Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fascinating . . . Moore is the rare science writer who can describe dew point so poetically you feel you’re with him in a twinkling field of white clover on a cool summer morning. Moore’s history is just as evocative, and full of wisdom for modern times.” ―Cynthia Bernett, The New York Times Book Review

“[An] elegantly constructed group biography of the pioneering researchers who, by the end of the 19th century, succeeded in cracking the weather's code. In style and scope, The Weather Experiment recalls the best of its genre.” ―Mike Jay, The Wall Street Journal

“Spirited . . . [The Weather Experiment] blends science, natural history, globe-trotting exploration, and even a little little art history . . . [Moore] is a gifted writer with a nifty turn of phrase.” ―Matthew Prixce, The Boston Globe

“[A] richly researched, exciting book . . . [The Weather Experiment] is both scientific and cultural history, of prize-winning potential, and as fresh and exhilarating throughout as a strong sea breeze.” ―James McConnachie, The Sunday Times

“Moore writes about this band of ad hoc scientists with brio, and it's hard not to be awed and charmed . . . Detailed and insightful, [The Weather Experiment] is as relevant as ever in this era of rapid climate change.” ―Kirkus Review

“Gripping . . . [a] highly readable account of the transformation of modern meteorology from a science of description to a science of prediction . . . Moore's achievement is to imbue [FitzRoy] and his work with palpable narrative life.” ―Richard Hamblyn, The Times Literary Supplement

“With Dickensian detail, Moore brings to life the likes of Francis Beaufort, with 'sabre scars on his arms, reminders of his days at sea,' and the determined Robert FitzRoy . . . Moore captures the suspense and wonder of a scientific discipline's birth.” ―Gemma Tarlach, Discover

“A worthy investigation of the history of weather forecasting.” ―Publishers Weekly

“[A] lucid account of nineteenth-century meteorology . . . Rich in personal details, intellectual conflict, and adventures of men pitted against the elements . . . You will be swept away by the vigor and eloquence of Moore's well-researched narrative.” ―Laurence A. Marschall, Natural History

“Thought-provoking . . . Moore marshals his solidly researched historical information into a neat pattern . . . a gripping tale of derring-do.” ―Patricia Fara, Literary Review
