Another Rave Review

There is a new 5-Star review of Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather. Here are some excerpts:

Amazing WorkMarch 6, 2015

What a thrilling roller coaster ride Mike Smith conducts in this weather/meteorology masterpiece! ...

Lessons that should have been learned from earlier disasters weren't. Find out how about the events of Hurricane Andrew and Katrina showed a breakdown in government. The reader will get a great feel for how the forecasters and meteorologists due their best to save lives but unfortunately bureaucracy can kill so many.

Don't be surprised if this book sparks your interest so much that you will want to learn much more about any one disaster presented in this book. Mike Smith has inked the most complete account that one could do in the 284 pages ... I have read many books related to weather and I can tell you this is the best one so far.

Amazing piece of work here. I can't recommend it enough.


If you have not read Warnings, what are you waiting for? It would be a terrific book to take on your spring vacation.

It is interesting the reviewer also wrote:

Learn about ...his love for trains, which played a critical part for his interest in warnings..

This is the "week of the train" at the Smith House. More later.
