    Well it does look like this author at least spent some time chasing & learning from chasers , so hopefully that helps in his writing.

    Have you read "Tornado Hunter"? It was co-written by Tim. It's something more like two books in one - interlaced chapters about specific chases (I think events of 2008 are highlighted) with chapters about the history of tornadoes and research. Some interesting stuff in there.

    This new one looks very cool, too. I'll make sure to grab a copy.

    I read this book a couple years ago and it was great. I highly recommend reading it if you have the time. As Jeff said, it covers chasing from various view points: historical, actual chasing, and storm victims if I remember correctly.

    2008-2010, yes. But I am not in the book, nor did I contribute anything to it.
