The sort of book you couldnt imagine you needed until you got it and now you cant imagine how you could do without it . . . Its fantastic!

- Seattle Times
"Impossibly nerdy and thoroughly compelling"
- Kansas City Star
"This is the kind of book that would be incredibly fun to browse with kids as part of a world geography investigation--and also the sort of thing that makes great bedtime reading if you want to salt your dreams with the possibility of travel to distant cities. Sheer public transit/map porn!"
- Boingboing.com
"Fascinating"
-Peter Greenberg, National Public Radio
"Even if you are not a "map person" this book makes it so easy to experience the unique perspective of rail-based transit. Artistically a treat with its interesting colors, shapes and design; it's a coffee table essential. Ovenden brings a unique perspective to maps and to travel in general. Transit Maps of the World is a must-read for the literary traveller"
