1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Richard Eastman on February 16, 2001
Format: Paperback
One of the best general interest weather books I've seen. The focus is on Eastern weather but the concepts Keen talks about really apply to weather all around the world. Inversions, fronts, atmospheric layers, hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms and all the rest of it. Nicely illustrated and the writing style is more interesting than the usual textbook or reference book. What I really like is that it goes into more detail than books like "USA Today's The Weather Book" but without getting so technical as to go over the head of the lay reader. Very accessible and definitely recommended.
