Good weather forecasting book for sailors?

Any recommendation of a good weather forecasting book for coastal sailors?
Something simple, not too complicated?
Thanks

You might want to look at these two books...

The first book is about reading/interpreting weather charts and maps, etc. The other is more about predicting weather via what you can see, and instruments like barometers.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

7tiger7, I have been having the most success with meteorology books I got at a local University bookstore. I found the University books were easier to digest than some because they walked you through the principles one by one and it actually made sense. I think it helps to know the 'why', at least it does for me. I don't have any titles handy because I am away from home at the moment.

If you are anywhere near Annapolis then SSCA is having a basic and advance weather class in October. I'd go but it's too expensive for me.
