Book review: On the Map by Simon Garfield

The largest atlas ever published was so big it required its own plane for delivery to buyers, Simon Garfield tells us in On the Map. You needed US$100,000 to buy the book and six strong lads to carry it. The atlas was amazing but user-unfriendly - a bit like this admirable but occasionally unwieldy book.
