          I am disabled, at home a lot. I spend my time with maps, books, etc. This Atlas is a treasure if only it were at a table level, on a stand, that would allow deep study without strain to the neck.

                    The atlas has been wonderful for following the worldwide vacation travels of relatives and as an aide for us in planning our upcoming trips. When news casts mention places in the world, we can find out exactly where they are and their relation to other countries. The info is much easier to access in the atlas than on the computer for us.
