This text is an excellent resource for an Introductory Meteorology course. Each chapter and topic built upon learning from the previous chapters and topics. This text not only covered detailed information about all meteorological topics, but also contained current event information from the past decade, news clippings, and common questions that may confuse students. The animations and extras included on the additional CD provided an added resource for further learning.

This textbook's style is one of my favorites--it starts from square one and assumes you have no previous knowledge in meteorology. This immediately makes this a great textbook for beginners, students, and those simply looking to teach themselves. The book has a simple setup with chapters, sub-chapters, titled sections, and bolded terms that makes the book easy to navigate when looking for quick answers. In addition, the book is relatively thin and lightweight, making it easier to carry along with you.

I would definitely recommend this textbook to anyone looking to gain foundational knowledge in meteorology.

This book is extremely well-written and explains concepts of weather, climate, and the analysis/forecasting of weather and climate in a clear and concise manner. The illustrations in the book reinforce understanding of the concepts. This textbook is appropriate for undergraduates, graduate students being introduced to meteorology, and professionals who need to understand weather and climate for their work. I strongly recommend this book.

I bought this book for the purpose of school. My professor is still using this book, even though it is old. Great price on here compared to the bookstore.

This is definitely a niche book. If you like science, weather, or the atmosphere this is an excellent read. It's straightforward and easy to follow. A textbook for sure, but it is easy enough to understand for the lay read and can provide a basic understanding of the topic for those interested in the subject of weather and how it works.

When I told my classmates what I paid for this text, many of them groaned. They had paid 3 to 4 times as much for the book at the college bookstore.

This is a good introduction to general weather behavior as well as extreme weather phenomena. You will need some basic knowledge of either physics or chemistry, especially the gas laws. This is not a book for those only interested in personal forcasting, but it can help you understand the major factors in forcasting.
