What is annoying about this book, well basically the fact that everything can be found on Wikipedia, but if you are in college you will need this book so buy it then resell it here so we can save some college students some money. This book is not a bad read, but seriously if Wikipedia entries are more informative there is a damn problem.
With regard to the item itself, this this is one of the ubiquitous Pearson published college textbooks. This item did not come with any additional resources like a CD or digital code, but it was not needed for my class. Text is a good size for reading, there are lots of graphics - important for a science textbook - and the book is organized in the usual way with a chapter summary, glossary and content questions at the end of each chapter. Much of the information in the book can be easily found via free resources like NASA, NOAA, and other legitimate organizations. I doubt I'll use this book outside of class or even after as it is too basic to be a true reference book, but it is a good textbook.
The truth is, how much could meteorology have changed in two or so years right?
This book does the job that I need. It has everything the professor asks and it was a fraction of the cost. I got the paper cover because it was even cheaper.
If your professors requires the 13th edition buy this one. You won't regret it.
