The need for measurement arose when land holdings had to be measured after every flooding of the Nile. In time measuring became an accepted norm and different nations devised different units...different measures. To avoid inconsistency and ambiguity, standardization of measurement was necessary. The book traces this journey of numbers and units and unveils treasured nuggets of information hidden in the quantified data
