Summary

World renowned scientist, Dr. Gerald Pollack, takes us on a fantastic voyage through water, showing us a hidden universe teeming with physical activity - providing simple explanations for common everyday phenomena, which you have inevitably seen but not really understood.

For instance, have you ever wondered...

How do clouds made up of dense water droplets manage to float in the sky? Why don't your joints squeak as they rub together? Why do you sink in dry sand, but not in wet sand? How does capillary action manage to raise water up a 100 foot tree? Why does warm water freeze quicker than cool water?

Pollack uses a recent and fundamental scientific finding - EZ water - to help explain these and many other head-scratchers.

When touching most surfaces, water transforms itself into so-called EZ (Exclusion Zone) water, also known as structured water or fourth phase water. EZ water, whose formula is H3O2, differs dramatically from H2O. And, there is a lot of it, everywhere.  

This award-winning book provides ample evidence for the existence of EZ water. Pollack writes in a clear, eloquent style.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The Fourth Phase of Water

Very extensive work explaining the water to the details.

Very well done.

It is very technical so be aware.

Great listen

I've enjoyed listening to this, it was a definite eye-opener.
Very well presented as well. I'm a first year science student, so found it a bit hard to follow at some places but it should be easy to understand for anyone who has a good foundation in chemistry and physics. It also encourages young scientists not to shy away from doing proper, experiment-based science and not just accept the ideas of well-established science royalty.

Finally the audio version!!!How exciting

I have been waiting for this book in audio format for a long long long time. How excellent that it is out.
The specific book and Dr pollack's wisdom and experience regarding the insights about fourth phase water (EZ)
is astounding. Thank you for providing the audio version...What a gift

Understanding these many phases of water is critical to not only health and wellbeing but also planetary symbiosis and all life on the planet including plant and animal and human etc.

Bravo...so glad that this is now in a narrated format.

a must read.

A seed for pseudo-science?

I listened to this audible hoping to gain insights into novel physical and chemical processes associated with H2O, as I am making my way through a physics phd. After I finished it, I was curious to find out if Pollack's claims about water science's lack of establishment credibility were true: he warns upfront that water science rightfully earned a bad reputation years ago, and is still suffering. He gives two good examples that explain how this began.[-------------------------------------------------------------------------------]


In my search, I found that the study of water is still lacking proper representation in legit science circles, and is therefore an easy target for scientists in more established fields. I read a very long review of Pollack's work by someone who seemingly has a good handle on chemistry, on chemistry-stackexchange. But the reviewer obviously misunderstood many if not all of Pollack's claims..[-------------------------------------------------------------------------------]

Another problem easily attributable to water science's lack of proper representation in legit science circles is that it is even more a target for exploitation by pseudo-scientists, e.g. Mercola. This is why I made my comment title in reference to "a seed for pseudo-science"..[-------------------------------------------------------------------------------]

Pollack's association with Physics Nobel Laureate Brian Josephson, now widely regarded in mainstream science as a pseudo-science quack for his "research" on extra-sensory perception probably isn't helping his cause..[-------------------------------------------------------------------------------]

Despite Pollack's apparent and admitted lack of credibility, I gained many valuable insights into physical and chemical processes from this audible, and not just limited to H2O. Though I found some of Pollack's claims to novelty as being somewhat trivial, such as "like attracts like" (refer to bonding versus anti-bonding electron wavefunctions, if you know anything about basic quantum mechanics; or reasoning behind simple valence bonds, if you prefer chemistry), overall this was a very enlightening book..[-------------------------------------------------------------------------------]

It was written by an established scientist (according to the very well established UW that has apparently not stripped him of tenure) who seems to be covering as many relevant angles as possible in his research so that it stands up to reviewers and skeptics. He also doesn't appear to be making any outlandish claims..[-------------------------------------------------------------------------------]

The narration was great, and I was able to maintain focus for the entire 11+ hrs.

EZ is not so easy!

This is so cool explaining parts of our world which have so far been overlooked.
