Recommended for: anyone interested enough in science to
Read in August, 2007

mooney is a good reporter but he's not a particularly good writer. he's also hindered by the fact that he wanted to write a book about how global warming is making hurricanes more frequent and/or intense and the sceince just doesn't say that yet. the result is that he drifts from science history to contemporary history/political reporting to popular science, but never seems to know just what kind of book he's writing.
that said, some of the science is interesting and he's pretty good at covering the recent history, especially the politicization of hurricane and climate science (though he wrote an entire book on this subject already)
