Book Review: Space Weather, Environment and Societies

Abstract : Space Weather, Environment and Societies, by J. Lilensten and J. Bornarel, attempts to bring space weather into the limelight as a new science and as a phenomenon with increasingly serious impacts on civilization. The main part of the book consists of two chapters that describe the physics of the Sun and of the Earth, followed by a third and concluding chapter that contains a summary of space weather effects on technical systems. As admirable as the goal of this book is, it never quite strikes a consistent chord in terms of content, organization, accuracy, or readability. Originally in French, and translated into English presumably by the authors and several cited English translation readers, the book nonetheless contains many English usage errors, which further mar its message.
