# confusing wording

The sentence:

"Like the commutator, the associator measures how close the algebra $ A$ is being associative."

implies that the commutator measures how close the algebra is to being associative! Maybe something like

"Just as the commutator measures how close an algebra is to being commutative, the associator measures how close it is to being associative"

would make it more clear.
