Tha Map That Changed the World

This is one of my least favorite Simon Winchester books. Usually I love the deep tangents that he takes as he gradually brings about the importance of a person or place. However, in this book, I was never really convinced of William Smith's importance. Sure he did some great work for geology and mapmaking, but the book didn't make a good case for why we should care.
