“FINALLY, someone has done something about the weather. Andrew Revkin and Lisa Mechaley have given us a startlingly fascinating book about how weather got the way it is, and how we’ve reacted to it, used it, and even helped shape it. There are a hundred captivating stories in this book that are as enlightening as they are fun. Reading them is like seeing the clouds part and the sun come out.” —Alan Alda, longtime host of Scientific American Frontiers and a founder of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University

“Informative, addictively readable, and never preachy, Weather: An Illustrated History tells the fascinating story of humanity’s ever-evolving relationship with the earth’s climate. Highly recommended.” —Nathaniel Philbrick, National Book Award winner for In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex 

“Weather: An Illustrated History is a gift of a book—at once fascinating, informative, and surprising.” —Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sixth Extinction
