In this post, we will look at the book Units of Physical Quantities and their Dimensions by L. A. Sena.
The present book sets out in detail the prin­ciples of constructing systems of units, and also the fundamentals of the theory of dimensions. Together with detailed information on the SI system, which is the preferable one at present, a description is given of other systems of units, and also of some non-system units having prac­tical significance.
The book is intended for students of technical colleges and will also be helpful for physics in­structors in higher and secondary schools.
The book was translated from the Russian by G. Leib and was first published by Mir in 1972. 
Many thanks to Hitesh for this book.
