Critique: '? we meteorologists particularly must applaud the finished product as a significant contribution to popularising a central part of our science.' Physics World

'? optimistic, attractive and well-illustrated' New Scientist

'Watching the World's Weather is certainly informative, and honest about the limitations of satellite data as well as the undoubted benefits. The occasionally rather dry prose is leavened by the inclusion of some spectacular satellite pictures of storms and hurricanes. The satellite image on the television screen will never seem quite the same again.' Nature
