Twenty-One Grams of Spirit and Seven Ounces of Desire

This book captures the struggle to make sense of measures that science is known for and goes further by speculating on what they could mean in our lives, and not just in the closeted halls of science labs and institutions. . . . The collection of essays is a suitcase of rulers, weights, and light meters taking their place alongside humanity’s spread of will, talent, and emotion, in the hope that in some spots, every now and then, there would be even a hint of meaning, even if only in passing.
