It's a good overview. The story wasn't overly compelling (as most know that hurricanes are damaging), but there's an informative display of various aspects of hurricanes. I'd recommend it to those interested in meteorology or as a "picture book" for older audiences, as the vocabulary and content is meant for more mature individuals.

A general overview of what hurricanes are and how they're formed, the damage they can cause, the names of notable ones (particularly in the U.S.), the process of naming hurricanes, and the tools and methods used by scientists to study them and prevent the harm they do.
