This book is about as jumbled as the sea in a hurricane. It kept jumping back and forward in time trying to simultaneously tell the story of Hurricane science and discover and the story of the doomed flight. At times I just skipped whole sections until it went back to the story of the storm chasers. Very interesting subject but poorly delivered in my opinion.
