I really enjoyed this book, but not one for the casually interested, because although lucidly written the author does not shy away from using technical language. As someone with a Geography O level and interested in landscape I was glad it wasn't a simple laymans level introduction.
However, a very good extensive glossary is included, and technical words are highlighted by bold type when first introduced. Diagrams excellent. Clear print, colour diagrams and photos throughout. Could benefit from a bigger format for photos, but I guess that would make the series' books more expensive.

A great intro to so many geographical topics -- excellent for our school library and our geographers

For such a compact book, Adrain harvey packs in a huge amount of information about all the general landforms one might see e.g. rivers and valleys, hills and mountains, caves and all sorts of other interesting features. The full-colourillustrations are excellent and the book as a whole provides a really good and easily accessible introduction to the subject. Thoroughly recommended for GCSE or A level Geography or for anyone interested in the features of the landscape.

I find the book is very valuable. It is easy to read and offers not only up-to-date text, but also state of the art scientific insights. The "Further Reading" and the "Links" offered to interesting mail addresses are gorgeous. That, by the way, is a common pattern of all the books in this remarkable series. Highly recommended ifor all those interested in the title front page !

This was a wondrous gift for a young cousin...

Down-side, he was so impressed by this volume in the 'Introducing' series, he wants most of the others, too...

I was disappointed in this book. The author claims it isn't a textbook but he dives straight into specialist jargon which means that the non-expert reader has to continually look up the glossary. There simply aren't enough examples, the photos are small and not great quality and the layout leaves a lot to be desired. Overall, understandable enough once you get through the jargon but poorly produced book. Not recommended.

Seems to be a very useful introduction to why the landscape looks like it does.

If you like landscapes and want to know what formed them look no further. Very user friendly.
