Don't Sell Your Coat is an interesting and clearly written book that presents climate history in a manner that is accessible to the non-climatologist. Each chapter of the book focuses on a different facet of climate science, including sunspots, trade-winds, ice caps, computer modeling, data collection, volcanic activity, media hysteria and political stakeholders. Harold Ambler uses logic, simple non-technical language and many examples to make his points. However, I do wish the author had noted his references within the text or linked the reference with the specific paragraph, rather than just list the references (per chapter) at the end of the book.
NOTE: I read the e-book format of this book and found the illustrations, graphs, and diagrams came out too small to read properly, with the accompanying subtext in an erratic formatting style. If you choose to read this book, I suggest getting hold of a paper copy.
