Book: The Ghost Map

November 27, 2006

I first learned of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Ghost-Map-Steven-Johnson/dp/1594489254/sr=8-1/qid=1164649589/ref=pdbbssr1/104-2598303-1862327?ie=UTF8&s=books" title="The Ghost Map">The Ghost Map_ from a posting on Kottke. Once the book was released I picked up a copy and read it from cover to cover. It is a thoroughly fascinating look at science, myth, cities, disease, and people. Steven Johnson is rapidly becoming the Tracy Kidder or John McPhee of my generation.
