"The Oxford Atlas of the World includes, beyond the meticulously detailed topography of every surface on the globe, useful maps of nearly 70 major city centers as well as efficient mini-essays on everything from slums to the global scrap-metal industry. Among 17 beautiful satellite images of population centers, those of Beijing, with its concentric roads encircling the Forbidden City, and Honolulu, a city built atop an undersea volcano, invite the sustained attention we reserve for great works of art." --The Wall Street Journal
"It is, altogether, a handsome product, well-organized, thorough in its coverage, a graphic delight....This is a truly welcome product, a delight to hold, a delight to use." --GeoLounge

The European, African, & Asian maps are good, except for the messy highways; the USA and Mexican maps are an eyesore. The maps start on page 140, after all kinds of information that would probably be more appropriate in an almanac. The maps of the various United States are disappointing because they don't show much detail, and they lump several states together, per page.
In a world that changes so rapidly, it's a great thing to have yearly updates and new information, especially in the informative Gazettier of Nations.
I am very detail oriented and value precision, and this is not an atlas, it is a cartographic dream come true.

As an alternative to the Oxford Atlas, I suggest that the Collins Reference Atlas has some merit. Its statistics are quite comprehensive with referenced sources and each section has several web links. Also, the just as useful Collins Atlas is less than half the price of the Oxford.
