Weather for Americans.

Quite informative but hard to understand unless if you are American with its use of imperial units.

informative yet oddly formatted

Very USA focused. less of a 101 and more historically based. first half was concise and informative but would have benefited greatly from images. probably best read in book for to refer back to this section like a glossary. confusing position on climate change with a section on galactic forces being presented after the climate change chapter, implying non-anthropogenic causes for climate change. Weirdly outdated when mentioning landline phones or specific weather apps.

Entertaining but lightweight

Yes, it says "101." But it's not like a 101 course in college. It's more like a coffee table book with interesting vignettes and factoids. There is some good information about how weather works (which is what I wanted), but there's also a lot of filler: stories about past storms, advice on how to prepare for a hurricane, tips for getting a job as a meteorologist, etc. Good info, I suppose, but not what I was wanting to learn. Still, it's told with humor and is a good solid three stars.

reads like an encyclopedia of weather

short snippets on a sequence of many unrelated topics. interesting info, but not connected into a listenable story.
