DESCRIPTION

Although this book has been written for the sailor, it should have much wider appeal. In 1995 the author became a TV weatherman and is a Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society. He has used his considerable experience to produce a very readable book that explains the way in which the weather develops and changes, and provides the information to read weather patterns and cloud conditions. His enthusiasm for his subject comes through strongly and his presentation skills have contributed to making it so easy to follow. The work is very well illustrated, using colour throughout as appropriate. Every sailor needs to develop a sound understanding of how the weather systems work and how to read the signs, even for inland waters, but this is a work that can be equally recommended to any reader whether they have an interest in sailing or just want to understand what conditions will be like for any other outdoor activity.
