This book is a fantastic voyage through water, revealing a hidden universe teeming with physical activity and providing answers so simple that any curious person can understand. Much of the research corresponds beautifully with the osteopathic view of fluid flow and movement. This text will stretch your mind and shatter many commonly held beliefs. An entertaining and enlightening read.
Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Dr. Gerald Pollack is an international leader in the field of water research. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. Since then, his research interests have ranged broadly over the scientific spectrum, from cardiac dynamics and electrophysiology, to muscle contraction, cell biology, and more recently to the role of water in nature.
Currently Dr. Pollack runs the Pollack Laboratory at the University of Washington, which focuses on uncovering some of nature’s most deeply held secrets. He is also the Editor-In-Chief of the scientific journal WATER, a multidisciplinary research journal that brings together water-oriented research from diverse disciplines.
Professor Pollack has earned many distinctions, medals, and honors. He was awarded the highest faculty honor bestowed by his university, the Annual Award Lectureship at the University of Washington, 2008. View full list of awards.
Professor Pollack is in demand internationally as a catalytic lecturer.
In his spare time in Seattle, he enjoys gardening, cooking, skiing, and ruminating on subjects as diverse as the origin of weather, the molecular basis of brain function, and solving the world’s crises (water, energy, health). He has also been known to build ponds, harpsichords, and tree houses.

"The most interesting science book I’ve ever read." Zhiliang Gong, University of Chicago.
"The most significant scientific discovery of this century. What strikes me above all is the elegant simplicity of [Pollack’s] experimental approach. It takes our understanding of the most vital substance for life on earth a quantum leap forward. Many of the experiments can be done on the kitchen table, and you don’t even need a microscope to see the results. Add to that a highly congenial and unassuming personality, and it’s no wonder Pollack is attracting undergraduates and graduates like flies, not to mention many collaborators around the world.” Mae-Wan Ho, Author, Living Rainbow H2O; Director, Institute of Science and Society.
"Dr. Pollack is one of the pioneers in this field, and his discoveries can be expected to have important implications." Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate, Cambridge University.
"The most original thinker I have ever met." Csaba Galambos, University of Colorado.
"Einstein has got nothing on Pollack. Pollack has the uncanny ability to pinpoint the right questions and grasp the simple ideas." Capt. T.C. Randall, Author, Forbidden Healing.
"This is like getting new glasses! The clarity is astounding." Charles Cushing, Independent Scientist.
“Fantastic material with revolutionary insights. What impresses me most is that the experiments are visually instantly accessible.” Helmut Roniger, Consulting physician.
“As good a page-turner as a Dan Brown novel. … this book has a folksy style that I know will be very popular.” David Anick, Harvard University.
With balance and grace, Pollack seems to have come closest to presenting a 'unified field' vision of matter through the lens of water." John Fellows, Independent Scientist.
"This amazing book has changed my understanding of all the processes going on in water which I was confident I knew about — the understanding that dictated my many years of teaching and organized my research. I must now come to terms with the demonstration that water is not just a medium in which physics and chemistry happen, but a machine that powers and manages physics and chemistry." Martin Canny, Australian National University.
“Brilliant! Read the last chapter first." Molly McGee, University of Washington.
