I like to pick up a textbook now and then to learn something new. What I learned from this book is that geography is its own dicipline, but encompasses many different disciplines at the same time. More profoundly, I came to realize how academic philosphies are affected by political philosphies, and that this inter-relatedness is at the center of all scientific pursuits.
An excellent primer to the field, from foundations to current spatial theory.
