Notes

Description
Reed Timmer, a star of the Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers, is one of the world's most successful and most extreme storm chasers. His is a job that requires science and bravado, knowledge and instinct just to survive, never mind excel. Here, he takes readers inside the awe-inspiring world of big weather. Featuring stories of the over 300 tornadoes, hurricanes, or blizzards that Timmer has watched ringside over the last decade, from Hurricane Katrina to little-studied storm systems in places like Canada and Argentina. As a Ph.D. candidate in meteorology, Timmer is after more than just an adrenaline rush--his stories feature insights into the science of storms, and how the data he is collecting could possibly save lives. He also takes readers inside the storm-chasing community, examining his controversial obsession and the ethical debates it sparks.--From publisher description.
