4.0 out of 5 stars Some good stuff, some not so good 3 Sep 2013
This is a very accessible book and well done to the authors for making it so. They have tried their best to make it appealing with lots of colourful images, interesting facts and up to date case studies. It certainly gave me a lot to add to my AS geography lessons.

However, in parts it seems a bit too simplistic, while the Philip Allan textbook may be a little less interesting it uses higher powered language, more A-level leve, whereas this book seems to try to dumb down some of the concepts and is sometimes lacking in detail.

It also contains an error in the deserts section, which you can read about here [...]

However, overall I would recommend it due to it's appeal and up to date information. It makes a great contribution to the AS geography course but, I suppose like any textbook, must be used in conjunction with other resources.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy CGP 11 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The content of this book is really bad, particularly for coasts. There's plenty for population but out of the 4 geog textbooks I own it's the worst. Contains enough information to get you a C/D at best I'd say.

I used it extensively for Rivers, Cold Environments, Population Change and Energy Issues.
The book is effective if you use it to obtain a fair understanding of each topic, and then do further research to augment this understanding. For example, I would recommend reading the relevant chapter before the lesson on it so that you understand the topic and can then process the more in-depth information that your teacher will provide.
On its own, this book is severely lacking. Chapters are short and the explanation is basic. Large areas of pages are taken up by unnecessary pictures when they could be dedicated to more relevant information. Furthermore as this book is from 2011 some case studies may be outdated.
It is not a terrible book to get, just don't solely rely on it.
