The New York Times called the book an “[I]lluminating read. Vox says it’s “Thought-provoking.” The book was featured on the June 27th episode of John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight.
Wired said, “In 13 concise chapters, Fleck…illustrates how states, communities, and water rights holders have learned that the winner-takes-all approach to water management is a losing proposition.”
