Say goodbye to looking up and wondering what's coming next!
on 24 August 2010
If you've ever wondered aloud what sort of cloud was drifting across your field of vision as you lay back in your garden lounger. If you've ever seen clouds rolling in as you pass the point of no-return between your house and the pub and wondered if you should have brought a coat. If you've got fed up with other 'spotting' hobbies because the focus of your hobby keeps flying or buzzing away before you can get an identification book out. Then cloud spotting and this book is for you.
The guide is very logically laid out with each cloud having its own section. There's a handy quick reference bit at the front with small pictures of clouds and the pages you need to turn to for a more detailed identification. Each section has a description of what a particular cloud can tell you about the weather due to come your way. This is one of the clearest and best laid out books, of its type, I have ever seen.
I've bought several copies for other people who, upon seeing my copy, have asked for their own. There's quite a group of us at work across the world who now are members of the cloud spotting fraternity and have copies of this book. I can't help but feel that this is how loony cults start!
Buy this book and join us!
