Are you addicted to the Weather Channel's coverage of stormy weather? Did you spend 2005 tracking the incredible hurricane season (who could imagine a year in which they ran out of names and almost ran out of Greek letters as well?)? Have you ever dreamed of being a storm chaser?

With The Complete Idiot's Guide to Extreme Weather , you can experience the incredible ferocity of big, bad weather without getting soaked, wind-tossed, thunderstruck, or frozen and be a storm tracker yourself through the CD-ROM that accompanies the book.

Why weather matters and why the Greenhouse Effect and holes in the ozone are changing weather patterns worldwide. El Niqo, La Niqa, and the jet stream and how they effect air pressure and storm cloud formations. Well, blow me down-hurricane categories, bands, and inside the eye of the storm. Spin cycle- tornadoes and why they love the American Midwest and-surprise-Europe. Thunderstruck-and careful-lightning can strike twice.
