By Richard and Liz TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 15 May 2015
A very real look behind the filming of the series, Tornado Chasers. The foreword by Reed Timmer tells how he always wanted to be a storm chaser but it not until he moved to Oklahoma in 1998 and experienced the deadly F5 tornado in Moore that his motivation increased to chase as many tornadoes as possible.

Ken Cole, Reeds OU classmate is the main author and writes of his memories of the 2013 season of Tornado Chaser which as Reed says was "one of the most historic and tragic years" he has ever experienced.

Relive the disappointment of busts i.e. nothing happening, tension between team members, exhaustion, the excitement of Jim Cantore joining them for some of the time, the feeling Ken had when he heard of a tornado hitting where his dad lived and not knowing whether he was a live or not, the loss of storm chasers and so much more.

Well-written and an interesting read. There is way more to storm chasing than the thrill of the chase.

HASH(0x9daa6e1c) out of 5 stars Tornado Chasers (behind the scenes) 30 April 2015
By Christy C. Asberry - Published on Amazon.com

I chose this book because the TV series "Tornado Alley" & "Storm Chasers" fascinate me. I watch any episode or series I can regarding weather and other natural disasters. This may seem odd, but having an M.Ed in Mental Health makes me more observant and analytical. In a way, weather is like human behavior. It is ever changing, unpredictable - sometimes totally frightening; sometimes interesting.

This book is kind of like the TV series, only it's more off a log or set of journal entries made over the course of time as professionals, such as Jim Cantore, Mike Bettes, and others chase storms and tornadoes, which they in turn report back to us. You will also read about the deaths, injuries of three storm chasers, the close call of Mike Bettes & his team. I loved reading this... it charged full of excitement and overturning reports, missing scenes that we may have missed on the show/s... If you enjoy the TV series, weather patterns, etc., you will enjoy this. I highly recommend - I want more!

HASH(0x9db87300) out of 5 stars Good, quick read. 6 Dec. 2014

Concise and informative look at the goings-on behind the scenes of the series Tornado Chasers. Once the crews were introduced, we were led on the season's first chases across Tornado Alley. After a few early-season busts, the crews soon had more than they could handle once the big devastating tornadoes started appearing. Reading about the elation of the initial sighting, followed by the adrenaline rush of the chase, and then the ultimate post-euphoric moods that each of the chasers felt presented a very real humanizing aspect of what really goes on. Interesting also was learning how the chasers would feel after witnessing the devastation, and how sometimes they'd abandon the chase in order to assist those who had just lost everything. Decent short read, especially for those of us who have that strong desire to chase storms someday.

A very short overview of the production of tornado chasers following Reed Timmer. Mostly production woes and very few tornadoes, though it does close out during the historic El Reno event. It was quite bold of Reed to step up and become HQ for the recovery effort following the deaths of Tim Samaras and crew. Also describes how the final episodes were dedicated to Twistex. By far it was a moving close to this sometimes pedestrian log.

Storm chasers have worked to increase early warnings of tornadic activity and have been successful. While they often got excited during the making of the television program referenced in the book title, they also felt saddened by the loss of lives and property. I live in tornado alley in the USA, so can identify totally with those emotions. This is a very well-written book.
