I'm aware that when a product doesn't meet my expectations, I should first examine those to determine if the fault is mine rather than the product's. I feel that the word "Atlas" in the title and the subtitle referring to "Maps and Facts at Your Fingertips" strongly suggests that there might be at least one useful travel map within its covers. I see now that that assumption is entirely invalid. "Atlas" is in the sense of "a bound volume of charts, plates, or tables illustrating any subject" rather than "a bound collection of maps."
This book is clearly designed as a sociological study of China rather than a pocket atlas; perhaps useful for writers, teachers, and journalists. It is completely useless as a travel reference. Fortunately, I got it from a third-party vendor at a small fraction of its cover price, which seems seriously high for a 64 page book.
