Product description

Review

"Richly researched, exciting... It is both scientific and cultural history, of prizewinning potential and as fresh and exhilerating throughout as a strong sea breeze." (James McConnachie Sunday Times)

"Superbly researched and grippingly written... Moore is at least as interested in the personalities and their rivalries, and the sheer spendour and catastrophies of weather itself - storms and shipwrecks, heatwaves and floods (all vividly described) - as by the science. And he weaves it together, deftly picking up threads left dangling in earlier chapters, darting across continents, embracing swashbuckling sea captains and fastidious bureaucrats, penny-pinching politians and mad inventors, with as sharp an eye for eccentricity, absurdity and tragedy as for genius. The result is a panorama of the entire Victorian era." (Richard Morrison The Times)

Book Description

This is the story of our greatest obsession: a gripping account of the sailors, scientists and inventors who sought to understand the weather
