Book 9/52 of my 2014 challenge to only read books by women

The book: The Weather Book: Why it Happens and Where it Comes From

The author: Diana Craig, on whom I can't really find any information with which to populate this section.

The subject: Weather! Weather! Irritating chummy asides! Some more weather!

Why I chose it: Because weather, because British.

I wanted a fairly simple explanantion of weather systems but I don't recommend this. It's a series of fairly disconnected "facts". From the bibliography I get the sense that the author has simply read and regurgitated a few other primers on the subject and doesn't really understand all that much themselves.

This is a quick easy read. A pleasant book to while away some time. It would be an excellent waiting room ot toilet book as it comprises short chapters to dip into in any order. There is lots of interestinfg information and migth be valuable a for people setting quizzes.

Looks promising but disappoints; the same old reheated guff you read in many sub-standard articles on the subject, but with little teaching insight and real feel for what is being explained. For anyone who doesn't already know a lot you'll struggle to get any genuine understanding; those who already have some knowledge will learn nothing new. Avoid.
Jonathan Hutchins
irritating, little gobbets of science but with coy punning section headings which overall gave a condescending feel
