This book is a technical research report, , and gives another important strand of firm evidence to support the case for switching to vegan lifestyles. (Vegan, 1 December 2010) “Heightened concern about global climate change makes this book timely and of interest to many readers." (Choice Reviews, May 2009) "[This book] is an authorative and stimulating book to read. Its main contribution is the excellent use of case studies to illustrate the well-articulated theoretical background of virtual water and its global implications... A though-provoking book." (South African Geographical Journal, 2008) “The authors propose to reverse the logic of production volumes to consumption volumes. This approach entirely changes all conclusions concerning water stress in the world, dependencies on other countries, and responsibility for water scarcity. This detailed study gives new insights into these mechanisms, leading to a more realistic picture of a country's water needs. The book contains extensive and detailed tables, with all the data required for an in depth evaluation. The book concludes with some important remarks on fairness, sustainability, responsibility, and price-setting." (Water Environment and Technology Magazine, December 2008)
