Absolutely can not beat the price I scored my subscription at and the articles, as always are well written and packed into this magazine. There is not a plethora of advertisements, which is refreshing.
The Atlantic is one of the best monthly news magazines around. The writers are top-notch and the subject matter is always interesting. Back in the day, Rolling Stone had a reputation for cutting-edge investigative reporting (this was a long time ago). The Atlantic is like that Rolling Stone incarnation, grown up.
This magazine is so full of information that I get excited when I see it in the mailbox. I like information but don't want to read 10 pages about a particular topic. This magazine gives you all kinds of information from around the world in various classifications. I used to get The New Yorker but the articles there went on and on. I'm not saying that they weren't well written; just saying that I don't need to know all the details about some things. I'd rather know a few things about everything than everything about a few things. That doesn't apply to work. :-)
We had purchased the Atlantic from newsstands over the years and finally decided to subscribe. We went through Amazon and the process was smooth and worked easily. So now we are subscribers to a magazine that always offers good information and excellent writers. No complaints only praise for a good product and easy subscribing process.
