I am a map lover and lived and explored many countries with always a map in my hands. I went to get a basic Atlas for my 9 yr old kid and choose among the many this Oxford Essential for the following reasons:
1) great clear and easy to read graphics. Mountains and plains are immediate to the eye, rivers are easy to follow and clearly named. Towns and cities are evident but do not obscure the geography. Not too many nor too few names on maps. Very well readable
2) Each page has a complete geographic area. The bigger version of this Atlas, called Oxford World Atlas and priced 3 times more, has bigger maps but fractions countries like England, Spain etc in a way that the reader cannot get the overall picture in his geographic mind. If you want that kind of detail you better go on google maps.
3) Not confusing. It is not burdened by color photos of people and landscapes on each page like other Atlases are that mix maps with photos with a result that is more suitable for a travel magazine.
4) It has a few air photos and (too) many detailed city maps.
5) Decent price and small enough size to be portable and storable easy.
A very well balanced item, indeed. Only fault: it lacks the wonderful Ocean floor maps that constitute 3/4 of our earth!!

I hate to be negative but I bought one from this website before but lost or misplaced it and thought I was ordering the same atlas. This one is bulky and cumbersone and not as eye pleasing as the other. Sorry if this offends u but I can't blantantly lie about it.
