    Comments about National Geographic Compact Atlas of the World:

    It is a poor excuse for an atlas. The binding hides a large percentage of the information that is needed in a lot of cases. A spiral binding would have allowed access for this information.

    Don't be conned into buying it.

    I can get better inforamtion off my iPhone.

      This is a great little atlas. Fits in a purse or travel bag for sightseeing. Would also be good for a student since it's lightweight and compact. Book is small so the print and maps are very small.

      From the dawn of humankind to today's global complexities, this monumental volume presents world history from an original perspective that provides fresh insights with every colorful spread. Few references are as invaluable, all-inclusive, and satisfying to browse. For readers of all ages, world history is easily accessible, depicted as never before—so that events occurring simultaneously around the world can be viewed at-a-glance together. For example, Texas Instruments launched the pocket calculator the same year the Soviet Union launched the first manned space station, in 1971. Columbus sailed from Spain the year Martin Behaim constructed a terrestrial globe in Nuremberg. The California Gold Rush followed the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s, and the Greek dictatorship of Papadopoulos was overthrown the same year Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia was deposed and U.S. president Nixon resigned, in 1974. The book's innovative time line truly sets it apart, allowing readers to scan across a spread and explore a single area or compare contemporary societies across the globe.
