|Measuring America is the story of why America has ended up with its unique system of weights and measures — the American Customary System, unlike any other in the world — and how this has profoundly shaped our country and culture. In the process, the book reveals the power contained within the acres and miles, ounces and pounds, that we use every day without ever realizing their significance.|
