Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Blocksma presents the answers to many questions about numbers, from age to zip codes, in a handy alphabetized format. Over 100 areas are discussed, including bar codes, calendars, prime rate, paper clips, produce, land measurements, blood alcohol level, circles, money, insulation, ships, metrics, lumber, sunscreen, nails, time, postal rates, weather, snow, and Social Security numbers. This is interesting and useful, and will make a good browsing book as well as reference item. A real time-saver.
