"This clearly written and comprehensive...book which includes plenty of exercises, problems, and estimations...is a welcome tool for teachers or anyone else...." -- Odyssey, June 1994, p 17

"[A]ll educators...will appreciate this easy-to-understand" book. -- Association of Illinois Middle-Level Schools Newsletter, March 1994, p.5

"[A]n admirable presentation of the" metric system....[T]his book and accompanying wall chart are excellent...." -- The Mathematics Teacher, Oct 94, p.573

"[A]n excellent overview of the metric system.... The included colorful, easy-to-understand wall chart is a minicourse in itself." The book "is filled with hands-on activities to teach metric without first converting from" English measure. -- Math Teaching in the Middle School, Nov-Dec 1994, p 257

A "delightful book that...guides the layperson to the metric system." "The fact that unit conversion is given short shrift speaks volumes about Shoemaker's approach...."
