Without launching into arguments for the advisability of America's going metric, the author does state [in Measure with Metric] that most of the world uses the metric system. He then involves his readers in a series of simple projects to learn and absorb metric measures…. It is all so clear and practical, moving in such orderly sequence, that reluctant Americans of any age could profit from this introduction to the inevitable.
