Reviews

'With all that is presented here - from the basics of air currents to the most extreme, record-breaking weather and much more - you can rest assured I mean that, 'everything'. The picture editors have done a sterling job, too, for the pages have a complete global outlook and the imagery is brilliant.'

? From typhoons and waterspouts to moonbows and sun halos, Anna Claybourne shares some of the incredible weather phenomena and the science behind it from her book The wildest weather - in pictures 'Infographics, diagram and photographs combine to make an enticing book; a book which will leave the reader with a far better understanding of the weather around us, how it originates and the effects it has on our lives. A fascinating read with good explanations and informative for us all, not just children
