Explores the history of maps and mapmaking, from the ancient world to Google Earth and video game maps. A bit disjointed at times, and with the odd error that makes you wonder how accurate the rest of it is (Scott and Shackleton sailed from Lyttelton, not Lyttleton!), but overall an interesting look at the way our idea of the world has been shaped.
