“I admit—I’m a geographic klutz, constantly turned around the wrong way. But I never felt lost for a moment inside Maphead. Forget new worlds: Jennings’s charming, witty account reveals a whole other universe.” —Sam Kean, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Disappearing Spoon
“Ken Jennings offers an engaging excursion through the worlds of map making, map collecting, and map use. If you enjoy maps, don't miss it.”—Mark Monmonier, author of How to Lie with Maps
"A literary gem . . . Whether you're a casual cartography ogler or a hardcore geography geek, Maphead will whisk you away into a wonderland that exists where two of the greatest horizons of the human condition, humor and curiosity, converge."--The Atlantic
