From often amusing perceptions people have had through the ages about the world and the universe to the changing map of today, Davis shows how geography is really a great crossroads of many fields: biology, meteorology, astronomy, history, economics, and even politics. In this lively, entertaining, and endlessly fascinating presentation, you'll hear about the personalities that helped shape the world and learn the answers to questions that have vexed most of us since grade school. Along the way, Davis offers an affectionate ode to the earth: a celebration of the earth, a searching investigation of the destruction of our habitat, and a practical guide to saving our home planet.

If you aren't reading it for school but you are an intellectual who wants to learn about the world.
It was boring and too intellectual for me
It skips random sections of the book and then it also rambles on about stuff that isn't in the book.
I would cut the random stuff and have the reader actually read the book
I was reading the book while listening and it is really hard to follow along because he skips so much of the book
