Trying to think of something different to give this year for Christmas? How about a copy of Mike's book Warnings : The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather. I have read it, and it was a fascinating read. While entertaining and educational, this nonfiction book reads like a novel. A great read for anyone! It is the story of how the Storm Warning System that is in place today came to be. It covers stories of various tornadoes, the first storm chasers, Hurricane Katrina, and The Delta 191 Airline crash, just to name a few.
The book will be published on May 1, 2010, so for gift-giving, I have included the cover of the book. It could be printed out and given as a "homemade" gift certificate. If you would like to purchase the book in advance, you can contact me at (316)204-9969.
