Compared to Thom and Pratt I found that in the Oxford books:
* Concepts are explained well using suitable amounts of material. Explanations are not overly summarised or rushed and they are well paced. The text is well-written and the diagrams are clear.
* Presentation is well structured. Information that is presented later builds upon and reinforces information that was presented earlier.
The Oxford books have more material than Pratt or Thom but I actually found them to be much easier and interesting reading than either of the other two.
Here is a link to the Oxford PPL Meteorology text: Meteorology for PPL and Beyond: Meteorology v. 4: Weather Theory, Met Reports, Met Forecasts (Skills for Flight)
There are numerous illustrations and diagrams to explain all the difficult theories behind meteorological phenomena which can effect a flight and this is one of the book's bonuses.
Thom has also made it easy for the reader to understand the laws that apply to aviation by taking a step-by-step approach.
I would highly recommend this book.
