First as all, I felt contents and pictures seems not carefully picked and organized, and it can not well attract kid's attention.
Secondly, many disputed political topics , e.g, disputed borders , were written/ mapped in this book in a careless, biased or even wrong manner WITHOUT well balanced description. Those should NOT be in a Geographic reference/ encyclopedia book
Overall, felt very disappointed and will return immediately.
The book is divided into continents, then regions, then countries. Each continent and region has a preface talking about major things in that area and cultures.
What interests me most, is the information about individual countries. Each country has a picture of it within a zoomed in map, so you get an idea of the shape of the country. It has a quick facts section, that talks about size, population, religions, education, doctors, and how many TVs per-person (one way to gauge wealth). Then it has the main part for the country, where it talks a little about the culture, people, interesting facts, and sometimes a little history background.
This works for me in learning countries, it is also going to be helpful when I hear of a country and want to know a little more about it.
Also, it has lots of pictures and great page quality.
