'This is a book which may well revolutionise the study of meteorology for pilots. The author, who for two years in the present war has served as a ferry pilot, flying fighters and bombers in all weathers - and who before 1939 ran her own gliding club - believes that pilots can get to know the changes in the weather and are able to forecast for themselves by understanding the look of the clouds. The copious illustrations have been most carefully arranged and supervised by the author.'.
