Rand McNally World Atlas based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
I already had Goode's World Atlas, but I wanted an atlas that was easier to read and had individual state maps of the US. This is a wonderful atlas to accompany Goode's World Atlas. I will probably use both as they both have their strengths and weaknesses. This atlas has maps of US states, as said before, and it has strictly political maps of the different continents, making it easier to just see where countries are located. It doesn't have as much demographic, social, environmental, or economic information as Goodes. As a team, Goode's and the World Atlas make a great atlas set! I would highly recommend this book for a person that wanted a quick reference to all the countries of the world, plus the US states.
Great for everyday use as a reference and learning tool. Reference listing for locating rivers and bodies of water would be helpful. Good value for general readers and students. Lightweight and portable for taking along in tote bag or briefcase. Information and illustrations relative to price make it a very good value.
so I went to the store for this one. I looked at all they had for world atlases, and this one had the most detail and best images by far. Less cumbersome than a hardcover and has an extensive index. I highly recommend it. Only thing I would change would be the binding, so that the atlas could be laid completely flat. I'm sure over time and with repeated use the biding will be worn out.
