Maphead by Ken Jennings

Written by Ken Jennings (the very Ken Jennings who was a record-winning “Jeopardy!” contender) this is a charming, witty book. Written with a blend of memoir, humor, anecdote, and serious research, Jennings breaks into the world of maps. From map making, to map collecting, to Google maps, to the ways pop-icons plan their tour stops, Jennings has written a surprisingly delightful title whose aim is to “rescue geography from irreverence.” Truly this is perfect for the know-it-all in your life, who could stand to know a little bit more.
