Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: 1995, trade paperback, Kodansha, NY. 242 pages. A fun, informative title, which tells readers all about the odd facts relating to the subject of measurements. Here are brief, factual essays covering such topics as: how hot would hell be, what is the pressure of a shark's bite, how much air pressure is required to burst a condom, and--something we'd all like to know--what would Santa Claus have to do to deliver all his presents in a single night? Fascinating; you could spent hours going through this nifty title.
