An Amateur Meterologist Delight!

The Seller provided honest and fast service. This bookis excellent, and the included CD provided some great information including Internet sites that provide more great information.


I'm very pleased with this item. I received the textbook in reasonable amount of time and had it before the start of the semester. The book is in great condition for a used book. Pretty much like new.

The best hazardous weather textbook available (Spring 2008).

As an earth and atmospheric science professor who specializes in natural hazards, I've seen probably every text available on this subject. For atmospheric hazards in particular, this is the best textbook I've used. It is easily accessible to second year meteorology undergraduates, and could even be somewhat useful in a graduate course. Although the text emphasizes the meteorological science of atmospheric hazards more than the societal impacts, I've found it to be a good balance for a hazardous weather course. This is a substantial textbook with information on nearly all atmospheric hazards, and it is accompanied by a well-produced CD-ROM (and website), which contain a lot of supplemental material and work very well in the classroom. The print size is large and there are many supporting diagrams that are easy to read. My only complaint is the complete lack of discussion of fog, which is a significant natural hazard. Otherwise, this is a superb textbook.
