Overall, these maps are pretty useful for Tolkien fans. I'd recommend this book for anybody read Tolkien's works, but particularly for somebody reading the Silmarillion as the book really helps clarify things. These maps don't just show the landscape (most editions of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit contain basic maps of Middle-Earth) but also tracks events in the book and shows the paths the major characters took. Unfortunately, some of the depictions in this book are at odds with the Peter Jackson movies, but that's hardly the author's fault. Overall, recommended.
