Comments on the first edition:
‘Aside from the scope of the book, which is to be commended, the strengths are numerous. The clarity of the writing is second to none and never dry. The textbook benefits from excellent colour illustrations, excellent graphs and conceptual diagrams...Hats off to Dr Holden and colleagues for an excellent introductory geography text’
Dr Richard J. J. Pope, University of Derby
'This is a remarkable achievement... any student who fails to be enthused by what this book has to say, and how it says it, must be very difficult indeed to please. This book takes UK degree-level geography textbooks to a new level'
Chris Park, Lancaster University
‘I love this book! The layout of the pages and the colours really aid the learning, clear diagrams and explanations to theories and topics help during revision and reading towards essays. If I’m stuck on any part of a topic I look in the Holden book first for an explanation.’
Keele University Student
