A good read for anyone who likes maps and history and thinking about how we view our world and communicate with each other. Go through it slowly to give yourself a chance to really look at each map and consider the commentary.

Comprehensive, fun to read. Many maps in other languages, or so detailed or faded they can't be read much, but still worth reading.
