This is a book that I enjoyed mostly because of my fascination with maps and charts.
Apparently lots of old maps of the world contained several mistakes, most of which were islands that don't exist, and this book talks about several of these "phantom" islands.
The most bizarre thing about this was that many of these non-existant places were believed to be inhabited by all sorts of fantastic creatures or unusual people, and this made for the most fascinating reading in the book.
Next book: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Stieg Larsson)
