Beyond Measure: The Hidden History of Measurement

I think you all might enjoy the audiobook edition of Beyond Measure: The Hidden History of Measurement, written and narrated by James Vincent.

It's a history of how we got to the measurement units and techniques in use around the world today. Including metric system, imperial systems, temperature (C and F), and even the flirtation with a new decimal calendar after the French Revolution.
