Format: Hardcover
Very good quick read, just under 200 pages. Introduces the weather systems and all its components i.e. ways of forecasting, measuring and relating to weather in our every day lives. Does what its supposed to, informs well on how the weather works but not too an unbelievably difficult extent- simple language used. Definately recommended!

Quite interesting but a little bit too basic. It told you about different weather patterns but didnt really explain why. If you are looking for a book to explain the whys and hows of different weather conditions I wouldnt really recommend this book. Good price and ok as a quick read though.

Bought this book along with another weather book as our children were doing a project about it. This is very interesting and can be picked up and put down whenever without missing the point.Lots of little nuggets of information to keep you interested. Not so suitable for younger readers.

This is a well-written little book which presents pretty basic meteorological facts concisely and in a friendly manner. A scientific book it ain't, but I have enjoyed reading it and admit to having learned quite a few useful facts. It is also good value at the price.

Not a complicated book but interesting, written by someone who clearly loves the subject. A good introduction to the weather.

What could be better than talking about the weather? Why, reading a book about it, of course! In simplified language, we read here about various types of weather phenomenon, including wind, rain, clouds and how these things are formed. You also get info on how to do various experiments. All in all, a good read.

Goob basic coverage of the subject but seems to rush towards the end. Worth busying as a general overview of the subject

An enjoyable and informative book. However, I believe a hard copy would be more useful as a reference than the Kindle edition
