“Your Body’s Many Cries for Water” – Fereydoon Batmanghelidj (3/5 ★)

I wish I could give the book a better rating due to its content but it just doesn’t measure up higher than a 3 out of 5. It’s not incredibly well written, it is extremely repetitive & the “stuck in the 90s” design of the cover as well as of some randomly inserted illustrations (of little globes in front of oceans or rainbows) almost acts as a repellent from letting you pick it up.

Nevertheless, I would absolutely recommend it to everyone who has heard the phrase, “You should drink more water!” multiple dozens of times but has never received a sufficient explanation of WHY you should do it. Densely packed with what at times seems like outtakes of chemistry, physics & biology classes, it brings the needed message across. While it does get a bit too scientific every now & then for someone without much background knowledge on the subject, it’s short enough of a read to still let you get through it quickly.

For me, at least that’s the 1st “person” who has motivated me to drink more than I would on a regular basis, so let the “experiment” commence 😉

★★★☆☆ (3/5)
