Essential Desk Reference

As a person working professionally in metrology (the science and practice of measurement) for over 30 years, I was both astonished and pleased to discover this book on a client's bookshelf, and immediately purchased one for myself. It is absolutely the most comprehensive measurement conversion reference I have ever seen. It even has a list of what measurements are NOT included because of insufficient verifiable data! I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a need to convert measurements, and I commend the authors for another excellent product. Incidentally, the title initially caught my eye because I'm an occasional contributor to the bimonthly "Measure for Measure" column in ASQ's monthly magazine "Quality Progress" ([...]).

Great companion to Glovers Pocket Ref

Now that I have this book, I don't have to search the world over every time I want to convert some measurement. The format is easy to use and well formatted. A great volume to have for anyone who needs to convert units and can't remember all the formulas.

Almost all you'll ever need

This work is seriously comprehensive, although you may occasionally need a calculator, as suggest by another reviewer. But you'll have the calculator with you anyway, because you're looking in the book to do a conversion. That's what happens to me. There is a depth of research in this book that I love. You can dive in and discover versions of a unit that you never knew existed (e.g., no, not just the two different feet in use in the US, but all the variants on the angular measure known as the 'mil'). You need to do the work: the authors give you all the basic data. Most of this book you (as one individual) will never need. But there are enough people who will, collectively, need all of it, to justify this book being in print almost forever. The price is right to have it on your bookshelf and it should last you a lifetime. Go for it!

More info then you'll ever need

This little book has saved me a couple of times. Full of data, tables, conversions, etc.... Spend the money and get yourself a copy. You'll be amazed how often you reach for it.

Great source of conversion factors.

This is a handy book with literally thousands of conversions. Look up your unit, and convert to metric, or convert from a metric unit to your unit. The units are identified by the country of origin including ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, China, etc.
