Review

On Map Addict:

'Mike Parker offers an exhilarating celebration of the humble map.' Mail on Sunday

This excellent book on the pleasures of maps and navigation, which is also a withering attack on the infantilisation of the satnav age’. Daily Telegraph

‘A highly engaging and thoughtful, haphazard and personal, meander around maps and map-related arcane.' Daily Mail

'This eclectic, funny and warm book should be on the shelves of everyone who has spent hours staring at a map.' The Great Outdoors

'A witty entreaty to leave the satnav in the car, and to head for the hills with the Ordnance Survey.' BBC Country File magazine

‘Parker proves a witty and engaging guide’ Guardian

‘Mike Parker makes of a book about footpaths a wonderfully exhilarating literary excursion on and off a hundred beaten tracks’ – Jan Morris CBE , historian, author and travel writer

‘Mike Parker’s book on footpaths is a genuine page-turner’. – Walk Magazine
