Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"Austin Woods undertook ... ambitious enterprise by guiding the reader through four decades of research and development structured into 20 chapters, which are surrounded by three forewords and three appendices. ... The great strengths of Woods' story lie in his unassuming tone, his short and at times dry personal style ... . Furthermore the author has a gift to explain the complex facets inherent in modern weather forecasting in a fashion that puts the interested ... reader on a valuable track towards (a better) understanding." (H. Volkert, Meteorologische Zeitschrift, Vol. 15 (6), 2006)
