Holly: We posted another book about metrication last summer, which you can read about here. Any book from the early 1970’s that markets the coming of metrics needs to GO! Even if it was the best idea ever, it didn’t happen. For those who are interested in the history of how and why it didn’t happen, this is not the book for them.
