On the Map

'Completely enthralling' Daily Mail
'There couldn't be anyone better to write about our love for maps than Simon Garfield, who is a master at unearthing strange facts and mixing them with a lively personal narrative ... fascinating' Conde Nast Traveller

It's funny, often surprising, packed with information, and best of all a riveting read, and we thought you'd love it, so we've teamed up with Profile Books to give away copies of Simon Garfield's brand new book, On the Map (£16.99). All you have to do is tell us about your favourite Cool Places by posting a review of somewhere we mention or by adding a new place to Cool Places. We'll send the best ones a free copy of this great book. So, that's another Christmas present sorted!
