Greatest Show on Earth, but not here,
This review is from: The Cloudspotter's Guide: The Science, History, and Culture of Clouds (Hardcover)
"The Greatest Free Show on Earth is Right Above Your Head" is what I always told my children. Thankfully they too have come to enjoy the delight that is above our heads every day, so I was happy to buy them this book as a Christmas present. Ouch! It is an excellent treatise about the "theory and practice" of clouds I suppose, but the monochrome pictures are disappointing.
Full of fascinating facts and figures it does add tremendously to a person's understanding of what is going on "up there", but the lack of good quality colour illustrations detracts from what could otherwise have been an excellent book. I would have willingly paid a lot more for the book if it had better photos.
So, if you want to learn about clouds, this is your book, but do also buy one that has good colour illustrations to complement it.
