Only half good

Pros:
1. Covers physical geography nicely
2. Diagrams and Maps in plenty

Cons:
1. A Big waste for Indian Geography. Indian physiography chapter covers only himalayan mountains. There is not even a single word about plains,peninsular plateau,coastal plains,islands & deserts.

Review Material

This is a good review material for prelims as well as starters for mains. It is a one time read and may be shared rather than bought by all. Decent for those who do not take notes. Better to read NCERT 6-12 standard books for better grasp of concepts.

Indian and World Geography by Hussain

Book good for beginners. Not ideally suited for civil service aspirants. More fact oriented than concept.In civils you need more concepts than pure facts. Learning facts is like rote learning.Could have made better.
