    I have really wrestled with my feelings about this book and how to deal with my issues. I considered just leaving some stars and be done with it. I don't think that is fair to any of the parties involved, not to the writer, the publisher or those who will consider purchasing the book. ...

    I received an early copy from Crown via my graduate program. Scott's story is tremendous and amazing. While reading it, there were times where I felt a presence come over me, as if something unseen resonated with what I was reading. Please buy this book when it's released in Octobe...

    This is my #1 for the year. ...

    Amazing, touching story of a man on a path to reinvent himself and make a difference in the world ...

    Fairly well written for someone who's not really a writer, and just an amazing and inspiring story. I own a hardcover if anyone wants to borrow it. ...

    This is a very personal story by Scott Harrison of his journey from a confused, rebellious young boy whose mother had a strange illness and whose parents became zealous in their faith to a selfish, partying young man to the founder of a wonderful charity hoping to make a real differenc...

    This book solidifies Harrison's seat at the table alongside Nicholas Kristof and Dr. Paul Farmer. His journey around the world and back again is rivaled only by his quest to quench the world's insatiable thirst for clean water. While Harrison discovers and cultivates his Christian fait...

    What I loved: The parts when Scott focused on the stories of those chairity:water serves and the stories of people who have partnered with him along the way. It read like a thank you & celebration of their efforts. I was awed and reminded of the magnitude of the potable water prob...

    So I didn't get this book for free, and I didn't pay for it. Got it at the public library, so here is an unbiased review. I love a good memoir, and this reads like one, albeit quite long. However, it's almost more of a memoir of charity: water than it is of its founder. I LOVE the podc...

    There isn't a stronger or more personal connection between humans then the art of storytelling. Great stories are full of hope. Great stories define who we are. And great stories empower the audience. The book Thirst and Scott's story will leave you inspired, appreciative and motivated...

    There were lots of interesting parts of this book. I loved hearing about how they took the organization from dysfunction to functioning. I was super curious about his mother's story, as someone who has had experience with environmental sensitivities. I liked learning about his fundrais...

    What a cool book! I liked getting to follow Scott's journey from club promoter to non-profit founder. I didn't know anything about the NYC club scene, and it was interesting to see it through his eyes. I felt like I was along for the ride as he described his faith journey, his time wit...

    This book shared Scott Harrison?s first hand account of his personal story and the rise of Charity: Water. My favorite parts were when he shared many of villages pre and post water because the zeitgeist of the villages were dramatically shifted. I thought that he could have shortened...

    Inspiring and moving Until I read this book, I have to admit that I wasn?t aware of the severity of the global water crisis that many countries are facing and their plight. But after reading this, I want to pledge something for it by spreading the awareness and contributing as mu...

    First off I was not aware how much of Christianity played a vital role in the author's story. It is always good to read a story about someone who was walking a life that was of emptiness and unfulfillment then gets awoken and changes his trajectory. It seems to me that the skill sets h...

    Inspirador! Um dos melhores livros que li esse ano. A sinceridade e desprendimento com os quais Scott Harrison relata sua jornada até aqui dão um tom leve e empolgante para um tema que nem sempre pode parecer interessante: caridade e serviço. Terminei o livro me sentindo entusiasmad...

    I was hoping for a bit more insight into the creativity and storytelling behind Harrison?s org charity: water, but I was not disappointed with this book. I was as blown away with his ability to inform, engage and inspire through the written word as I was hearing him speak. The storie...

    The title was a little deceiving, the whole first half of the book or more is about Scott?s personal life (which was still super entertaining) and lays the backstory to how Scotts?s company ?Charity Water? and it?s mission originated. Then the second half of the book is about...

    Thirst... an inspiring journey one entrepreneur took on a mission to connect people with clean water. Although some chapters dragged on with details of parties and backstory, the book contained valuable yet heart wrenching information about the world's water crisis. Drilling wells to h...

    Fast read. Kept me engaged the whole way through. The author is an over-the-top kind of personality so everything he does he does beyond reason, but that's a part of why the book was compelling. He also turned his life around from "over the top decadence and self-indulgence" to an over...

    If you?re looking for a book of transformation. A book that will inspire you. I book of motivation and true transparency. A book to awaken your inner spirit, your soul, this is a book that will do it. I was taken through a series of emotions. I must says these real life stories awake...

    There isn't a stronger or more personal connection between humans then the art of storytelling. Great stories are full of hope. Great stories define who we are. And great stories empower the audience. The book Thirst and Scott's story will leave you inspired, appreciative and motivated...

