He is also a member of the International Astronomical Union, is visiting Research Fellow at the University of Sussex and is a past President of the British Astronomical Association. Storm was recently awarded the Gordon Manley Weather Prize for long-standing contributions to the journal Weather. He has given lectures and talks on all aspects of astronomy and meteorology, at various levels, to a wide range of groups and societies, including overseas.

Very basic 101 book and guide to learning about weather, but not enough information in this book! March 3 2014
By Daisy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Found this book helpful, however, instead this had just very basic info on the weather and LESS than I found in the National Weather Service eBooks (in PDF) online for free!
The main thing that I really liked are the color pictures in this book, which are of HD quality, but could be larger.
This is NOT the best weather book that I have found and for 3.00 in price, it is just a SO SO purchase.

If you are buying this for say a young person or student, this book may work for you. However, if you want more detailed information on weather, may I suggest that you look elsewhere.
