From the Inside Flap
Full-color photographs. Find out the causes of thunder, lightning, hurricanes, and tornadoes; how clouds are formed and what each kind portends; and why weather forecasters are seldom 100 percent right. "The imaginative use of photographs helps to clarify many of the concepts."School Library Journal.

That said, these books have a tendency to be sketchy on actual details. While there is a two-page spread on clouds, for example, it's not overly informative. The information provided seems accurate and interesting, but if you're looking for a guide to different types of clouds, this is not it. I looked up things like mammatus clouds in the index, for example, and they're not listed. There are a lot of things you'd think would be included that are not.
But still, as an overview and as a quick outline, these books are great. And they do serve a good purpose in that they expose you to a lot of information quickly, which makes it easier to find books that delve more deeply into the things that interest you. I bought this book used for four cents, lol, and even tough it had water damage and was missing the cd, I think I got a bargain.
