Roker's book is a comprehensive look at the nat'l US situation, Cuban relations (poor), many personal accounts, excellent weather analysis (lacking in US weather bureau management) and graphic descriptions of the event & aftermath/recovery. The Publishers Weekly negative review of June 2015 is grossly inaccurate, biased & misleading.
