My favorite account turned out to be, not one associated with tornadoes, but with lightning. I've never before had such appreciation for the power of lightning. That's not to diminish the effect of his stories about tornado chasing. They're all exhilarating and humbling.
Warren Faidley is a very experienced and highly regarded weather photographer. This book definitely does his work justice as he takes you through some of his adventures with a log-style format. Inserted among the stories are his own photographs, which are in full color and are top-notch in quality. All of his accounts are technically accurate and offer a plethora of knowledge about the subject of severe weather and the discipline needed to accomplish the task of chasing storms. In the rear of the book, he also gives a few pages of information on how to photograph your own weather events. From cameras to lenses to technical specs, he covers it all.
Overall, this book is extremely informative for everyone, whether you're a novice or you've been in the field of meteorology for 50 years. I highly reccommend it to anyone wishing to expand their collection of weather reference.
