Three Weeks Until Mother's Day

Yes, it is closer than you think -- May 11.

Want a great, uplifting, people book for Mom? This is it.
This is not a "science book." It is a story of courageous people saving lives during some of the worst storms of the last half-century. That is what you would expect an author to say. Here is what the readers say. Amazon:

Barnes & Noble:
What do the professional critics say?

To be quite honest it is the best book I've read in years. I couldn't put it down and read the whole thing in a day and a half. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an exciting book where you can learn something too.

This is a fascinating book, full of suspense, telling it like it is, and a great learning experience without realizing just how much of what you read will stay with you. I highly recommend this book.

I had put Warnings on my holiday gift list instead of just going out and buying it.

WHAT A MISTAKE! I got this book as an Easter gift and immediately began devouring it. I was instantly sorry I hadn't bought it sooner.


Smith skillfully makes this and other controversies seem not just important, but exciting. 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.

So, read the reviews yourself and get Mom (or Dad for Father's Day) a copy of Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather.
