If you are required to purchase this book for your class, definitely get the earlier edition. It is almost exactly the same as the new edition.

I loved this book! Get all the information you need to get started in meteorology, but what works even better is having the teacher/instructor who has the passion and knowledge to guide you.

I'm very pleased to have purchased this text book for far less than full price. It's in very good (gently used) condition, and now I'm just looking forward to class in January.
