Elementary details of most topics that comprise of physical and human geography have been covered in an easy to understand language, with many photographs, illustrations and maps offering detailed explanation, wherever required. Much of geographical knowledge that one needs to possess is there in this book.
And for it, the book is highly relied upon by students appearing for competitive admission examinations or those aspiring to make the grades at competitive examinations held for many government openings by the Union Public Service Commission UPSC.
The book is divided into two main sections.

In my opinion, this should be the physical geography bible for UPSC aspirants. Jul 12, Parag Vade rated it liked it. Geography as a subject is closely related to environment. It can not be viewed as an isolated discipline independently from the surrounding. Still author has maintained apathetic views towards environment and climate change across the chapters.
It is understandable that book was first published in , still uses obsolete terms like USSR and Yugoslavia and the fact that climate change and sixth mass extinction was not at the forefront of global concerns then but ignoring these vital issues is not expected from someone who knows the earth inside out.
I believe that environmental considerations should be made inseparable part of every academic work if we want future generations to understand the magnitude of threat that human existence faces today.
Lastly, book has brilliantly explored all physical and climatological aspects of world geography in a succinct manner. It can be referred by every student of geography and also by anyone who wants to know the earth and the climate in general.
An conceptually and factually rich book that is hard to move on with on account of complexity but blesses us with enriching data.
Helps us dive into the basic concepts of Geography with the help of maps and diagrams. This is a must read for Geography readers while a learning suggested for others who have quest for it.
