5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for any physical geographer! 10 Mar 2013
By BP
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a first year BSc Geography student at University of Liverpool. This book offers concise and clear introductions to many areas of physical geography such as: tectonics, geomorphology, ecology etc. Further readings are recommended at the end of each chapter, and diagrams are excellent. A great buy for a physical geographer
