Visuals highlight 34 cities from all continents in two-page spreads showing the country, language(s), population, and montages of people, culture, and landmarks. Simple sketches give a feeling of the past and seem generic with repetition of elements for several cities, perhaps to indicate commonalities rather than differences. Pronunciation guides for difficult names and definitions for esoteric terms would have been useful.
