Nice Book, But Missing Some Nice Features
on May 23, 2010
I hadn't bought an atlas in a very long time, and a new one was way over-due. With all the changes in the world, my old one was pretty out-of-date. I finally decided on the Oxford one. I'm okay with it, but, while this one is a handsome book, has great maps and a lot of info on the planets, etc.., I really miss some of the features my old one had. My old atlas (a Rand-McNally) had cities/towns (and their population) listed with each map. For the U.S. it even listed zip codes for each town! With this new one, ALL the cities are listed in the back of the book, and there are no population stats. It's much less convenient than what I'm used to. I will keep it and use it, but I'm still searching.
