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.
