This book does well presenting information, however the wording throughout the book, especially regarding US foreign policy, was very biased. While the information is not incorrect, it certainly clearly displays the writers' political opinions on geopolitics and the like. I am a student taking a geography class, not a government class, and while I understand that 'world' geography and politics tend to go hand in hand, I really don't appreciate reading through passages clearly biased, whether I agree with that bias or not.

I used this book for my geography college class and found it very informative without becoming dry. Each continent has multiple chapters discussing culture, landscape, people groups and population, family culture, religion, economic issues, and social issues. While I didn't care for the fact that evolution is taken as a fact and discussed often, though briefly, as a part of the geographical portion of the book, the other information along with the true life vignettes and side articles were very helpful. I really learned a lot from this book and will be keeping it for reference.
