By Amos A. Magliocco on March 13, 2008
Format: Paperback
"Mike and Eric seem to have taken the art of storm photography to new heights...they have produced images that speak eloquently about the grandeur and beauty of storms that many people will never see for themselves."

--from the introduction by Dr. Charles A. Doswell III

Full disclosure first: I'm biased because both authors are good friends of mine and my name is mentioned more than once in the text---but I don't make any money from the sales or have any interest other than promoting the book because I think it's an outstanding product.

Mike and Eric are two of the finest weather photographers in the world, and this book is essentially a greatest hits collection from their individual catalogs. Every page contains one stunning image after another, carefully reproduced on heavy, quality stock. The book is organized by chase day or event, with about six individual chases from Mike, four solo chases by Eric, and the rest featuring pictures from both photographers, usually from different angles to give real dramatic range to the imagery. Accompanying the photos is text from both describing their forecast process and tactical decisions they made in the field. Since Mike and Eric have different styles of chasing, this makes for an interesting contrast as well as an entertaining and informative explanation for various shots.

The introduction by tornado scientist and longtime chaser Charles Doswell sets the tone, describing the allure of storm chasing and placing Mike and Eric's work in the context of those who came before them. Toward the end of the book, Dr. Doswell provides an explanation behind the science of severe weather, an easy-to-understand and memorable description of how such sudden mountains of air and water appear on the plains.

I waited a few months to see this book for the first time. I had very high expectations and am normally disappointed when it comes to collections of pictures for storm chasing books. This one not only met, but far exceeded my expectations! The book is of high quality as well. The paper is quite thick as well as the front and back cover. Definitely the most sturdy paperback book I have ever felt. The photographs look great, and are large and even full page photos. The contents are just amazing. Dr. Doswell wrote a great introduction about both authors at the beginning as well as an in depth, but easy to understand explanation of storm structure in the back. This is a must have for anyone who loves storm chasing, is interested in storms, or just likes amazingly beautiful pictures! This book makes a great coffee table book as well as a leisure read. I have never seen pictures of storms the way Eric and Mike have been able to capture them. This work is just truly amazing!! I have nothing bad to say, and cannot say enough. You really will not be disappointed!

A fantastic book with consistently great photographs from two of the best lensmen to roam the Plains. Everyone who likes striking high-quality photographs of Nature at her fierce finest will enjoy this book. It includes a nice dictionary of storm chaser terms as well as a brief but informative section on how these amazing storms work. I had high expectations for this book and it met or exceeded every one.

This book is outstanding and will be a treasure to anyone who loves the majesty, mystery and thrill of our weather world that surrounds us.

You can "hear" the excitement and "feel" the passion that both Mike and Eric have for storm chasing.

The photography is breathtaking, letting you see storm structures beyond your wildest imagination.

An excellent book to keep and to share, you won't be disappointed.

I had high expectations of this book the second I heard it was going to come out. Eric Nguyen and Mike Hollingshead have been amazing photographers and know where to go to acheive the perfect shot. To see and photograph the images they captured requires great forecasting and a great eye to capture the images they did. Anyone interested in weather or photography should buy this book!

Im so glad that Mike is finally getting the recognition he deserves. I started hanging out on his website when I was going to college at Dana in Blair several years ago, and you can see his photography and tracking skills grow over the years. The pics in this book + the commentary take what you have seen every summer and bring it down to you in a way that a straight science text can never do. Kudo's, Mike.

There isn't much I can add to what Amos already said in his review of this great book. As a storm chaser and photographer myself I am in awe of the work Eric and Mike produced. The photos are truely breathtaking and the chase stories are very lively written.
This book is a must have for every storm photographer and for everyone who just loves convective weather phenomena!
