As a modern book, it is woefully incomplete. Though thorough in it's accounts of the Great Storm of 1703, it completely lacks any modern scientific speculation or study on how a storm of this magnitude could come so far north. Nor did it try to trace the storms likely provenance as a tropical hurricane. It does not answer any more questions than did Daniel Dafoe's account. We could really use another modern perspective on the subject.
I have read many books about storms. it is one of my favorite topics. This book was extremely hard to follow. Most of the time I couldn't figure out what exactly this book was about. I couldn't finish it.... and I can only say that about 2 books. I think you would be better to spend your money else where.
