Review by Basil on 4th August, 2011
 
5 stars "Authoritative, well-written with great illustrations."

I bought this as a companion to the New Zealand Historical Atlas, also published by Bateman. It is smaller than the Historical Atlas, but still a good size. It is well illustrated, well written and well referenced. I'm glad I purchased it.

Review by Kevin on 15th August, 2011
 
4 stars "More detailed than I hoped for"

This Contemporary Atlas of NZ is absolutely brilliant. I wasn't fully aware of the detail that it would go into. Geology, Mineral Resources, Climate, Rainfall, Soils, Vegetation, Natural Hazards, Agriculture, Forestry…etc. If these sort of things intertest you, then buy it. If you have intermediate aged school children…definitely buy it!!
