Product description

Review

New Scientist The ideal book for quiz buffs --New Scientist

BBC Focus This curious little book is neither a reference work with comprehensive and precise conversion tables, nor a rambling discursive treatise. Rather, it takes the form of a guidebook to the world of weights and measures --BBC Focus

Good Book Guide This is a fascinating and orderly compilation of different forms of measurement. --Good Book Guide
