Firstly Amazon - as usual the purchase arrived sooner than I expected - just 4 days from initial order date.
Secondly the product - this atlas was bought as a replacement for my 20+ year old atlas and is absolutely excellent. So much information and "bang" up to date.Great maps and a range of other interesting and useful facts. The only possible downside to this product is the size & hence weight - but not enough to make the difference between buying & and not buying.Good price as well.

Collins World Atlas: Complete Edition is an amazing atlas and it's certainly a bargain at this price. Firstly, the maps are very detailed and this atlas has also many topical world maps such as Global Issues, Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Population etc. Furthermore, this atlas it's filled with thousands of facts and what is more, you can find flags and statistics about every country and their teritories. But what I liked the most, it was the Geographical Dictionary which contains a lot of useful information and many words are explained with the help of some simple-to-understand images too. Likewise, the index fulfilled my expectations and moreover, it has some nice statistics underneath some locations (for example underneath Iceland writes "2nd largest island in Europe"). Even if this atlas was first published in 2008, it was probably reprinted in 2011, because for example the earthquake in Leogane, Haiti(2010) is mentioned and I also received it with a different cover from the one in the image, but to me it seemed way more pleasant than the original one. I also found his weight and size very suitable for my needs. I mean I can always hold it on my desk when I'm studying with many other books around. This would have been harder if the atlas had been bigger, so I think this is the best buy for someone who consults the atlas very often. In the NG Atlas or in the Times's one, the maps are probably more detailed, but honestly I don't want to learn all the cities with less than 5,000 inhabitants from Bangladesh.

A superbly presented, up-to-date atlas, featuring a wealth of maps and additional relevant information. Ideal as a reference volume with just the right depth of detail. I am very pleased I selected this atlas over the others on offer at a similar price.

There's quite a lot of statistical information but we miss more detailed maps and consequently more information on individual countries and places, like the names of important places in a country, the population of towns ... which are included in Hammond Citation World Atlas from the seventies.
