Scott, what an absolutely first rate book you and Doug have put out. At last count, I have over 80 books on Meteorology/Weather and can state unequivocally that your book is the new standard by which all other books can be measured. The combined experience of both you and Doug is pure gold and visually the book is striking. Your photos add an extra dimension coming from someone who has been there and done that and gives the reader the feeling that these gentlemen know what they are talking about and want to share it with the reader regardless of their background.

"I purchased and read the book immediately after it became available, the best money I've ever spent!"
I ordered two of your books so I would always have access to a volume at home and at our cabin - in order that I can read and read with hopes of improving my understanding of environmental science and events.
Even though I am no longer flying above FL 180, I have felt particularly in need of better understanding high altitude wx phenomena with hopes that such improved understanding might provide better understanding of wx below FL 180. I am quite naive about weather science and so appreciate your fine work as part of my reference library. One does not have to get very far into your book to appreciate the quality of your educational material. The book is superb. John W. Overton, Jr, M.D
Your book is outstanding. Just since the New Year have I had the opportunity to dive into the book. Although I have been a GA pilot since the mid-1970s, I have felt continually frustrated that in spite of my efforts I have never had the depth of knowledge and understanding of meteorology that I have desired. I think now I have found a lasting and meaningful answer to my years of searching, frustration and yearning to have better understanding of weather and weather-related phenomena. Thank you for your hard work and most valuable contribution to my education and the education of other pilots.
Yesterday I gave Dori the box (book). He promptly tore it open, then disappeared with the book into his study. Over the next half hour as he muttered to himself, I heard the following: "Fantastic book!" . . . "Photographs are amazing!" . . . "This is great!" He emerged long enough to grab a highlighter and pen and flash me a grin, then retreated for another hour. Today a repeat. So I'd say you have written a winner. We wish you continued success in the year ahead!
Excellent book, covering a wide range of topics in an accurate but intuitive fashion, exactly what pilots like. Interpreting and predicting the weather is not only a key ingredient to a safe flight, but also an art. Thank you

One flight instructor, Brian Turrisi, bought our book and can't put it down. He has taken on the task of going over it with a fine tooth comb. So far, he has picked up about 8 errors that included mostly typos. If you find a mistake, let us know.
