I got this off the outlet on Amazon for less than it would cost to drive to a store to buy it ;) I love the pictures and I have always had a deep facination with snow. Fairly informative. I want to find another really cheap copy and tear out the pictures and frame them :) ( )

Amazing and beautiful photographs of individual snowflakes.

Magical photographs of snowflakes taken by the head of CalTech's physics department are a revelation. Lots of detail about snowflake formation and the techniques used to take the photos. Stunning, amazing, awesome - physics nerd crossover appeal for all ages. ( )

Unsurpassed eye candy ( )

Great overview of the the science of snowflakes. Catalogs snowflakes by shape and type, and talks about conditions under which the different types are formed.
What distinguishes this book, however, are the wonderful photographs of snowflakes. Like nothing you have ever seen. ( )
