I looked at many small world map books before deciding on this one and I'm thrilled. I keep it at my desk to refresh my memory when reading history books, or listening to news on the radio. There are larger maps to give a good overview, then "zoomed" pages to give a closer look at a particular area. Obviously a book this size will not contain detailed maps of a small country. If you are seeking that kind of information you need a larger atlas.

With colleagues I have taught the first term of a huge (800-student) freshman college world-civ class each year for the last twenty years or so. We have always assigned a reference atlas, and although we have tried various ones, this is the book we keep coming back to. It is cheap, indexed, up to date (revised pretty much constantly, although without always changing the ISBN), and sufficiently detailed to be consistently handy. One can always wish for more --it'd be nice if it showed Indian states and made Chinese provinces clearer, for example-- but in these days when it is easy to get additional detail as needed from the Internet, a small, easily grabbed first reference is more important. When we have tried smaller atlases the detail was inadequate. Larger ones seemed wasted because they went beyond most of our needs. This one has always been pretty much "just right."

Roughly half the space in this atlas is devoted to domestic USA maps. In purchasing the "World Atlas" I was looking for much more detail of the foreign nations than is provided here in the space allocated. Many cities and towns in the Middle East, for example, are not even identified.

This atlas is a perfect reference. Updated and easy to use with all information needed to be informed about country locations. It's lean, I like that it doesn't take up much space. I was very pleased when I received it.

I purchased this atlas to get an up to date set of maps. I already own an older version of this atlas which I enjoy using. So, I thought getting the newer version would give me the same maps just with newer information, e.g. new countries of the former Soviet Union and new names of countries in Africa, etc. This it did do, but I found upon closer examination that the maps in general were smaller and showed less detail than the older version. This was especially true for the maps of different sections of the United States and Australia. I wish the publisher would re-publish the older version with the bigger maps, but with the up to date changes. Functionally, this atlas is okay for the price and is useful, but I was somewhat disappointed.

The book is just what I wanted, the list price on the book was $5.99, The list price on Amazon $28. $28. is what I paid. That is to much of a mark up.

this small paperback book of maps of all parts of the world is well done, with clear maps and not much wasteful information. Just give me the maps so I can find locations when I am looking for a place. The print is large enough to read, but without too much confusing and useless information in the maps. Highly useful as a reference source, and much better than other small atlases I tried to use.
