literature on weather?
Hi there,
Can you recommend good and somewhat entertaining books about weather?
Infotainment is the keyword here... I'd like something that gives me a detailed knowledge of weather phenomena and at the same time has some great interesting stories of the past which serve as examples; something like stories told from victims of severe weather. And of course with neat pictures.
If that is not conformable I'd like to have a book of both.

I've read "The great deluge" about Katrina is supposed to be good.

My favorite: Isaac's Storm.

It's by Erik Larson and is about the Galveston hurricane of 1900. It's very entertaining literature, and is based on factual information.

Amazon says it's just accumulated reports of weather-related incidents, though interesting. But the narrater doesn't seem to have an opinion or explanation for the occurences./thumbsdow
Do you agree with that, or do you have a different feeling about it?

the best book for weather pictures and weather in general, is Weather a visual guide by bruce buckley, edward J. hopkins and richard whitaker. the pictures are jaw-dropping.:pirate:

for records of extreme weather with some really cool pictures, get EXTREME WEATHER a guide and record book by christopher c. burt.

for general knowledge about weather or any questions that you may have, query this link.
