Warnings might make a great gift for Father’s Day!
Here is a recent review from Barnes & Noble’s web site:
This is an excellent book! I loved EVERY page and EVERY minute reading it. It’s written purposefully to not read like a technical science or boring history book and is a quick, very enjoyable read. The book reads more like a suspense thriller or mystery novel as Smith keeps the reader ever eager to hear more throughout his story-telling method of advancing the history of meteorology. Along the way the reader learns a tremendous amount of very interesting things – but the secret is they’re presented almost as sidebars to the main story of a given storm. Not only does Smith advance the history of weather forecasting, but also mixes in the psyche of the individuals drawn to the profession of weather forecaster, a bit of his own biography and a whole host of interesting weather facts. And the most clever part of it all is how much one learns reading this book almost without realizing it. I hated to put it down and would highly recommend this book to readers of all interests – even those with the remotest interest in weather.
It is available in hardcover or, if you wish to give Dad a Kindle or other eBook device, it is available in electronic form, as well. Kindle version is here.
