A Review of "Warnings"

I ran across a 2015 review of Warnings that I had not previously seen. It is here. Some excerpts:

In “Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather”, Smith gives a fast-paced description of the most remarkable storms that have defined modern times. He explains how the forecasting of weather changes has been transformed into a well-defined scientific discipline... 

The language used in the book makes it an amazingly easy-to-read publication. One does not need to have a meteorological background to appreciate the fascinating submissions made in the book. Complex weather phenomena like tornadoes are explained in graphic details for all to understand them. Numerous photographs in the book make it a vivid, interesting treatise. The fascinating nature of the book is amplified by the actuality that it is replete with suspense." 

Over the Easter weekend:

And, just a little while ago:
We are coming up on the tenth anniversaries of the catastrophic April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak in the South and the horrific 2011 Joplin Tornado, and well as the 30th anniversary of the Wichita-Andover Tornado -- the 5th strongest tornado in recorded history. 

Whether for Mother's Day, Father's Day, spring break, graduation or just a great read, I hope you'll consider reading the important, yet entertaining, stories in Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather.
