I got this book as it was required for my World Ecomonics class. Luckily it is a easy and fun read, not just informative. The authors of the book have organized it well, and I've enjoyed the historical aspects as well the current information.

Solid book on the world of Geography and Economics that pertain to it. It is a bit heavy with the complicated lingo and concepts at times, but I did take decent notes while reading which helped immensely. My professor was good to guide me through the book in class and as a result I am getting good grades. If this isn't your major or general expertise, it will get dull since it talks about the general economics and surrounding areas in geography.

I actually want to give this book 2.5 stars but can't. Anyhow it's OK but not great. A lot of the stuff in here is things that a person would know if they paid even a little attention to world issues. I guess it's fair to try to be comprehensive and some people have just got to start *somewhere* but I shudder to think who is graduating from college anymore. My most serious complaint is that, theoretically, this book is a mess, and I do mean a *mess*. At some times, neoclassical economic approaches are presented without criticism, including the ubiquitous supply / demand curve graphs, and at other times Marxist and even more radical constructivist views in the Marxist vein are emphatically asserted to be true, along with a mélange of other heterodox viewpoints. Now I am heterodox myself but this crap just doesn't make sense. For instance, at one point, the authors are dismissing the major arguments for protectionism in trade, but then criticizing the policies of the Bretton Woods institutions only a few pages later. Also, the authors should be made well aware that Bethlehem Steel is now defunct and the main site in Bethlehem proper has been converted to a casino. Get up to speed, guys.

I bought this book for my economic geography class at Bloomsburg university. It supplements the class pretty well seeing as the teacher taught using corresponding slides with the text. The accompanying online subscription is helpful too; including things like key-word definitions and practice tests. I wouldn't say the book was a must-by for the class but it wasn't useless either.

This book had useless information, but was required for a class I was taking. Glad I only rented it, and didn't pay for it new.
