"The author, a contributing editor of Time magazine, has produced a riveting, deeply researched narrative that is driven by a prose style of descriptive elegance and power. The result is authoritative history given the gloss of high journalism, and the sense of immediacy such a combination produces is at times breathtaking....Good as it is as disaster narrative, ISACC'S STORM also shines as a character study, as an anatomy of hurricanes, and as a lively expose of bureaucratic stupidity."

Reviewer: Rebecca Abrams, (New Statesman)

"This book is gripping, informative and imaginative from start to finish. Larson combines abundant "human interest" with a good dollop of history and just enough science. He is clear and succinct on the mechanics of these meteorological demons, and his lyrical descriptions of harmless water droplets swelling into gigantic, lethal, airborne armouries stir the spirit."
