This compact atlas gives me enough information to provide general topography, distances, and current political boundaries without taking up much space in my messenger bag (aka, "man-purse!!")
I have seen some complaints about inadequate detail and such from other reviewers. However, if you are looking for a rapid reference source that can fit in your pocket and only costs about $10 on Amazon, this is a good deal. If you need more detail, go ahead and lug around your 9th Edition of the Nat Geo Atlas of the World. That extra 12 pounds is sure to help define your shoulders! (Add the historical atlas from the 6th or 8th edition to double the weight!)
Some people will certainly prefer to get to maps using a tablet or a smartphone. However, this little volume is sturdily built with tough, flexible covers and good, heavy paper that should hold up well in the damp, and its battery never drains!
I would certainly recommend this to friends, and I plan to purchase a few more as gifts.
Unfortunately the binding of the book is pretty tight so anything in the gutter is obfuscated. For a book this small it's possible that a ringed binder would have worked better.
