Book Review Roundup

A few more reviews of recently published mapping books.

Urban Cartography’s review of Mapping Hacks: “[The authors have] made a technical book that is not technical; they’ve made a manual that is automatic; they’ve made a really fun and interesting book on a subject whose instruction manuals are far too often boring and dry.” Boing Boing also has a brief review.

Tyler Mitchell’s Web Mapping Illustrated gets a review at Directions: “But, do be warned, there is code in the book. It’s nicely broken up and explained so that anyone with interest need not be overwhelmed. … This isn’t exactly for non-programmers, but you won’t need to know too much to get things running.”
