Summary: Smithsonian Magazine gives you an intelligent perspective on world topics.
Comment: This subscription is my introduction to Smithsonian and it comes two months after I ordered it. I'd actually forgotten about ordering it!

For 12 issues of thought provoking articles at essentially $1 per issue, I think it's a good buy. The articles are well written and not something I'd just look up on Wikipedia. They make you think a bit broader in scope than during the course of an ordinary day, and I like that.

Pro's:
+Intelligently written articles on unusual topics
+$1 per issue at current Amazon rates.
+Photography is a good addition to the articles, but it doesn't overtake them.

Con's:
- Arrives two months after ordered.
- Lots and lots of advertisements. (The same or perhaps more numerous than the articles.)

Conclusion - Order this magazine if you don't mind waiting for a well written, inexpensive, mind-expanding read to arrive in your mailbox, but I'd skip it if you need a Christmas gift for THIS year.

Summary: one great magazine!
Comment: This is the only magazine that I receive that I read cover to cover, then bring to school for my students to read. The articles are short enough to hold your attention but long enough to tell you what you need to know. In every issue there are several articles that are fantastic and the rest are very good, more than you can say for the average magazine!
