Product Description

Review

It is sometimes said, with some justification, that those who are specialists in a particular field often express themselves when speaking of their subject in terms that are impenetrable to those of us who are not fellow specialists. No such criticism could be levelled at Jon Shonk… I have no hesitation in recommending this book. --Weather (Royal Meteorological Society)

Introducing Meteorology is a most welcome addition to the bookshelves of students, interested amateurs, meteorology educators, and those who simply enjoy a readable, affordable book on the weather. Jon Shonk has created a marvelously succinct and up-to­ date introduction to weather that serves a variety of audiences and purposes extremely well. I hope this is only the first of many excellent books from this young scientist. --BAMS (American Meteorological Society)

Over the vears there has been quite a deluge of books on the weather but John Shonks Introducing Meteorology, A Guide to Weather is affordable, concise yet full of information. It is very readable and is generously illustrated with an excellent balance between pictures and diagrams, all in colour. --Weather Eye

I've found this a great introduction and guide to meteorology. I can imagine that it would be a fantastic introduction for interested amateurs and as someone who works in this field, I find it a very useful reference. Beautifully illustrated and a nice size (~ 8 inches tall) - so it's easy to pop in a handbag rather than being a huge textbook that takes up all your bookcase space!

Excellent little book for beginners like me. Doesn't go into details too deeply. I just wanted something I could read and have just a little bit more knowledge on the the subject. Good buy and a very reasonable price.

In the last couple of years I have been very interested in clouds and been studying them for some time. Then I started looking at the weather as a whole and wanted to understand it better. This book does this, it's def for new starters to meteorology. Get it!

This was a surprise gift for a bright young man. He now understands a lot more about the weather, can anticipate how it will affect his 'hay-fever' and beloved tennis.
