Meteorological books written for those who fly can sometimes be rather torpid tomes of theory, pulled together to help the would-be aviator obtain his pilot's license. This book breaks new ground in the presentation of what is, and should be presented as, a fascinating and vitally important part of a pilot's skill and flight safety. Gone are the dreary old monotone drawings of isobars and fronts, endless graphs and reams of figures and in bounce full colour photos of what you actually see - clouds and cloudscapes that tell you instantly what's happening to the air around you. Gone also is the old-style learning by note and in come colourful illustrations that actually explain what is happening in the atmosphere so that it all becomes part of nature at work. For those who fly aircraft or micros, gliders or kites - this book makes the weather make sense.
