A fun way to find out about weather
on 11 September 2012
I really enjoyed this book. It's a fascinating, humorously written mixture of weather-related science, weather trivia and amusing weather anecdotes. I didn't know much about meteorology when I started and found myself being educated whilst I was being amused. I was interested to read that St Swithin's only claim to fame was reconstituting a few eggs. I enjoyed Connelly's wry style of writing: "After roughly 1,000,000,000 years - I think it was on a Thursday - the earth began to cool." This would make ideal reading for anyone with even a cursory interest in meteorology who also wants something entertaining the read. It would also make a good gift for trivia buffs too. It's a firm recommendation from me.
