    I love meteorology, but at the beginning, I didn't know much about it. This book helped me understand weather and why it happens, and know I've probably got hundreds of facts about weather! Walter A. Lyons did a fantastic job, and now there's one more person in the world who is fascinated by meteorology.

    This book was arranged question and answer style. It made a nice introduction to meteorology, but I soon grew tired of the format. Many of the questions just weren't things that I really wanted to know. I'll look for another weather book written text book style. That said, it was full of fun little bits of weather history that I knew nothing about. Raining frogs...and giant hailstones...etc.
