    Good Non-Fiction Read

    Non-fiction. I read this for the non-fiction book club at my local library (March 2014). I thought this was a very cool and interesting book, where you do indeed learn about the first tornado chasers as the cover implies. There is also tons of interesting information about how we came up with weather reports and devices for observing weather patterns, how tornadoes behave, and putting an end to a lot of nonsense: like that cities do not get hit by tornadoes, that there is a certain side of the house that is safer, or that opening windows helps equalize pressure (all not true). I would recommend this if you want to learn a little about weather history or if you are fascinated by tornadoes.
