|Author||Martin A. Uman and Vladimir A. Rakov|
This is the go-to book for the physics of lightning. Rakov and Uman have put together a great collection of information that is state-of-the-art.
This is the first book of its kind. It essentially covers all the known aspects of lightning and is essential for engineers/scientists/ or researchers in this field. I understand that it is expensive to add colored pictures to books, but for some of the figures in the book it would have been greatly appreciated.
