Another very readable book from the highly experienced Dag Pike. There are 17 short, easy-to-read chapters with many interesting or even frightening photographs.

The topic is covered reasonably well for a non-academic study and is up-to-date with examples of storms and ship wrecks of this decade as well as plenty from further back. Well worth reading for the extra background on storms and for giving plenty of encouragement to keep up-to-date with the weather for one's trip "by all available means".
