Free Geography Book Until March 31: How Maps Change Things by Ward Kaiser

ODT Maps, the owner of the Gall–Peters projection map, and Ward Kaiser have teamed up to offer Kaiser's new book, How Maps Change Things: A Conversation About the Maps We Choose, and the World We Want, for free for the rest of March 2012.  Available formats include Kindle, PDF, Apple-friendly, and Android-friendly.

Kaiser is known for his critical geography work, including a co-authoring with critical geography/pedophile Denis Wood who managed to send off on a rant last year.  His book does go political in some instance and I do not agree with some his map analysis but one can learn much about maps as arguments from Kaiser.

Anyways, this is a good free book that does make some very good points.

There was a West Wing subplot dedicated to this in one episode.
