Rating: 4 out of 5

This was bought at a book event as part of Brighton Festival at which Simon Garfield did an hour long presentation about his book. So I knew roughly what to expect.

It’s very nicely put together into chapters and shorter chapters (called pocket maps) covering maps of all kinds, historic, modern, digital, analogue, of the brain featuring lots of illustrations and photographs gathered during his research. This was quite obviously a lot of work to put together, and it shows.
