    This book can be summarized in a few lines.First, just like in the past, wars will be fought for resource acquisition as against what Huntington had predicted in his Clash of Civilization book. Second, water is becoming more precious than any other resources; even oil. Hence, water is going to dictate next geopolitical future of the world.That's it!
