      Cons

      • Binding Hides Info
      • Format Is Too Small
      • Not What I Expected
      • Sketchy Information

      Best Uses

      • To Library For Deduction
      • Trash can

      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.
