It was a long time ago that I read this, but I remember loving it. Asimov starts from everyday objects and then goes by orders of magniture to larger and larger objects and then down to smaller and smaller objects. As I remember he does the same thing with temperatures and speeds and maybe some other quantities.

I found this book at an antiquarian bookshop accidentally. As I knew Asimov by one of the most renowned writers in science fiction, bought the book immediately, despite its yellowish pages, and here's the funniest thing about this history: it is much more about anything but Science Fiction. A certainty recommended book for physicians, engineers and for those who like Sagan and Hawking.
