New Scientist changes old formula and crashes badly,
This review is from: How to Make a Tornado: The strange and wonderful things that happen when scientists break free (New Scientist) (Paperback)Previous books in this series were brilliant quirky collections excerpted from New Scientist's Last Word column - readers asked the questions and other readers answered them with wit, expertise and imagination (early 'cloud sourcing' before the popularisation of the web). What a shame that NS is now living off its laurels and pointlessly throwing away a winning formula. 'How to make a tornado' is an inferior compendium of scientific articles, interspersed with unamusing and uninsightful editorial drivel. Buy the earlier books in the series instead!
