Believe it or not, this small pocket atlas is among my favorites of any atlas that I own. The scales used are very generous, usually 1:25,000,000 or less. Topography is shaded to give some indication of the terrain, and the selection and use of color is very tastefully done. The only complaint I can levy is that a few important countries (India to name one) are placed to fall right down the split of two pages and are very difficult to read.
There is also a gazeteer of countries showing flags and giving basic information about each, something rarely found in atlases of this size.

Format: Paperback
The POCKET ATLAS OF THE WORLD is a good reference that squeezes oodles of information into a relatively small book.

Fully illustrated with color maps of both physical and political boundaries, time zones and nutshell statistics (including flags) about each country, this is the perfect atlas for those looking for on-the-go information about the world.

Though it would never fit into any of my pockets because it measures approximately 4.5" x 7", the POCKET ATLAS OF THE WORLD is highly recommended. The index is first rate; the at-a-glimpse highlights are informative; and the details about populations fascinating.

Handy, smooth, colorful, small sized -perfect travel companion for anyone who loves browsing the maps and dreaming off the far-off places...I particularly love how countries come and go, they exist for some time and then they disappear; people make up new flags, elect new capitals, new governments, the whole spiel is such fun to observe.
