Clearly this was not the book for me. I found the first 2 cd's so painful I threw it away. I was looking for a more scientific and less personal story - which was not the book the author wrote. I would recomend it if you are interested in lyical descriptions of wind - but you don't really want to know about the science.

This felt like part travel log, part science book. I learned some stuff, but it seemed a bit long for this. If you're really interested in the topic, I'd say go for it. But, it's not like some books that I tell friends about.
Would you try another book written by Jan DeBlieu or narrated by Mary Woods?
Overall, not a book for me to recommend. I understand that scientific works can be made more easily understood by such books. A Brief History of Time for example. Loved it. However, the narrator could not get me interested in this somewhat disjointed approach to explaining some of the phenomena of wind currents around the world.
What will your next listen be?
Back to something more interestingly portrayed by a less soporific narration.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
This was a voice which I felt did nothing to increase my interest,
the author is in love with the wind and melds science, history and philosophy with descriptive prose to show you why
only criticism is the prosecution can meander and stray at times but not enough to lose a star
If like me you are focused on Strategy, change and leadership then learning about the chaotic constant that is Wind, how it affects the world, life and the whole of humanity is essential reading.
