It is a tad heavy, but then again if it is going to include maps of every country in the world, then it should be.
The world has changed much over the past 60 or so years. The maps I drew of Africa, as a child, bear little resemblance to the Africa of the past several decades. The USSR is gone, & now all the countries are in the National Geographic Atlas of the World. There are countries I have never even heard of!
I love watching Newsroom Tokyo, it is helping me to learn about parts of the world, we in the US, know very little about.
I'm slowly learning a great of what's happening on the other side of the world, & now I can find them on the map. I learned Burma is no longer, it's now called Myanmar, & I can find it in my gorgeous atlas!!
Anyway, if you can handle the weight, & I agree it is substantial, maybe 9 1/2 - 10 lbs, then this atlas is just what you are looking for!
With this Atlas, when I try to locate a country, or area, I can now find it, & I can actually read the font!!!
Would recommend this to anyone who is interested in our ever changing world.
Of similar Comprehensiveness one has also The Times Comprehensive World Atlas 14th Edition ISBN 978-0007551408 published by HarperCollins UK in November 2014, costing about the same price of the National Geographic Atlas 10th Edition ( and now priced about half the price of the new 15th Edition of The Times Atlas to be issued on November 2018 )
I like looking at maps and google proves to be an excellent source of detailed maps , even of exotic and remote areas of the world but theres also nothing like opening this gorgeous book ( that almost needs its own lectern to be viewed properly , like the Bible perched atop a pulpit) and just leafing through it while your mind wanders.
An excellent purchase !
Ill probably wear this book out.
