RMQRWA: the Rand McNally Quick Reference World Atlas

The RMQRWA is an amazing bargain at $5.95. It is slim, light and hugely helpful. It's the sort of book you'd like to keep by the TV as you watch the news and movies, so you can quickly clarify the locations of nations and cities.

In world geography class under teacher Robert Trudeau - at Caddo Magnet High School - you are required to have a copy in class each day. It will be well used. And you will learn that its salty, if mild, taste goes well with coffee, tea and cucumber sandwiches, among other savories.

Find it at Barnes & Nobles, Books A Million and numerous other book stores and racks where reference books are sold.
