Customer Reviews

Decent  October 21, 2011

This book is decent, it needs to be organized a little bit better. The maps are great and it does contain much information on other countries, not just their geography, but their economies, etc. Overall, 3 stars in my opinion.

The World Today: Concepts and Regions in Geography, 5th Edition: 3 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Anyone interested in learning about geographic concepts will appreciate this concise text, that highlights the most important concepts. The fifth edition presents authoritative content, currency, and outstanding cartography. It continues to build on its strength for understanding maps with the help of additional question types. New coauthor Jan Nijman also helps provide a current view of the field. With its up-to-date information and accessible introduction, this text is engaging for any student.
