"Mergen may know more about the cultural history of weather than anyone around and his latest book overflows with fascinating discussions. Whether or not we can do anything about it, Americans delight in talking about the weather, and Mergen is an expert listener." -- Gary Alan Fine

"The definitive weather book for decades to come. From weather humor to the politics of weather disaster with Katrina, from weather lore to weather prediction, from weather watchers to weather consumers, this book offers a truly comprehensive and invaluable history of weather's enormous social and cultural impact." -- Marita Sturken
