This captivating little book is billed as an official publication of the Cloud Appreciation Society. The author is the founder of that society and a self-described cloud lover. It is a guide to cloud types for the layperson with plenty of information about types of clouds, altitudes, the weather they bring, and how they form. But it is also peppered with cloud trivia, pictures, and the author's whimsical reflections. Read from cover to cover or just dip into this book wherever you fancy. Whatever else you take away from the reading, you will remember to look up more often and appreciate the sky.
