    Summary Of The Book

The book is divided into two parts, Physical Geography, and Weather, Climate and Vegetation. Physical Geography covers the various landforms and coastal regions. The second part covers climate and weather related concepts. Physical Geography begins by examining The Earth and its place in the Universe. It then goes on to explore the Earth’s Crust. Then the book looks at the effects that various natural forces have on the Earth’s surface. The book covers natural phenomena like Volcanoes and Earthquakes. It discusses the Weathering Process, Mass Movement, and Groundwater. It proceeds on to cover different landforms and the forces that shaped them. It looks at Desert Landforms, Landforms Made By Running Water, Limestone and Chalk Landforms, and Landforms of Glaciation. It also examines Coastal Landforms, The Oceans, Lakes, Islands and Coral Reefs.

    The Weather, Climate and Vegetation section covers the concepts of Climate and Weather. It then focuses on different weather conditions and climate zones. It discusses the Hot, Wet Equatorial Climate. It also covers the Tropical Monsoon and Tropical Marine Climates. It looks at desert regions like the Hot Desert and Mid-Latitude Desert Climates. It also focuses on The Savanna or Sudan Climate, The Temperate Continental (Steppe) Climate, and The Mediterranean or Warm Temperate Western Margin Climate. Certificate Physical And Human Geography then covers cool climate zones. It discusses the Siberian or Cool Temperate Continental Climate, The Chinese type of climate or Warm Temperate Eastern Margin Climate.

    Made for UPSC aspirants

    UPSC aspirants simply go for it without it. The basic static concepts are explained very good here. Love the diagrammatic explanations. This of course won't be enough but would give you a good base. Supplement this book with some high course material

    Mind-blowing purchase

    Concepts of Physical and Economic Geography are presented in a very precise and interesting manner which kept me engaging till the end. It's a must book for all the geographers to understand the concepts better and easily.
    Diagrams are given along with the texts and almost all the concepts are given in a summarized yet inclusive form. Glad to have it!

    A good buy!

    Even though some facts are not up to date and need revision as per the recent progress, but the book is quite an interesting read.
    Concepts are clearly explained without beating around the bush, the concise information is good for exam preparations!

    Does the job

    Even through Book lenght is very small (<190pages) Many classes and Ex students recommends this book for CSE and state civil services exam for physical geographic. One must have to admit that Oxford India's printing quality is not up to mark and Book literally look like cheap quality red-black-white Xerox copy. Even discounted price does not justify its cost.

    Google would be best than this book , Very much out Dated

    As one user said in december 2011 , the pluto has been referred as ninth planet . but i m writing this in december 2012 still it is not updated that means there is no updated versions available .

    ( IAU in 2006( 6 yrs back and still the book is out of date ) passed resolutions which defined planets , dwarf planets and other celestial bodies distinctly . with respect to that resolutions , pluto has been assigned or represented as DWARF PLANET )

    i guess school books would provide much update...
