An excellent, all round, easy to read weather guide,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Cambridge Guide to the Weather (Paperback)
If you're looking for an easy to read paperback on waether, this is the book you've been searching for! It contains chapters on observing, mapping, and forcasting the weather among others. The book is very easy to read (I managed it in one night!) but detailed enough to go back to and read again. It is so up-to-date it contains information on global warming, el Nino and severe waether conditions. Most of all, unlike others I have read, it doesn't solely concentrate on the America's! If your looking for a book for the budding Michael Fish in your life, this is it....it even tells you why he was technically correct when he said "no hurricane" back in 1997!!! The book has an excellent further reading list and contains addresses of some very good web-sites...Definately to be recomended.
