Warnings by Mike Smith featured on the CBS Evening News.
It’s the season for gifts galore: Mother’s Day, Graduation and Father’s Day are all right around the corner. I’d like you to consider giving a copy of Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather. It is an exciting book to read and readers from 9 years old to 90 years old have told me that they felt like they were in the middle of the storm action.
The book is an uplifting story (note: not a heavy “science book”) of how meteorologists unraveled the mystery of storms and applied that knowledge to save lives in tornadoes, hurricanes, and in wind shear dangerous to airliners. While a true story, it is written in the style of a mystery novel and has received excellent reviews. Amazingly, Warnings even anticipated what happened when Lambert Airport in St. Louis Friday evening!
A good book is a gift treasured by most people. So, if you enjoy reading this blog or just enjoy a fast-paced, fun book pick up a copy of Warnings. You can buy it online here or from any of the major retail booksellers (links here on the right).
