I used this book for a geography class a few semesters ago and decided to keep it. Part of the decision was based on the cover... the cute Thai children with their bubble gum. I have some fond memories of that geography class. The best memory was of the teacher though... she pointed to a world map and showed us the "mountains in Japan" which of course were not visible on a world map where Japan looks about an inch long.

Good, if sometimes disjointed set up. I thought it focused too much on the environmental impacts in the regions and not enough on the actual cultures. Photo essays were pointless and annoyingly referenced in the text. Very comprehensive, though, although most times to the point of being too much information.

One of the best textbook reads ever. I actually enjoyed everything about this text.

Poorly edited and frequently incomprehensible. Phrasing occasionally stated the opposite of what was intended, leading to contradictions in the text.

I don't remember much from this textbook, but I know I read some of it because there is highlighting in it!
