Thirst: A Story of Redemption, Compassion, and a Mission to Bring Clean Water to the World

By Scott Harrison
Desperately unhappy at age 28, Scott Harrison left behind his high-flying life as a nightclub promoter to pursue something more meaningful. In 2006, he founded charity: water, and has since raised more than $300 million, bringing clean drinking water to more than eight million people worldwide. Thirst tells the story of Harrison’s journey and how he built one of the world’s most trusted nonprofits via high-impact programs aimed at one of the world’s most pressing challenges—accessing clean water.


    REVIEW QUOTES
"Thirst is a story about all of us. In sharing his own remarkable journey, Scott shows us how to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, how to find hope in despair, and how simple acts of generosity can transform everything from what we believe about ourselves to how we connect with each other. In the end, Thirst is about what matters most. Love." --Brené Brown, Ph.D., author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Braving the Wilderness
