Tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis… Weather can be deadly – especially when it strikes without warning. Millions of Americans could soon find themselves at the mercy of violent weather if the public data behind lifesaving storm alerts gets privatized for personal gain. In his first Audible Original feature, New York Times best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis delivers hard-hitting research on not-so-random weather data – and how Washington plans to release it.

Nothing but left-wing anti-Trump. Depicts a very skewed description of the Department of Commerce, it's function, and slanderous accusations about the motivations behind Trumps appointments to the department. This isn't about weather prediction, this is simply a left-wing attack on Trump.

It's one of the more realistic post-apocoliptic stories, but the best narration I've found yet!

Morgan and his extended family could see the light at the end of the tunnel, dim though it may be. There was the promise of power once again. The plant was being repaired, and it looked as though it may actually run. While it meant lots of hard, sweaty work, the reward was worth the investment. The farm was growing strong, and community involvement was good. People were finally coming to terms with the fact that they needed to work together. So far Mother Nature had been on their side. But that, too, was about to change.

Just filler to sell another book?

Seems like the author had nothing to say and just wanted to sell another book without actually writing one. I love the series, but felt cheated by this book.
