I used this book as a textbook for a intro-level GIS course offered at an R1 university. While it contains some of the basic ideas, most of it is very tedious, unhelpful, and repetitive, e.g. many sentences and paragraphs in many chapters describe how impressed the authors are with the technological advances offered by cell phones. A lot of unreflective philosophy of science jargon takes center stage instead of interesting conceptual discussions. This appears to be a poor 'how-to' book as well as a poor 'big ideas' book. Moreover, it is expensive. I would not recommend this as a textbook or a reference book.

Still reading it (only on chaper 8) but already it has been a slog to get through. way to wordy and overly complext about concepts so much so that it can make fairly simple ideas hard to understand. Also I keep wishing things like chapter 6 where at the beginning and that thay had cut out a good chunk of chapter 1. Finally am I the only one who is seeing grammar mistakes and other mistakes in the actual writing? it just feels like these people really needed to get and actual professional writer to go over everything and make it easier to understand.

I haven't finished this book yet but it will not be long before I do. Very interesting and very well explained. I have enjoyed every word in this book. And it jumps right into the core facts that are a need to know for practical use and knowledge.

What is it with some of these fields (disaster research is another good one) - they spend an inordinate amount of time gushing on and on about the 'fathers of the field' as if to suggest that no other humans alive could have done what they did. Don't get me wrong, the pioneers of this and other fields are remarkable people, but if I want to read a biography, I'll buy one. This book spends far too much time on the history of the field and too little on today's practical applications. It gets the job done, but you can tear a lot of pages out when you get it and it won't diminish your knowledge a hoot.

I found this book to be a bit difficult to read through but overall it was an excellent textbook for my class. Good reference for GIS information.
Gosar
This is an extremely comprehensive text book that I'm glad I bought, so will have to reference throughout my career and even beyond. Even though technology will change, the concepts that are taught and explained in the text should be applicable in any environment of Geospatial Information.

Works great, highly recommend.
Great textbook, but my Professor chose to use the older version so this one sat on my bookshelf. Hopefully I will use it in an upcoming semester.
