The 5th edition of this text was the one I had to use for my met classes in Plymouth, NH, back in 1993-97. I loved it, and I still leaf through it when I get pulled away from what it's all about! All editions of this book, though, are a great way to introduce young people planning on college in a few years, to the amazing world of weather. It's written in a casual way that isn't intimidating, and it *doesn't* assume you are a meteorology major who's already taken Calculus and University Physics. On the other hand, it also is interesting enough to keep meteorology majors interested in it, too, and I think it would appeal to a wide range of ages. Advanced 8th graders, as well as all high-schoolers and anyone who's graduated from high school should be able to read and understand this book without a problem. Definitely recommended if you want to learn more about the weather than what you see on the evening news.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
