Collins World Atlas: Illustrated Edition 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

I chose this world atlas because it is a paperback edition, and for its size. It is fairly large: 9"x12", but it is light weight for easy use. The atlas includes lots of info in the first 35 pages about the world: geological, political, economical and anthropological. Each country has its flag and data shown. The maps are divided by continent. Each continental section has a short written introduction with pertinent information. My only caveat is that the type size is small. I use a magnifying glass to read the index and to look at the maps. (I use reading glassed for everyday reading.) Even so, I enjoy using this atlas. I think it is a good reference book for puzzle solving. It would probably be a good atlas for middle school and high school students too.
