A new review of How To Read Water is in the Times today. The full review is on this page (behind a paywall).

Here are some highlights:

“This inspired guide to water in all its forms will make a big splash…

Gooley proves himself to be an entertaining, informative and frequently witty guide…

This aquatic sequel will only enhance his reputation as an insightful champion of the sublime complexity of the natural world…

How To Read Water carries, after all, the ambitious claim in its subtitle (Clues, Signs and Patterns From Puddles to the Sea) that it will explain all manner of hydro-tastical nuances. And so, triumphantly, it does…

Besides plenty of well-elucidated science, Gooley also stirs in a healthy dash of anecdote and personal travelogue into his mix…

Gooley has done his subject proud — this is seriously fascinating stuff.”
