1.0 out of 5 stars For class... 23 July 2012
By Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to get this book for class and honestly, it's the hardest textbook I've ever had to read. It's very dense and my instructor even remarked that he had a really hard time getting through it. Not sure why it was used, but be prepared to take a lot of notes, dissect paragraphs, and be thrown off by the poorly displayed graphs, maps, and diagrams that were often skewed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lengthy but VERY good 27 May 2010
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is pretty good except it is extremly lengthy in small texts. At first glance, it looks terrible but as I read through the book all the way to the end, this boook covers most of geographical concepts that other book has and explained in details with examples from current as well as past events. Also have some pictures throughout the book to guide the readers with text in understanding it. Also have glossary and bolded texts to help as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent content. 21 Dec. 2012
By C89898 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An excellent text book. For the level it is recommended for (intro college/AP), some of the information is almost too extensive, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. There are no review questions at the end of chapters, which is a key tool for studying, summarizing/outlining, and review.

This is a good textbook, it has a lot of information to read but it is not difficult to understand. The definitions are in bold and the index is extremely helpful.
