The book itself is a good undergraduate-level introduction to climate science, and should be read by anyone who want to understand how climate science has evolved, and what the current state of knowledge is. It is going to be much more accessible to a scientifically-oriented layman than some of the graduate level texts. If you've been reading about climate issues on the web, and want an introduction to the science, this will be an invaluable to transition from reading about climate on the web to getting closer to the science itself. Even if you have political issues with climate science, this book lays out the basics of the actual scientific arguments and presents what is known and does a good job at presenting the certainty with which it is known. If we could have arguments about climate based on the content of this book, rather than whatever someone thinks Al Gore says, it would move forwards the entire debate over climate science.

the new edition may be even better, but it's really expensive
