Just in Time for Hurricane Season: a Book That Could Save Your Life Now On iBooks

Arlington, Texas (PRWEB) August 26, 2014

Hes best known for his beautiful and dramatic cinematography of some of the planets most spectacular weather, including Hurricane Katrina making landfall, and the worlds first ever tornado captured on 3D video. Martin Lisius is the man Hollywood calls when they need high-end motion picture footage of dangerous storms. Hes also a person committed to severe weather safety, and produced StormWatch, a video utilized nationwide by the National Weather Service to train storm spotters.

Last month, Lisius released his new book The Ultimate Severe Weather Safety Guide on paperback, Kindle and Nook. Now, it is available through the iBooks app on iPad and Mac. This new version of the guide is the very best because it offers video for the reader, Lisius said. The ability to see tornadoes, hurricanes and other extreme weather in motion, and hear the sounds, really adds a new dynamic to the book.

For Lisius, saving lives is what its all about. I want people to understand, and even appreciate severe weather, and know how to deal with it when it threatens, he said. My book was intended to arm the reader with information and insight that will help to protect them and their families from very survivable risks.

In the book, Lisius addresses lightning, hurricanes, tornadoes, flash floods and other hazards, and divides each chapter into prepare, monitor and act. Its a methodology he feels can save lives.

The Ultimate Severe Weather Safety Guide by Martin Lisius is currently available in paperback (76 pages) and on Kindle (83 pages) at Amazon, and on Nook (64 pages) at Barnes & Noble. The iBooks version (61 pages with video), is available at the iTunes Store.
