Generally there are three entries on each page, but major aircraft are described in more detail (up to 1-1.5 pages). Almost all of the 650 planes are illustrated with a color or black-and-white photo or a nice 3D drawing. Some have both. The paper and printing quality is superb, probably the best you can find.
The only thing I didn't like was mediocre photos of some recent Russian aircraft (Su-24, Su-27, Mig-15). They could have found lots of terrific images of the planes currently in service if they tried. But that's OK for the price.
All the data in the book is in alphabetical order by the manufacturer's name. But there's also an index in the end, it will help you search by plane name.
It's a fantastic value! But if you need a more detailed information, buy Enzo Angelucci's 'Illustrated Encyclopedia...' (if you manage to find it).
