MAPS OF THE WORLD
Atlases are among my favorite books, and I've never warmed much to electronic versions. But the Rand McNally New Millennium World Atlas for Windows 95 and NT is a big improvement. It lacks the visual appeal of a print atlas but offers an impressive amount of information at a $50 price. One advantage is the ease with which you can find a place simply by picking its name from a list of 1.6 million possibilities. Another is the ability to switch instantly among a variety of map types, such as physical and political, and easily change the level of detail. The atlas also has detailed street maps of 65 major cities.