    There were lots of interesting parts of this book. I loved hearing about how they took the organization from dysfunction to functioning. I was super curious about his mother's story, as someone who has had experience with environmental sensitivities. I liked learning about his fundrais...

    I have really wrestled with my feelings about this book and how to deal with my issues. I considered just leaving some stars and be done with it. I don't think that is fair to any of the parties involved, not to the writer, the publisher or those who will consider purchasing the book. ...

    I received an early copy from Crown via my graduate program. Scott's story is tremendous and amazing. While reading it, there were times where I felt a presence come over me, as if something unseen resonated with what I was reading. Please buy this book when it's released in Octobe...

    This is my #1 for the year. ...

    Amazing, touching story of a man on a path to reinvent himself and make a difference in the world ...

    Fairly well written for someone who's not really a writer, and just an amazing and inspiring story. I own a hardcover if anyone wants to borrow it. ...

    This is a very personal story by Scott Harrison of his journey from a confused, rebellious young boy whose mother had a strange illness and whose parents became zealous in their faith to a selfish, partying young man to the founder of a wonderful charity hoping to make a real differenc...

    This book solidifies Harrison's seat at the table alongside Nicholas Kristof and Dr. Paul Farmer. His journey around the world and back again is rivaled only by his quest to quench the world's insatiable thirst for clean water. While Harrison discovers and cultivates his Christian fait...

    What I loved: The parts when Scott focused on the stories of those chairity:water serves and the stories of people who have partnered with him along the way. It read like a thank you & celebration of their efforts. I was awed and reminded of the magnitude of the potable water prob...

    Extremely inspirational and at times truly unbelievable. This book is actually filled with quite a few business lessons, leadership lessons and overall life lessons that most of us probably need to hear. ...

    If you only read one book this year, this should be it!! It is not very often that I slow down reading a book, because I didn?t want it to end. Harrison?s story challenges one to look beyond their comforts and step into the incredibly transforming lifestyle of living by faith. In h...

    So I didn't get this book for free, and I didn't pay for it. Got it at the public library, so here is an unbiased review. I love a good memoir, and this reads like one, albeit quite long. However, it's almost more of a memoir of charity: water than it is of its founder. I LOVE the podc...

    Where do I even begin? I had to break up my review in 2 parts. Part 1. Scott?s Writing: I?m a self-published author and a female construction worker living in Las Vegas. My start time is 6 a.m. at the Resorts World tower. I found myself getting to work earlier and earlier to re...

    I very rarely give five stars to any book, but this one checked all the right boxes for me. If you are not familiar with charity:water and Scott Harrison?s story he spends about the first third of the book giving a great history. One learns about his childhood, his family, life event...

    This book shared Scott Harrison?s first hand account of his personal story and the rise of Charity: Water. My favorite parts were when he shared many of villages pre and post water because the zeitgeist of the villages were dramatically shifted. I thought that he could have shortened...

    Inspiring and moving Until I read this book, I have to admit that I wasn?t aware of the severity of the global water crisis that many countries are facing and their plight. But after reading this, I want to pledge something for it by spreading the awareness and contributing as mu...

    First off I was not aware how much of Christianity played a vital role in the author's story. It is always good to read a story about someone who was walking a life that was of emptiness and unfulfillment then gets awoken and changes his trajectory. It seems to me that the skill sets h...

    Inspirador! Um dos melhores livros que li esse ano. A sinceridade e desprendimento com os quais Scott Harrison relata sua jornada até aqui dão um tom leve e empolgante para um tema que nem sempre pode parecer interessante: caridade e serviço. Terminei o livro me sentindo entusiasmad...

    Thirst... an inspiring journey one entrepreneur took on a mission to connect people with clean water. Although some chapters dragged on with details of parties and backstory, the book contained valuable yet heart wrenching information about the world's water crisis. Drilling wells to h...

    Fast read. Kept me engaged the whole way through. The author is an over-the-top kind of personality so everything he does he does beyond reason, but that's a part of why the book was compelling. He also turned his life around from "over the top decadence and self-indulgence" to an over...

    My work is water. Water is simple to me and it shows up in 20 gpm or 1200 gpm without hesitation. To watch Scott go from his life of selfishness to a life of bringing life to others at 0.3 gpm is humbling and awe inspiring. I would be lying if I said I didnt break down countless times ...

    *I was given an advance copy of this book from the publisher* I first heard Scott's story on a podcast he did with Bill Simmons a few years ago. I was immediately drawn to Scott's mission and purpose. Scott's change of heart was literally miraculous. This book is well written, en...

