Upon opening the pack I found the spine broken loose from the front hinge, not sure if it was a drop during shipment that caused this, or if there was another problem. BUT, this did let the spine cover to fall away from the book showing it to be bound nice and tight, should be a long lasting book assuming it stays attached to the cover.
Every engineer, handman, tinkerer, or DIY'er should have several copies of this book. It (and it's smaller "pocket size" versions) include a amazing wealth of useful knowledge. The hardest part is knowing what is in the book, and where to search it, because there are just so a lot of various pieces of information. There are tables for every imaginable piece of hardware, from the size of a "free fitting" clearance hole for a metric bolt, to the weight of a gallon of water, to the thickness of a certain gauge of sheetmetal. I think I own a 1/2 dozen copies of this amazing reference.
I bought for my dad as an xmas gift. He doesn't do the internet very well, so he was very excited. It never gets place away in the bookcase. It lives on his desk all the time, and I've noticed more and more pages with folded corners as he comes across useful bits of anted, I can have access to all this information within seconds on my smartphone, but there is something to be said for having a physical reference that's simple to flip through.
Someone told me about it, and I purchased the Pocket Ref, after spending a couple days with it, I showed it to the building super, his eyes lit up, and he said he had one for years but didn't know what happened to it, so I gave him the Pocket ver and ordered the larger Desk Ref, which sits on my desk about 15 inchs from my keyboard. It is a amazing bonus for any tradesman, it has something for everyone, sort of the that could save a costly mistake or your life,(no kidding), one of the best purchases of the year.
