Product Description

From the Author

Geography? Fun? Can't be. It is!
From the notion that Columbus thought the world is shaped like a woman's breast to a guide to all those countries whose names keep changing, this book is my attempt to make geography more than learning state capitals. Because geography is really about human curiosity and I try to make it fun, human and memorable. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mr. Davis has done a top-notch job of disseminating some very useful and needful information. Don't let the title fool you - more than just "geography" is covered here. You'll learn history, ecology, astronomy, and more. The only caveat, and it's not a huge one, is that he occasionally gets a bit preachy, especially about the environment and his liberal attitude comes through loud and clear. Overall, a good read and well worth the price.

I actually listened to this book on tape. The initial voice on the tape (for the first 20 minutes) made me dread having to listen to the WHOLE tape, but fortunately a pleasant well-spoken voice stepped in and completed the book! This was a fun geography review, with interesting stories to go along with the places being described. There was also a little weather, astronomy, and human history thrown in to further describe the location.
This was a concise highlighted look at Geography, covering several dozen places with just the right amount of information on each. I very much enjoyed listening to this tape.

Kenneth Davis' volume, "Don't Know Much About Geography," is a light-hearted, sometimes tongue-in-cheek look at world geography and how that geography has played a part in world history and the shaping of cultures. Though this is not an in-depth treatise on geography, Davis makes the subject relevant to his readers. A must read for any student just beginning geography as well as adults who want to refresh their memories.

I thought this particular title was poorly researched and written. The main sources he cites are almanacs and dictionaries. Large portions of the information is controversial, and the author does not even attempt to support it or cite his sources. The author also seems to also portray a bias against religious groups.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If school textbooks were like this, we would be more geography literate. The author includes some history to make it all the more interesting. Thumbs up!
