The Rand McNally 2013 Atlas for the three countries has some great qualities. I postponed a year to get an updated atlas because I also wanted the most current census figures from 2010.
The Atlas is easy to use and similar to one that I bought years ago. I wished that the editors would consider updating the colors and highlighting some of the features and adding more landmarks such as cemeteries into the maps as well.
There are some omissions and mistakes like Brick Township, New Jersey which is a heavily populated shore town in Ocean County. I looked for it in the index section where it should have been listed and wasn't. Apart from this small mistake, I hope they could correct it for 2014 Atlas.
I also noticed that Studio City in California was also omitted from the index and map regarding Los Angeles, California.
As for the this atlas, I enjoy looking at the maps for my own amusement and learning about the other states, Mexico, and Canada.
