Page by page this book is an example of how dramatic weather can be. The professionalism and dedication of the photographers is seen throughout, and the brief explanations of events never takes away from the photos themselves. The authors let the pictures do the talking, never sacrificing page space for long winded descriptions of events. The final section, where they talk about the technical side of storm chasing and forecasting, is a welcome inclusion and helps you appreciate the time and effort that goes into the work.

As soon as I saw it advertised in the Daily Mirror I had to have it, so I ordered it the day it got released. Two days later I was immersed in the spectacular views of tornados, hail and wall clouds. Trust me, this has only spurred on my hope of becoming a Storm Chaser one day. Following the diaries of Mike and Eric is truly inspiring to any reader, and I'd buy it just for the pictures! Larger than life, and full of real-time tension, this is a value-for-money buy, and a great purchase all round.

If you have any interest in our weather then this book is a must!! I've loved weather, especially the extreme kind, for as I can remember!! The photography is stunning, both visually & technically & the text follows the chases brilliantly.

Get it !!! Well worth it !!!

I bought this book for my daughter for xmas and she loves it. It contains some great photographs and the text is informative without being to deep or scientific.
