"Your entire worldview will change once you study this unique atlas…The best part of this book, however, is the section "Nature, Man and Society in 246 Thematic Maps." Each presents a single subject expressed entirely in terms of color: dark for high values; light for low ones. This makes it easy to see and assimilate the maps' content--an important feature since up to 16 can be dedicated to a single subject. Moreover, over 40,000 pieces of individual information have been compiled for these 246 maps." ---USA Today (Magazine)
