"Profiles of Michigan is a useful reference... There is an excellent user guide and introduction at the beginning of the book, which is helpful in adding more depth and detail to the short profiles found for each populated place. By far the best feature of this reference tool is the comparative statistics section... I would recommend this book to a public library or school library to purchase as it is well organized, well researched, informative, and would be a good addition to a quick reference collection."
