Great Books for Father's Day

I'm happy to say that we are starting to run low on copies of When the Sirens Were Silent and are considering a second printing.

  • Recommended for summer reading. Eye-opening and insightful, Dr. Roger Pielke, University of Colorado
  • Compelling. An important read., Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang

Regardless, we can provide you with autographed copies of either Sirens or Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather for Father's Day if you get the order to us right away.

  • I got this book as an Easter gift and immediately began devouring it. I was instantly sorry I hadn't bought it sooner.  -- Author Mary Shafter
  • Meteorology, in his telling, has the same bare-knuckle energy we see in politics or sports. These battles, many of which Smith himself fought in, reveal how much of our modern, weather-safe lifestyle is contingent on personalities, and could have gone another way.

    While weather forecasters often appear starchy and bland, Smith makes the weather into an urgent concern, and a remarkable victory. This story turns the weather into a quest, and meteorologists into the most unlikely heroes in recent literature.  
    -- Prof. Kevin Nenstiel
If you would like to order, please send $25 for Warnings and $15 for Sirens ($35 for both) to: Mike Smith Enterprises, LLC, 4031 N. Tara Circle, Wichita, Kansas. For Kansas residents, we pay the sales tax so the price does not change.
