Still Time for a Great Christmas Book

If you have someone on your gift list who is interested in weather, a pilot, a sailor or just likes a good non-fiction read, there is still time to give them a copy of Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather. It is not a heavy "science book." It is the story of courageous people saving lives in the biggest storms of our lifetimes.

This account of people who do something about the weather should appeal to just about anyone who enjoys talking about it. --- Publishers Weekly

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.  --- University of Nebraska
