If you're curious about the world and want to know more about this fascinating place, Geography For Dummies is a great place to start. Whether you're sixteen or sixty, this fun and easy guide will help you make more sense of the world you live in. Geography For Dummies gives you the tools to interpret the Earth's grid, read and interpret maps, and to appreciate the importance and implications of geographical features such as volcanoes and fault lines. Plus, you'll see how erosion and weathering have and will change the earth's surface and how it impacts people. You'll get a firm hold of everything from the physical features of the world to political divisions, population, culture, and economics. You'll also discover:How you can have a rainforest on one side of a mountain range and a desert on the otherHow ocean currents help to determine the geography of climatesHow to choose a good location for a shopping mallHow you can properly put the plant to good use in everything you doHow climate affects humans and how humans have affected the climateHow human population has spread and the impact it has had on our worldIf you're mixed up by map symbols or mystified by Mercator projections Geography For Dummies can help you find your bearings. Filled with key insights, easy-to-read maps, and cool facts, this book will expand your understanding of geography and today's world.
