Stormy Weather

A Day in the Life of a Meteorologist
Witty and Witty
1981

If you are thinking of switching careers, maybe you should become a meteorologist. This book gives you the ins and outs of your average TV meteorologist – in 1981. It’s not a the worst book, but there isn’t a lot of discussion on meteorology other than in a TV context. However, I just think that it’s a rather limited view of a career. I keep thinking it is more about broadcasting than actual science. Not all meteorologists are on television and not all TV weather reporters are meteorologists. Poor Joe’s credentials and training aren’t even mentioned. I really think that most career books, especially aimed at young people, should have training and education requirements within the text.
