This book pretty well has every bit of information that could be useful in everyday life, things from chemistry, mathematical formulas, electrical wiring, tools, fasteners (bolts, screws nails, and their best uses), there's airport codes in it, area codes, glues, solvents and paint, general science, conversion tables, and even knots. There's a little bit of everything for both the handyman at home and science oriented people. It's a great reference to have.

The only detraction on this is the print is incredibly tiny. For me that's fine, but my father couldn't read it. So I purchased the desk ref edition for him and kept the pocket ref for myself. Great books, the both of them. Just keep in mind if your eyesight is a bit poorer you may want to grab the desk ref version instead. For someone like my father who is getting up there in age and eyesight not as great, I would highly recommend the desk version over the pocket version. Desk Ref, Hard Cover

If you’ve ever watched the MythBusters TV show you probably saw them pick up and refer to a small black reference book every once in a while.

Although this reference book may seem like an odd book to have for survival, much of the information in the book is invaluable if you need to build or fix something on your own – without an expert to help you. If you want even more reference information there’s a 1,280 pages “DeskRef” too – but measuring 6 x 1 3/8 x 9 inches, and weighing 2 pounds, it’s a little big to take with you in the outback. Buy this book! You won’t regret it!

Sure, in today's digital age, one could easily and quickly look up facts or information with their phones.. But a signal isn't always available, and only 46% of Americans even *own* a smartphone. I'm among those 54%, and this is so immensely chock-full with facts and information that I probably still won't even need one. Now all that's left is to familiarize myself with the table of contents..

It is a great conversation piece. It is perfect for setting up and winning rigged bets with friends. This book is a grand opportunity irritate friends and family with useless little facts about things they have absolutely no interest in knowing. It's nice to finally have the 4th edition in hand. I bought the 2nd edition many years ago and it has always been a handy reference when there was no access to the internet. Can you believe that? no access to the internet? This little book is chocked full of conversions and charts for things you had no idea you didn't know.

Holy crap this is awesome!! I work in maintenance and am often expected to be able to fix everything. I like muscle memory or the ability to do things I know or have done before. This book is great! Do I need to know the specific gravity of Igneous rocks? I know it with this book. Others will say this has small print. True, it is pocket sized so what would you expect.
I am soon to purchase the desk sized book. Pumps and Tanks, Trigonometry, Planetary information, metal strength markings on screws, weather information, electrical wiring, and concrete strength are some of the items covered so far.
Just buy this and you will find it useful

This book is like the internet, but with stuff you can actually use. Love it. It'll be on the stocking stuffer list from now until forever.

We've used it two days in a row to answer necessary questions for our business and it took about as long as an internet search to find the answers we were looking for.

I originally purchased this book last year for my boyfriend for Christmas. He's been carrying it around since and is always finding a use for it. There's not much this book doesn't have, and is just an amazing, jam packed reference book. I just purchased it for another person, who is incredibly excited to have it. This is the perfect gift for anyone who likes DIY or just figuring things out out on their own. It makes an awesome stocking stuffer, or any other reason for an inexpensive, small gift that will surely be incredibly useful to anyone who receives it.

It's small in size, and as the name of the book alludes to, it's truly a pocket reference. There's everything from math equations to bolt sizes, chemical properties, conversions, and ways to estimate quantity. All organized in an easy to find and apply guide.
