It is a massive and quite heavy tome but to contain all that data it has to be! Worth every penny. Anyone with a genuine interest in geography should own a copy of this book!
I was a bit surprised that the small town Regusse in South France, where I spend my holidays last summer is not on the map (but somewhat larger surrounding cities are).
The index is a major part of the atlas, and perhaps it would be better in a separate volume?
There are some introductory essays on the principles and power of maps and mapping. I would have liked if they were signed, so they could better be cited. By the way, it is stated that a map cannot be neutral, and I agree. But not much is said about the politics and priorities of the present atlas.
I suggest that the major criteria should be: Places I (or other customers) have been or would like to go, or places we would like to look up, because we read about them in the media. That is what I buy an atlas for, and I think this is the best on the market.
Of course my sons (in the 30s and in computer business) think it is old-fashioned because they rely on Google maps. Perhaps when technology and online maps becomes better they will be right, but not for now.
I was in doubt whether to buy the comprehensive or the concise Times atlas. I think Amazon's information could be better for making this decision, e.g. by providing examples of maps that can be compared.
Also: The atlas is delivered in a fine box, but my wife and I agreed that it too inconvenient to take this heavy book out and in of it, so we discarded it.
Concerning neutrality. In opposition to what I wrote above, I now see that the official announcement of this atlas, for example in Amazon, UK, says: "Independent - apolitical and neutral".