    Fantastically inspiring. I?ve been a donor to charity: water since 2012 and familiar with their story but Scott?s telling is as fascinating as it is compelling. The work he and his team are doing is massively important to the world and sets the new standard for how charities ca...

    I was hoping for a bit more insight into the creativity and storytelling behind Harrison?s org charity: water, but I was not disappointed with this book. I was as blown away with his ability to inform, engage and inspire through the written word as I was hearing him speak. The storie...

    The title was a little deceiving, the whole first half of the book or more is about Scott?s personal life (which was still super entertaining) and lays the backstory to how Scotts?s company ?Charity Water? and it?s mission originated. Then the second half of the book is about...

    Thirst... an inspiring journey one entrepreneur took on a mission to connect people with clean water. Although some chapters dragged on with details of parties and backstory, the book contained valuable yet heart wrenching information about the world's water crisis. Drilling wells to h...

    Fast read. Kept me engaged the whole way through. The author is an over-the-top kind of personality so everything he does he does beyond reason, but that's a part of why the book was compelling. He also turned his life around from "over the top decadence and self-indulgence" to an over...

    My work is water. Water is simple to me and it shows up in 20 gpm or 1200 gpm without hesitation. To watch Scott go from his life of selfishness to a life of bringing life to others at 0.3 gpm is humbling and awe inspiring. I would be lying if I said I didnt break down countless times ...

    *I was given an advance copy of this book from the publisher* I first heard Scott's story on a podcast he did with Bill Simmons a few years ago. I was immediately drawn to Scott's mission and purpose. Scott's change of heart was literally miraculous. This book is well written, en...

    I have really wrestled with my feelings about this book and how to deal with my issues. I considered just leaving some stars and be done with it. I don't think that is fair to any of the parties involved, not to the writer, the publisher or those who will consider purchasing the book. ...

    I received an early copy from Crown via my graduate program. Scott's story is tremendous and amazing. While reading it, there were times where I felt a presence come over me, as if something unseen resonated with what I was reading. Please buy this book when it's released in Octobe...

    This is my #1 for the year. ...

    Amazing, touching story of a man on a path to reinvent himself and make a difference in the world ...

    Fairly well written for someone who's not really a writer, and just an amazing and inspiring story. I own a hardcover if anyone wants to borrow it. ...

    This is a very personal story by Scott Harrison of his journey from a confused, rebellious young boy whose mother had a strange illness and whose parents became zealous in their faith to a selfish, partying young man to the founder of a wonderful charity hoping to make a real differenc...

    This book solidifies Harrison's seat at the table alongside Nicholas Kristof and Dr. Paul Farmer. His journey around the world and back again is rivaled only by his quest to quench the world's insatiable thirst for clean water. While Harrison discovers and cultivates his Christian fait...

    What I loved: The parts when Scott focused on the stories of those chairity:water serves and the stories of people who have partnered with him along the way. It read like a thank you & celebration of their efforts. I was awed and reminded of the magnitude of the potable water prob...

    Extremely inspirational and at times truly unbelievable. This book is actually filled with quite a few business lessons, leadership lessons and overall life lessons that most of us probably need to hear. ...

    If you only read one book this year, this should be it!! It is not very often that I slow down reading a book, because I didn?t want it to end. Harrison?s story challenges one to look beyond their comforts and step into the incredibly transforming lifestyle of living by faith. In h...

    So I didn't get this book for free, and I didn't pay for it. Got it at the public library, so here is an unbiased review. I love a good memoir, and this reads like one, albeit quite long. However, it's almost more of a memoir of charity: water than it is of its founder. I LOVE the podc...

    Where do I even begin? I had to break up my review in 2 parts. Part 1. Scott?s Writing: I?m a self-published author and a female construction worker living in Las Vegas. My start time is 6 a.m. at the Resorts World tower. I found myself getting to work earlier and earlier to re...

    I very rarely give five stars to any book, but this one checked all the right boxes for me. If you are not familiar with charity:water and Scott Harrison?s story he spends about the first third of the book giving a great history. One learns about his childhood, his family, life event...

    Thirst is a feel good, inspiring read. Scott Harrison is a fantastic story teller who exemplifies how one person can inspire countless others to get behind something they believe in and take action. Scott's stories paint a clear picture of what life in water deprived parts of Africa is...

    I have really wrestled with my feelings about this book and how to deal with my issues. I considered just leaving some stars and be done with it. I don't think that is fair to any of the parties involved, not to the writer, the publisher or those who will consider purchasing the book. ...

    I received an early copy from Crown via my graduate program. Scott's story is tremendous and amazing. While reading it, there were times where I felt a presence come over me, as if something unseen resonated with what I was reading. Please buy this book when it's released in Octobe...

