Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Pocket Guide to Clouds and Storms?
pocket guide Sep 21, 2007
mis-ordered, i had meant to purchase the field guide to clouds, which has been renamed the weather field guide. there is some decent general information in this pocket guide, and i would recommend this book to 10-14 year olds. but if you are really interested in weather and cloud formations you want to buy the proper field guide which really isn't that much larger than this book, and contains a great deal more information and photographs.
Beautifully illustrated pocket reference for all! Jul 13, 2004
This pocket book to weather can be used in the field for years, since it's reliability level is high for a first guide. The photographs are more spectacular and much easier to see. The background behind the cloud photos is also breathtaking. The "heap cloud" family is extensively covered here, coming out at more than 15 photographs in all! This will easily encourage an amateur meteorologist to delve into studying cloud formations and phenomenons. Once again, the material is geared toward amateurs and experienced users. There is an explanation beside the cloud type listing covering: Cloud significance, season, range, and local area abundance. Please heed that you must buy this before the advanced Audubon guides.
Pictures are very good, information too. Jan 15, 2002
Well I consider that this is a very well illustrated book as well as all those from Audubon Society, pictures are impressive.
The information on the book is very useful, it is also very detalailed for a pocket guide, and I consider a good aspect the way to find clouds, is quick and you will easily learn to classify them.
Good Book Jul 31, 1999
Nice pics. Nice info. Good boo
So easy to read! Such beautiful pictures! Jul 11, 1998
This book is similar, though much more condensed, to the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Weather. It has some of the most beautiful weather pictures I've ever seen! The text is also right next to its corresponding picture, making it very easy to use. The small size makes it perfect to carry along with you everywhere!
