Customer Reviews

The graphs are very helpful and informative.

My son is a Geography buff, and it made him very happy to receive this as a gift for the New Year.

If I am not mistaken, there are no country capitals listed in the index.

If I am not mistaken, there are no country capitals listed in the index. I have looked for Moscow, Washington DC, and some others. They simply aren't there. I had an Intro to geography assignment that required me to find the coordinates for these cities. There are probably 50 pages of cities listed with their cords., but no capitols? I have looked to see if they are listed somewhere else in the book but I cannot find them. I give it 1 star for this reason. C'mon Oxford - I trusted this to be a scholarly work because your name was on it.

If I am mistaken and someone is able to find these cities, please let me know and I will gladly take this review down. I hate to review based on one issue (the other parts of the atlas seem to be good) but this issue makes me wonder what else this atlas is lacking. I will likely return it in the next few days.

Purchased for use for a high school geography classroom. Wouldnt have purchased if there had been a review that said, "Don't buy for classroom!" Atlas is not thematic and has driving maps of major cities in the world. Not useful for a Geography class. But, if you want a desk altas to map out a trip, for example, then maybe you might like it.

There are 79 pages wasted on a table of city names versus page number and map location. There are only 89 pages of actual detailed maps. There are 48 pages wasted on world city maps. There are 32 pages wasted on statistics that belong in a world almanac. Only 35% is what an atlas should be. The spine is too stiff. For example in western Canada, you can not read the inside 1.25 inch of the map without breaking the spine. There is only 7.5 inches of readable map on each page

This Atlas doesn't provide large enough US state information compared to an old atlas I have. It does have modern political boundaries of Europe which is why I wanted it.

I wanted a world atlas for my living room, and this one fits the bill. I bought two, and gave one to my best friend. It is amazing how often we look at it. With the news on, we refer to it, and with the Sochi Olympics, it was in constant use. It is just the right size, not too big, and not too small.

If I had been able to review the contents I would have made a different choice. There is too much material that I do not need and the format if the maps could be improved. Comment reflects my particular use only.

The Atlas is up to date and contains other interesting world statistics. Would like to have the bigger Atlas but it was to heavy to handle. Print in this one is small in places.

This is the best World Atlas at any price. Easy to find what I was looking for, Clear maps and easy to read. I love the aerial views. The graphs are very helpful and informative. So much helpful information. The mini maps of the cities with street names. It may seem strange to some but this is an Atlas that is fun to read. Some of the information is like an almanac.
