The weekly layout is a huge week + notes format with the days on the left page (with equal space for weekend days, hooray!!) and the entire right page open for lists and notes.
The days have timed lines from 8am to 9pm. Holidays and phases of the moon are printed above the day spaces without taking any space away from the schedule area. Monthly planning calendars for last-this-next month with the current week highlighted are at the bottom of the notes page each week. If you click on the photo to enlarge, you can see that the notes page has dots alongside the lines for the day spaces on the schedule page. This makes it easy to delineate notes for a particular day if you want. Week numbers are printed at the top of the notes page, and week numbers are also noted in a small tab running down the edge of the pages to help you find the week you are looking for easily.
The pages are printed in gray and red inks for a distinctive look.
This planner is packed with useful features. There are pages of international information like telephone codes, average temperatures and international holidays:
There is a two-page spread for seeing all of 2011 at once with the months as columns with a line per day to write in. This is extremely useful for mapping out travel, planning projects, tracking bills due and paid, and keeping assignments from creeping up on you:
There are lots of pages of excellent maps including a very useful and accurate time zones map, and maps of the continents:
In the back of the book there is a reference calendar for last-this-next year. Tucked into the back is an address booklet:

This is a fantastic planner if you need lots of writing space each week, and want the same amount of space to write on weekdays and weekends. Even though the page size is large, the book itself is still only 1/2 inch thick so it is very portable in a work or school bag or larger handbag.
Many thanks again to Karen for sending me this planner!
