Globalography: Our Interconnected World revealed in 50 Maps by Chris Fitch

I have not reviewed a book in the last few days so today I am going to try and pace my multiple reviews but will at least finish writing them by tonight. I got started with the last post and will be doing three more including this one.

I received a copy of this via NetGalley and I was intrigued by the blurb. I think this is one of those books that would be more impressive in hardcover and in a plus size addition that you can spread out on a table or the floor and pour over it in a group. It is definitely not one of those books that would be as appreciated if read alone. That is what I felt by the time I read the last map.

This is a book of world maps, of flows between the different countries. Each map depicting the most random amounts of information. It ranges from soy production and export all the way to different types of satellites and the owners and their roles. There was too much information in each map to be unpacked instantaneously, it is followed by a page of some interesting explanations that made reading it fun. If I had the physical copy to open out, and take my time with each map I might have liked it more.

      1. Exactly πŸ˜‰ plus you get to know your new favourite genre. πŸ™‚ After starting a book blog, I read erotica for the first time. I might not read any in the future but it was nice to give a new genre a try. πŸ˜‰
