Weather for Dummies 15. Mai 2007
Von Debbie T - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I didn't realize we had inherited a copy of this book from my father-in-law until I found it rather late in the semester I took Meteorology. I read it cover-to-cover while studying for the final and managed a 'B' which for me on a science topic was AWESOME. Eric Sloane's simplistic explanations and drawings helped this non-science major grasp some of the tougher concepts.

The only time I really NOTICED how old it is was when he mentioned how the earth would appear if one were to take a trip into space in a suit made of air -- we hadn't landed on the moon when this was written. No mention of ozone or the top two levels of the atmosphere either but, hey, who knew they were there in 1949?

quite superb 13. Mai 2010
Von a reader from Illinois - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
For a sailor interested in weather, there are these days a myriad of marine weather books written with ever increasing sophistication and complication. I've read, even studied, many of them; and most have value. But this is the one that I reread before every season (and this will be my fifty-seventh sailing season). There is a simplicity and clarity to Sloan's explanations which, coupled with his wonderful illustrations, make this book superb and unique. I suppose that technophiles might quibble with the fact that this book does not include a few ideas or concepts that we now know, but which were unknown in 1949 when the book was first published. But that doesn't qualify what I've said about its excellence. Even if your interest involves weather fax, GRIBS, and 500mb charts, there is literally no better book to explain the basics of how weather happens. And, if, like me, you no longer cruise, but just day sail or make the occasional overnighter, this book coupled with last night's TV forecast, a decent barometer, and Alan Watts' INSTANT WEATHER FORECASTING, is pretty much all you need. ERIC SLOAN'S WEATHER BOOK is really in a class by itself.

Easy to understand and fascinating 22. Juni 2010
Von Debbie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"Eric Sloane's Weather Book" was a very fun, easy-to-understand, and fascinating book about weather. He explained ways that a person can predict the weather by looking at the sky, how to read weather maps--what all the symbols mean--and use weather instruments. He covered information about our atmosphere, air, winds, heat, and clouds, and how it all works together to create weather.

The author has a gift for making difficult ideas very easy to understand. He also included many black and white illustrations that reinforced what was taught in the text and made it clear. The book was packed full of practical information on how to become weather-wise. This book was first written some time ago (in 1949) and was based off of articles that the author wrote for sailors and aviators. Most of the information is still completely relevant, but it does show it's age in a few places.

I'd highly-recommend this well-written and interesting book to anyone who's curious about how weather is created and how to predict it.

An Interesting Book 5. Juni 2010

Very educational as well as a great reminder of my "Mamaw" [great grandmother] who was an excellent weather prognosticator who new almost all of the weather signs.

Von MJP - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Great info for kids and adults alike. It'll help you understand your local tv meteorologists when they talk about high pressure areas, cold fronts, etc. This is timeless information that can be useful to you or just satisfy a curiosity. Easy to read and good illustrations.
