The Plan that Changed the World   April 3, 2016
by John Gaudet

An unusual book that delves into the water world of old Egypt, something that is not seen in any of the numerous modern books about Egypt, most of which take up the monuments and the history of the pharaohs. It also deals with the modern world of filter swamps and the Sudd, the enormous swamp in the Sudan that is the last major natural freshwater fisheries in the world. A unique and well written book that is easy to read with something of interest and relevance for everyone.

Papyrus  March 27, 2016
by A. van Oss

I spent childhood years in Africa, the land of papyrus, and in school used a fountain pen and paper (indeed, I still do). John Gaudet connects the past with the present, and the future, by focusing on one of the world's most fascinating plants and its astonishing potential.

Three cheers for Papyrus Power!
