“The most informative, eye-opening, mind-blowing book that I ever recall reading.”

Henry Bauer, Dean Emeritus, Arts and Sciences, Virginia Tech

 

Synopsis

A fantastic voyage through water, revealing a hidden universe teeming with physical activity and providing answers so simple that any curious person can understand.

Author, Gerald Pollack and colleagues at his University of Washington laboratory have discovered that water is NOT always H2O. When touching most surfaces, water transforms itself into so‐called Exclusion Zone (EZ) water, whose formula is H3O2. EZ water differs in all respects from H2O. And, there is a lot of it, everywhere.

The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor documents this fundamental discovery and uses it to explain common everyday phenomena, which you have inevitably seen but not really understood.

Professor Gerald Pollack writes in a clear, eloquent style. Whimsical illustrations and simple diagrams help get his points across in a reader‐friendly manner perfectly suitable for non‐experts.

 

Praise

"The most significant scientific discovery of this century. What strikes me above all is the elegant simplicity of [Pollack’s] experimental approach. It takes our understanding of the most vital substance for life on earth a quantum leap forward. Many of the experiments can be done on the kitchen table, and you don’t even need a microscope to see the results. Add to that a highly congenial and unassuming personality, and it’s no wonder Pollack is attracting undergraduates and graduates like flies, not to mention many collaborators around the world.” Mae-Wan Ho, Author, Living Rainbow H2O; Director, Institute of Science and Society.

"Dr. Pollack is one of the pioneers in this field, and his discoveries can be expected to have important implications." Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate, Cambridge University.

"The most original thinker I have ever met." Csaba Galambos, University of Colorado.

"Einstein has got nothing on Pollack. Pollack has the uncanny ability to pinpoint the right questions and grasp the simple ideas." Capt. T.C. Randall, Author, Forbidden Healing.

"This is like getting new glasses! The clarity is astounding." Charles Cushing, Independent Scientist.

“Fantastic material with revolutionary insights. What impresses me most is that the experiments are visually instantly accessible.” Helmut Roniger, Consulting physician.

“As good a page-turner as a Dan Brown novel. … this book has a folksy style that I know will be very popular.” David Anick, Harvard University.

With balance and grace, Pollack seems to have come closest to presenting a 'unified field' vision of matter through the lens of water." John Fellows, Independent Scientist.

"This amazing book has changed my understanding of all the processes going on in water which I was confident I knew about — the understanding that dictated my many years of teaching and organized my research. I must now come to terms with the demonstration that water is not just a medium in which physics and chemistry happen, but a machine that powers and manages physics and chemistry." Martin Canny, Australian National University.

Brilliant! Read the last chapter first." Molly McGee, University of Washington.

Synopsis

An award winning book that challenges the current wisdom of how cells work in a visionary, provocative, and accessible way... reads like a detective story...

This highly praised book emphasizes the role of cell water and the gel-like nature of the cell, building on these features to explore the mechanisms of communication, transport, contraction, division, and other essential cell functions. Lucidly written for the non-expert, the book is profound enough for biologists, chemists, physicists and engineers to devour.

 

Praise

Top prize - Best in ShowSociety for Technical Communication, 2003.

“An eloquent and accessible statement of a heresy that has smoldered at the fringe of orthodox biology for about 30 years” Science 293: 5530, 2001. Thomas Stossel, Harvard

“As interesting as any nonfiction book on the NY Times bestseller list” Pharm. Res. 18: 1804-1805. Kinam Park, Purdue

“I was completely sucked in upon reading the first page. This is such great stuff. I found myself ‘making time’ to read it.” Erwin Vogler, Penn State University.

 

from Amazon...

5 Stars “This book is heretical and courageous, and - if it can escape burning - may become a seminal landmark in our understanding of living systems.” Stuart R. Hameroff

5 Stars “An unorthodox conceptual view is put forth that attempts to globally explain how the living cell functions. We are rewarded by the unparalleled joy of feeling part of a discovery itself. This intellectual journey is well worth every minute. And, who knows, Pollack might be right, too!” Miklos Kellermayer

5 Stars “I applaud the work. I recommend it as required reading for just about everybody: the writing style makes it accessible for even high school students, but it is not too plebian to challenge even a professor or researcher in the area.” Jacob Hantla

 

Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life: A New, Unifying Approach to Cell Function was honored with two awards in 2003. “Distinguished Award,” awarded by the Puget Sound Society of Technical Communication. Cells, Gels also received that society’s, “Best in Show” award.

Synopsis

An award winning book that topples the widely accepted edifice of understanding on how muscles contract, replacing it with a simpler construct that better fits the evidence.

 

Praise

“Muscles and Molecules, written by Gerry Pollack, is a beautifully produced, single-authored text by one of our more thoughtful, if unconventional, authorities on the mechanism of muscular contraction… Clearly and elegantly written, and with a charm and grace not often seen in modern scientific writing, the book is beautifully produced, well-indexed and exquisitely illustrated. Both the author and publishers are to be congratulated on publishing a book of this quality for such a reasonable price.” Arnold M. Katz, M. D., Journal of Cellular and Molecular Cardiology.

“For those who wish to use this book for gaining knowledge of muscle contraction in line with dogmatic views, this book will be a rude surprise. However, for those who believe that interesting research is not to reinforce existing dogmas but to challenge them for the purpose of opening new frontiers, this book will be most exciting and attractive. In other words, this book is not for the faint-hearted who would like to believe whatever is written without asking questions, but for those who are independent thinkers.” Haruo Sugi, Ph.D, Science of the Human Body.

“Pollack states in his Preface, ‘At the very least, I hope this book reestablishes the legitimacy of controversy–for controversy, after all, is the life blood of science.’ In fact, this book might reestablish the legitimacy of controversy if individuals take the time to address his arguments… He challenges students and scientists to take a fresh look at the established dogma… most upper division undergraduates and graduate students could easily follow the arguments.” Richard Lieber, Ph.D, Journal of Biomechanics.

“The opening sentence sets the tone of the book. ‘The field of muscle contraction is one in which controversy is absent,’ deliberately placed to ruffle the first feathers. But his writing style is good-humoured and lively, and few will want to put it down after reading the preface. (Do not start at the end and flick backwards – this work is to be read like a novel.)” Clive Bashaw, Ph.D, Journal of Muscle research and Cell Motility.


Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion was awarded the “Excellence Award” by the Puget Sound Society of Technical Communication in 1991.
