Hey forons. I want to further my knowledge of geography, partially for my job, partially just so I don't feel like a dumb American when I hear a country name and can't place it.
I could start with a coloring book, or someone once recommended keeping an atlas in the bathroom...
But, I have this idea that there must be a book out there that gives a little interesting world history along with some maps. Maybe even something about the evolution of the "global marketplace" or empires and such.
Of course I could JFGI
or do some research on Amazon, but I thought someone on the DPF might have a favorite to recommend. Whaddya say?
