The brand new second edition of Canadian Aviation Weather was released in the fall of 2017, and has vast improvements over the unique first edition which was issued in 2015.
If you belong to a flying club, flight school or college don't settle with second best. Tell your instructors and teachers there is much better material available than traditional weather books. Learning weather from antiquated publications and so called experts isn't worth it, nor is it weather wise.

Some feedback:

The integration of pilot decision making with meteorology is a particularly strong attribute. Several other books deal with meteorology, primarily from a navigation planning perspective, and find it a challenge to reach an appropriate balance between theory and operational practice. In your case, you have expertise in both what a pilot might do with the information /theory and the realities of the abilities /limitations of meteorologists and the associated distribution methods in meeting pilot requirements from both a safety and efficiency perspective.

In terms of Canadian aviation weather the number of books is rather limited. There is the AIM MET section and the MET chapter in From the Ground Up that are explicitly Canadian. The AIM is intended as a flight planning handbook and FTGU is really based upon what a PPL exam would expect. The Air Command Weather Manual is widely referenced and is Canadian but lacks content related to operational information. Weather Ways is Canada and a good light read but I'm not even sure if it is published anymore. I cannot think of anywhere, other than your book, that synthesizes the meteorological theory, aviation applications and practical operational information in one place (and through your anecdotes, makes it relevant to the reader).
