open your mind and see things differently. Let's hear some! I might check out some books you guys suggest.

Bottled and Sold: The Story Behind Our Obsession with Bottled Water

Author : Peter H. Gleick


A fantastic read please check this out.


Mould, sodium hydroxide, kerosene, styrene, algae, yeast, tetrahydrofuran, sand, faecal coliforms, glass, sanitiser - and crickets. Yes, crickets. I look somewhat sceptically at the plastic bottle of water in front of me. The label implies purity, health and happiness, and yet, according to Peter Gleick, I shouldn't be especially surprised to find one or more of these ingredients in my own bottle.
