Finally! A book about maps written by someone who actually likes maps. And not just anybody, but Ken Jennings. Early proto-maps, fanciful maps from the 16th century, road atlases, Google maps, games with maps, the national geography bee, and geo-caching - they’re all here and all accompanied by the kind of quirky detail that Jennings is so good at.

If you love maps, this is a book for you.
