Much, much more fun than a book on maps has any right to be. Who knew Ken Jennings was actually such a great author? Personally, I possess exactly zero ability to read maps, so I was hoping this book would just have some fun trivia; it turns out I really quite enjoyed it, even though it has precious little trivia content, but lots of fun conversations with people connected to maps in all kinds of interesting ways-- from geology bee contestants to geochachers-- it was very interesting. Ken Jenning's tone is chatty and informative-- like talking with your very smart friend who is just as entertained at this new information as you are. I would totally recommend this one!
