DK World History Atlas: Mapping The Human Journey. I came across an earlier version of this book on a recent cruise in the Aegean, but this is a magnificent book and wonderfully helpful to any world traveler and history buff. the maps and text are terrific.

DK publishes highly visual, photographic nonfiction for adults and children. DK's aim is to inform, enrich, and entertain readers of all ages, and everything DK publishes, whether print or digital, embodies the unique DK design approach. I was disappointed in that I was hoping to get another World Reference Atlas out by DK in 1998, which I don't think they've ever redone. That provided very detailed information re: stats of MANY topics presented in small colorful bar graphs, as well as other detailed information.

This Reference Atlas is a MUST for students and anyone else interested in of countries of the world. My only criticism is it was last updated 12 years ago! Many details are still very relevant, but many are also outdated. I have purchased 3 of these books as gifts for friends who also love this book. Hopefully DK will publish another updated version soon.

I bought this for my son, who wore out an older copy of this book. He seems to enjoy geography.

This book is filled with so much interesting information. My husband got it for his birthday and we both love it. However, it is sadly outdated. It said that it was revised, the last time it was revised though was 1996 so you have to keep that in mind when reading the book.

I did not have a Bibical Atlas and after looking around decided on this one. I like it because it tells individually the facts on each country and has good maps of each country.
Orevise
I was disappointed the first moment I received my copy of this book. I asked my self, where are the maps? My expection for an Atlas was a collection of maps. Other reference materials are welcome but they are incidental. If I were to look for the reference materials, I would have gone for the CIA World Fact Book (all the information of which is available free on-line through the CIA's web site). The maps of this book are buried in pages and pages of reference materials. For most countries, the ratio is as much as 1 page of map versus 5 pages of other materials. It simply does not have the feel of an Atlas.
This shortcoming alone can only downgrade this book to three stars, as it has some merits as discussed below. One factual error made me down grade this book even further. It indicates that China was established in 1912, and Taiwan 1949. In reality, the regime in Beijing claimed its foundation in 1949, and the one in Taipei 1912.
The book merits the two stars for the following featuures that I liked, among others:
The color maps indicate land height.
There is a section that deals with territories of the world that are not contries. For example, have you heard about Jonston Atoll and Kingman Reef? Well the book will tell you that both are U.S. Territories.

I ordered this book based on the customer reviews that I had read, and I wasn't disappointed. This book earns every star it gets and more. It is very well organized with colorful, easy-to-read graphs and charts. The information presented on each country is beyond belief: health, wealth, ethnicity, environment, resources, education, politics, foreign aid, transportation, history, etc, etc, etc. Each heading usually gives some sort of graph/chart with a concise, easy-to-understand explanation. Well worth the money.

This is an amazingly useful atlas of all the countries of the world broken down into various key areas. It is now being published under the title The Financial Times World Reference Atlas. After looking for an updated version of this title for years I came across it on Amazon.co.uk site and it is also available from the US site. Hope this info helps others who have been seeking a recent updated edition also.
Well sorted, and nice book. All th information is well placed with full biodata of country. Plus a well established world Atlas of the world
