Jennings discusses our map-impaired society. People don't go outside as much as they used too; therefore, they see little need to know where places are. His assertion that kids today know more Pokemon animals than real animals is even more true, given the recent PokemonGo craze. He goes behind the scenes of the National Geography Bee and into the world of obsessed geocache enthusiasts.

Informative AND entertainingly funny! A perfect combination for a nonfiction book.

Quirky book about Jennings obsession with maps, shared with many others it seems. Interesting perspective on how digital mapping may change our world. Worth a read, though not gripping writing.
