Combining lively portraits of the leading figures, vivid science journalism, and the latest reportage from the weather front (the last section covers the 2006 hurricane season), Mooney, a native of New Orleans, has written what will surely be one of the most talked-about books of the year.
"A well-researched, nuanced book." (The New York Times)
"The author's thorough research is evident throughout, and he does a fine job of sifting through complexities and presenting the science in an engaging and readable package....In Storm World, Mooney catches real science in the act and, in so doing, weaves a story as intriguing as it is important." (The Los Angeles Times)

A compelling history of the science of hurricanes
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is a fascinating history of hurricane science, running in parallel with our increasing understanding of global warming. Mooney presents a wel-researched history of hurricane science, along with personal interviews and insight into the people who developed it. It's fascinating to learn how recently we came to understand the physics of hurricanes and what affects them.