    This is my #1 for the year. ...

    Amazing, touching story of a man on a path to reinvent himself and make a difference in the world ...

    Fairly well written for someone who's not really a writer, and just an amazing and inspiring story. I own a hardcover if anyone wants to borrow it. ...

    This is a very personal story by Scott Harrison of his journey from a confused, rebellious young boy whose mother had a strange illness and whose parents became zealous in their faith to a selfish, partying young man to the founder of a wonderful charity hoping to make a real differenc...

    This book solidifies Harrison's seat at the table alongside Nicholas Kristof and Dr. Paul Farmer. His journey around the world and back again is rivaled only by his quest to quench the world's insatiable thirst for clean water. While Harrison discovers and cultivates his Christian fait...

    What I loved: The parts when Scott focused on the stories of those chairity:water serves and the stories of people who have partnered with him along the way. It read like a thank you & celebration of their efforts. I was awed and reminded of the magnitude of the potable water prob...

    Extremely inspirational and at times truly unbelievable. This book is actually filled with quite a few business lessons, leadership lessons and overall life lessons that most of us probably need to hear. ...

    If you only read one book this year, this should be it!! It is not very often that I slow down reading a book, because I didn?t want it to end. Harrison?s story challenges one to look beyond their comforts and step into the incredibly transforming lifestyle of living by faith. In h...

    So I didn't get this book for free, and I didn't pay for it. Got it at the public library, so here is an unbiased review. I love a good memoir, and this reads like one, albeit quite long. However, it's almost more of a memoir of charity: water than it is of its founder. I LOVE the podc...

    Where do I even begin? I had to break up my review in 2 parts. Part 1. Scott?s Writing: I?m a self-published author and a female construction worker living in Las Vegas. My start time is 6 a.m. at the Resorts World tower. I found myself getting to work earlier and earlier to re...

    I very rarely give five stars to any book, but this one checked all the right boxes for me. If you are not familiar with charity:water and Scott Harrison?s story he spends about the first third of the book giving a great history. One learns about his childhood, his family, life event...

    Thirst is a feel good, inspiring read. Scott Harrison is a fantastic story teller who exemplifies how one person can inspire countless others to get behind something they believe in and take action. Scott's stories paint a clear picture of what life in water deprived parts of Africa is...

    Was fortunate enough to get an advanced copy of Thirst, which is truly one of the best books I?ve ever read. I came in knowing a lot about Charity Water, as I?m a monthly donor and have had a profound respect for the work they do ever since hearing Scott Harrison on Bill Simmons?...

    If you?re looking for a book of transformation. A book that will inspire you. I book of motivation and true transparency. A book to awaken your inner spirit, your soul, this is a book that will do it. I was taken through a series of emotions. I must says these real life stories awake...

    There isn't a stronger or more personal connection between humans then the art of storytelling. Great stories are full of hope. Great stories define who we are. And great stories empower the audience. The book Thirst and Scott's story will leave you inspired, appreciative and motivated...

    There were lots of interesting parts of this book. I loved hearing about how they took the organization from dysfunction to functioning. I was super curious about his mother's story, as someone who has had experience with environmental sensitivities. I liked learning about his fundrais...

    What a cool book! I liked getting to follow Scott's journey from club promoter to non-profit founder. I didn't know anything about the NYC club scene, and it was interesting to see it through his eyes. I felt like I was along for the ride as he described his faith journey, his time wit...

    This book shared Scott Harrison?s first hand account of his personal story and the rise of Charity: Water. My favorite parts were when he shared many of villages pre and post water because the zeitgeist of the villages were dramatically shifted. I thought that he could have shortened...

    Inspiring and moving Until I read this book, I have to admit that I wasn?t aware of the severity of the global water crisis that many countries are facing and their plight. But after reading this, I want to pledge something for it by spreading the awareness and contributing as mu...

    First off I was not aware how much of Christianity played a vital role in the author's story. It is always good to read a story about someone who was walking a life that was of emptiness and unfulfillment then gets awoken and changes his trajectory. It seems to me that the skill sets h...

    Inspirador! Um dos melhores livros que li esse ano. A sinceridade e desprendimento com os quais Scott Harrison relata sua jornada até aqui dão um tom leve e empolgante para um tema que nem sempre pode parecer interessante: caridade e serviço. Terminei o livro me sentindo entusiasmad...

    I was hoping for a bit more insight into the creativity and storytelling behind Harrison?s org charity: water, but I was not disappointed with this book. I was as blown away with his ability to inform, engage and inspire through the written word as I was hearing him speak. The storie...
