Professor Pollack takes us on a fantastic voyage through water, showing us a hidden universe teeming with physical activity that provides answers so simple that any curious person can understand. In conversational prose, Pollack relentlessly documents just where some scientists may have gone wrong with their Byzantine theories, and instead lays a simple foundation for understanding how changes of water structure underlie most energetic transitions of form and motion on Earth. Pollack invites us to open our eyes and re-experience our natural world, to take nothing for granted, and to reawaken our childhood dream of having things make sense.
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.
