Maphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography WonksMaphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks by Ken Jennings
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Enjoyable book! I wasn't sure about it at first, but it brought out the (somewhat) closeted maphead in myself. There are chapters on lots of different map-related topics (geocaching, the Geography Bee, roadgeeks, etc.) and while some are better than others, it was a good read. It helps that Ken Jennings is a pretty entertaining writer.
