Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
This contains a lot of the content found in the larger, more expensive Times Atlas of the World (Concise Edition, Seventh Edition), including beautiful, detailed city maps and a striking series of physical maps that look like images of the globe. The main drawback is that the spreads are cluttered with fact boxes. Furthermore, the two-page spread of geographic comparisons, handled with great clarity in the larger Times atlases, is confusing here. Still, this atlas is on the same level as the Oxford Concise Atlas of the World and the Goode's, with some variations. For instance, the Times has more details on the U.S. and Canada and less coverage of cultural sites than the others. In other areas, the Times thematic maps do not provide the same level of detail as Goode's, and the Times doesn't give latitude and longitude in the index.
