Doubleday & Co., Garden City: 1967. Anchor Books Edition. s Softcover. Very good reading copy. 
Attempts to create eyes in the world that see "a little more order, a little less chaos, in the seemingly random distribution of the clouds, wind, rain, and snow that together make up the local weather." Professor Edinger's description of a "meteorological field trip" along the western coast of the United States beautifully illustrates how these "exercises in seeing" can create eyes that discern in natural phenomena an amazing order within an endless variety.
