Format: Paperback
Not much to say in the face of facts, just watch, understand and learn.
Certainly, it may not get 5 stars as a coffee table showoff book. But if you are not getting the book for idle reasons, but because you need to know, in order to make decisions, it does deserve its 5 stars.

If you expend the time to understand what the information presented means, you get access to information that would be limited to large multinational corporations and governments without the worldbank publishing these books.

The text is fine, but the way the kindle version gives you the sections of the page is weird. My teacher assigns book readings by page number, so it's nearly impossible for me to do them from the kindle. The charts on pages +128 can't be veiwed properly because this kindle book has a hard time with it. Instead of buying this book, I would suggest googling the title and the edition and you will find it free online, page by page, with figures and charts and all.

The Atlas of Global Development: A Visual Guide to the World's Greatest Challenges is an invaluable research tool. It contains not only hard statistics, but also personal opinions on how to interpret them. It is very detailed, yet still easily readable. A great tool for anyone interested in the current state of global affairs.
