Featuring surprising facts (What are the highest-paid public employees in each state? Hint: Most are football coaches), whimsical data (Which US latitudes are home to the most Waffle Houses?), and insightful connections (Who knew the Midwest self-identifies as the most extroverted region of the country?), this book illuminates the unexpected contours of geography, history, politics, and many more fascinating facets of the continent and culture.
