This book, although required for my class, is interesting and very informative on its own. The information is very current and thought-provoking.

Good textbook. Interesting subject matter that includes a bit of history for each region and city that I found useful in contexting current issues. Well organized but I would have preferred a larger glossary for key terms in each chapter. So much ground is covered that it gets a little confusing.

So I would recommend the e-book version, just for that reason. But also an Ebook would be easier to use. This is a heavy book to hold in one hand or prop up. So not so much fun when you are working on a laptop. You are still pretty much stuck at the table or desk.

I used this text for a basic GEO course. Very difficult to read. Dense material with a lot of text. I would not recommend this textbook. Very little pictures and they were in black and white which made it harder to look at and comprehend.

Required for a class. Reading on a nexus 7 via kindle app. There is nothing wrong with the content of the book, but the formatting has been destroyed by conversion to kindle. Graphs and figures are rendered nearly unintelligible and are sometimes only partially displayed. No page numbers or chapter bookmarks makes navigating the text nearly impossible. Numerous typos, not sure if that's a result of conversion, but it seems likely since it is usually a dropped word in the middle of a sentence. A potentially good book ruined by shoddy conversion, extremely frustrating and not worth the ~$60. Get a physical copy.
