Well-written, interesting, particularly if you like tornadoes or severe weather

First hand accounts from storm Chaser Roger Hill. Obviously passionate about weather and slightly insane, this book charts the beginning of his passion - his own near miss with a tornado that struck his home - and how it became all consuming, leaving his work and family to chase tornados. As these are first hand accounts from someone up close, they read a bit like watching the movie Twister - flying cars and livestock included.

Not exactly what I was hoping for. Roger does state his passion for storm chasing but does not come through the pages to me. Has one photo caption that is exciting with no story to back it. Overall, it is an easy read that does give some information about chasing tornadoes.

This book is very detailed, at times so much so it can be repetitive but it details the adventures of a Storm Chaser starting out in his career and well down the line. Not sure where the "other Natural Disasters" comes into it as it mainly concerns tornadoes and Hurricane Katerina. This is a very interesting read though.
