From the Publisher"Marsh and Kaufman eloquently link the science of physical geography with the impacts of human activities. As such this text is a perfect tool for encouraging students to become environmentally-informed citizens."
Dean P. Lambert, Department of Geography, San Antonio College, Texas
"At last, a textbook that successfully merges a graphic storyline with the text to describe the interconnectedness of Earth’s great physical systems. The authors do a masterful job using this approach to explain the geographic character of the planet. This textbook will be understandable to both science and non-science majors."
Dr Richard Crooker, Department of Geography, Kutztown University, Pennsylvania
"Authoritative, useful, balanced, and wise, this is more than a textbook. It is, rather, a modernized classic and comprehensive presentation of the physical geography perspective of the great natural systems operating on planet Earth … should be successful with students and teachers alike as the scientific process and physical science fundamentals are presented with relevance to everyday life."
Dean Fairbanks, Department of Geography and Planning, California State University, Chico
"Will Marsh, an excellent scientist and a talented artist, has written the best textbooks in physical geography for three decades, and [this] new offering … continues this tradition. The book’s distinctive features include explanations that start from a comprehensible scale that the student can understand, along with gorgeous illustrations."
Jeff Dozier, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara
"… an all-encompassing textbook filled with stunning pictures and dozens of single-concept diagrams that, combined with clear text, eloquently describe Earth's physical geography … a great tool to teach about naturogenic and anthropogenic factors of change, such as volcanic eruptions or human-made pollution, to science and non-science undergraduates alike … The book is overall very well presented and organised: the structure of individual chapters and their presentation are excellent...The usefulness of Physical Geography as a teaching resource is further displayed in the companion volume and online materials … Any textbook that encourages students to be the environmentally conscious citizens of tomorrow is welcome - and Physical Geography is an ideal volume."
Barbara Ferriera, GeoQ
"Text and graphics are complementary and well integrated. It is very much a 'learning and teaching' tool, and is backed by copious online resources. It should be suitable for [advanced high school] or undergraduate students … In short, the book is excellent, providing not merely the details of its subject but demonstrating how to study physical geography from an inclusive, truly holistic viewpoint."
Steve Rowlatt, The Geological Society
"… the breadth of its coverage is far greater than [A-level textbooks] and goes well beyond [them] … the book may serve to whet a curious student's appetite to study physical geography in further depth …"
Harriet Allen, Geological Magazine
