This is Water - Brief Review

Something arrived in the post today... (photos over at the TIW page, thanks Bonnie, Marlena and Katherine)
This is Water 
I like it. It is pretty much as I expected. Mostly a paragraph or a line of text per page. Carefully paginated for emphasis and nicely paced. And you know, it just works. Nice cover too.
I've read it three times already. I can see myself picking it up from time to time for a quick read. I actually think it would make a great little gift.
Unsurpisingly, when compared to the original speech and the Wall Street Journal version, it is cleaned up and slightly edited, nothing major. This isn't a bad thing. There's a nice touch hidden away in there too...
You can order it here.
