Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings releases new book about geography

Ken Jennings, famous for winning 74 straight Jeopardy games and $2.52 million dollars on the show, has always loved geography. As a child, he slept with a Hammond World Atlas under his pillow every night.

In his new book, "Maphead," Jennings  explains why both himself and many others around the world find maps and geography so fascinating.

Jennings discusses the state of geography education in the United States and comments on new navigation technology today on American Morning.
