Why Buy This Book? Because "the book is superb! It could become the definitive work of its kind," according to [a past Director of the] Office of Metric Programs, U.S. Department of Commerce.

Review:

"For a quick way to think in metric and avoid constant conversions, get" this book. -- International Travel News, Sep 1994, p 68

"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...." "The wall chart that comes with this book is a jewel...superior to the pedantic wall chart published by the U.S. Government...." -- American National Metric Council, Metric Reporter, Jan-Feb 1995, p 3
