Paul Yeager’s Book: Weather Whys

Weather Whys: Facts, Myths, and Oddities by Paul Yeager (Perigee Books, an imprint of Penguin USA) is now in bookstores (national chains and independent book sellers).

Anyone who’s interested in the weather will enjoy the book. While not a science-heavy book, easy-to-understand weather explanation is mixed with how the weather affects our lives, quite possibly in ways we’ve never thought of before, such as sporting events, health and home, and historic events. The book also separates fact from fiction as it relates to common weather beliefs and ancient wives’ tales. (A chapter-by-chapter outline is below)

Weather Whys can also be purchased in bookstores nationally (chains and many independent stores):
