First Sentence
It may seem a little strange to begin talking about weather forecasting by describing conditions over the whole Earth, but in fact it makes sense. Read the first page

Review of GUIDE TO WEATHER FORECASTING April 17 2010
By Rex Ian De Silva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent introduction to weather and weather forecasting.The book explains the conditions which govern weather on a planet-wide basis. It describes the atmosphere and its structure, air movements, effects of atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity. It deals with global circulation, the effects of winds, the Coriolis effect and numerous other factors which affect the weather.The various cloud types and their effects on weather are well described. The color images of the various cloud types are both informative and pleasant to view.Atmospheric optics including rainbows, haloes, sun and moon pillars are succinctly dealt with. There is a comprehensive description of weather systems including fronts, depressions, tornadoes, cyclones and other phenomena. The account of lightning and thunderstorms includes a listing of precautions to be taken for protection from lightning.

The section on weather observation is absorbing. It includes instructions for interpreting weather maps, describes meteorological instruments and weather forecasting.

There is one caveat though: the small print, though clear, is a slight strain on aging eyes like mine.

This book is recommended to amateur meteorologists, astronomers, weather watchers, hunters, anglers and all outdoors men as well as armchair weather watchers.

Type is too small to read July 4 2013
By Linda Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This may very well be the best book ever written on weather forecasting, but the print is so small it gives me a headache to try to read it ... I am able to read only a page or so at a time before eyestrain sets in and I have to put the book away for several hours. Newspapers are set in 9 point type, and this book's text is much smaller, likely 7 point at the largest. The font is also very thin, making it even harder to see. So unless you have extremely good eyesight, I would not recommend spending the money (unless perhaps there is an ebook version that you could download to your computer and enlarge the type yourself).

The book itself is on the small size, so it could have easily been printed in a larger page format for easier reading, without adding any more pages. Otherwise, it has lovely colored photos and graphs.
It is really easy to follow July 22 2014

Not finished with it yet however I am really loving this book. It is really easy to follow, the first few chapters took me a while to understand, things like winds and circulation however I did catch on and I have been glued to it since. The print in the book is smaller than most type however it is not as small as some other reviewers have claimed and i have yet to have it "hurt my eyes". I would definitely recommend this book to someone who likes nature and weather.

This book covers a lot of information. The size also makes it easy to carry around. You can learn how to better predict and understand weather for every aspect of your life. From deciding what to wear that day, or when to pack up camp. This book will teach you what you need to know.
