A useful reference book to have if you are a student or professional. It covers a wide spectrum of subjects. If you focus on one specific subject, then this is not for you. My job requires looking up ASHRAE standards, fluid flow properties and more; this allows me to reference one book, rather than a shelf full. For students, this will have more information than you will probably need as a student, but it is a reference that you will be able to keep and uses in your career. There is also a CD version that is little less expensive. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to have been updated recently. There are two things that I do not like. First is the paper. It is thin, similar to what you find in bibles. Second is the size. The book is bulky, so it is not one that you will carry around.
