This is a beautiful and tactile coffee table book, whilst being a handier size than most coffee table books. It consists of seven sections; 1) the elements, 2) the global atmosphere, 3) the Sun, 4) weather watching and forecasting, 5) can we change the weather, 6) weather cycles and 7) extreme weather.
