Don't order this book if you want the newer, larger, North American edition that the first reviewer ("This edition is...etc") is describing. The book for sale on this page is the older, smaller edition focused on Brittain. I don't know why Amazon put the wrong review on the page, but it's pretty misleading.
It's also not worth $19, in my opinion. It may be more useful for a European reader, but even then is pretty skimpy and cursory.
I've asked Amazon to exchage it for the newer edition, which sounds like it may be better.

I was really excited when buying this book, because it looked like it will be easy read and I can finally understand the basics that I can use during my sailing trips.
I found this book not very well outlined, and not easy to understand at all.
I will keep looking for the one

Format: Paperback
This American edition of Weather At Sea is in a different and better category than the original British edition on which it is based. The book is about twice as long as the original, and the added detail is all North American related. The explanations of such weather elements as Adiabatic Lapse rate are as good as any I've read. For understanding and using the weather in the kind of sailing most of us do, i.e., mostly alongshore with an occasional short foray offshore, I can know of no better single volume. Even though published in the 1988, it still up to date and just plain good. What it does not do is delve into the kind of modern techniques in which I, personally, have little interest, e.g., faxes, 500 Mb charts, GRIBS, etc. A fine little book. It''s a pity it's no longer in print.
But it can be bought quite inexpensively both new and second hand.

Easy to read. Short, comprehensive book with lots of good info. It's made for the northern hemisphere, but easy to transfer. Great to have on a sailboat - especially for offshore cruising. Smart. I used this in my RYA course and I still keep the copy around.
