Review:

This book is an indispensible tool for preparing core concepts of psysical geography for Civil Services Preliminary Examination. Gives a lucid and crystal clear explanation of concepts.Presentation is excellant --Anirudh Shandilya on Sep 20, 2011

fantastic book for developing physical geography gyan. good for civil services. people complaining that it is very old version (1974 edition) so it is and thats why it is so cheap. it doesn't matter that its Bombay or Mumbai or USSR or Russia as this book deals with physical geo. not the political one. --Abdul Ahad Siddique on Nov 19, 2013

It is a must buy book for getting hold of geography concepts. It is rich in diagrams, illustrations and case studies. It has always been favourite with geography toppers and also'for'general studies. In prelims geography carries considerable weight especially environmental geography which this books covers quite nicely. --vinay on Jun 11, 2012
