Publisher's Summary

Don't Know Much About Geography: Everything You Need to Know About the World but Never Learned. Was there an Atlantis? What's the smallest country in the world? What's the difference between a jungle and a rain forest? Kenneth C. Davis, author of Don't Know Much About History, Don't Know Much About the Civil War, and Don't Know Much About the Bible, turns his inimitable wit and wide-ranging knowledge to the subject of geography, and proves once and for all that there is a lot more to it than labeling countries on a map.
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.

It skips everything

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you aren't reading it for school but you are an intellectual who wants to learn about the world.

What was most disappointing about Kenneth C. Davis’s story?

It was boring and too intellectual for me

What didn’t you like about Kenneth C. Davis’s performance?

It skips random sections of the book and then it also rambles on about stuff that isn't in the book.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Don't Know Much About Geography?

I would cut the random stuff and have the reader actually read the book

Any additional comments?

I was reading the book while listening and it is really hard to follow along because he skips so much of the book
