"[A] rich exploration...For readers curious about nature, science, the human brain, and how we navigate the world." --Library Journal

"O'Connor talked to just the right people in just the right places, and her narrative is a marvel of storytelling on its own merits, erudite but lightly worn. There are many reasons why people should make efforts to improve their geographical literacy, and O'Connor hits on many in this excellent book--devouring it makes for a good start." --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"Rich and multifaceted...O'Connor brings her subjects to life in a delightful manner." --Publishers Weekly

"In this lyrical look at both our small, shining planet and the unexpected science of how we navigate it, M.R. O'Connor reminds us that exploration is journey and understanding, that we sometimes best see the world and ourselves while standing on a path less taken." --Deborah Blum, author of The Poison Squad: One Chemist's Single-Minded Crusade for Food Safety at the Turn of the Twentieth Century

"This revelatory book has the qualities of a grand adventure. M. R. O'Connor leads readers out into the world to discover something deep within themselves. Treat yourself to Wayfinding." --Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows and The Glass Cage

"An insightful examination of the human mind and navigation. O'Connor weaves together different disciplines of science in an accessible way which makes for an engaging read from start to finish." --Mary A. van Balgooy, executive director, Society of Woman Geographers

"I thoroughly enjoyed this deep and absorbing investigation. Fascinating." --Tristan Gooley, author of The Natural Navigator

--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
