Got a nice little book today

While checking out at my local Ace Hardware, I noticed a little book that is black and a little bigger than 3" x 5". It is called "POCKET REF" and is by
Thomas J. Glover. It was $12.98.
In it, there are zillions of facts, information, knots, formulas, weights, welding, symbols, taps and dies, squares cubes and roots, rope, metallurgy, conversion charts, constants, and everything from A to Z. Well, from abrasives to wounds, abdominal.
I snatched one for personal references, and for when someone here asks a question, and I want to appear bigger and smarter than I am in person.
It has a trig section that covers the Pythagorean theorem question posed not long ago, along with working with triangles other than right triangles.
Absolutely tons of information for those of us whose minds are already so full we can't keep up with our own cell phone numbers. Or car keys.
If you see one, pause and take a look. There is another that deals with welding and metal, and I would like to find it, but I forget its name right now. A pocket size book. If you know the name, please post it.

Didn't notice when I bought it, but yep, it is third edition. This is going to make good bathroom reading.

Actually Grant, I bought my Third Edition of Pocket Ref over a year ago. Looking inside, it says:
"Copyright 1989-2002 by Thomas J Glover 3rd Edition 7th Printing - August 2003"
So the 3rd Edition was actually published in 2002 (and my 7th printing of the 3rd Edition was printed in August of 2003).

Harbor Freight sells it for $9.95. Its handy as hell and a lot smaller than Machinerys Handbook <G>

Hey Gunner,
I'm on a Third Edition. Keeping all three. I saw these for sale in Detroit at HF too, but they were not the latest edition. Not that you would miss a whole lot if you didn't know, but they are a bit behind there, so maybe that's why the $ difference.
Take care.

There have been numerous versions of the Pocket Reference type books, and all of 'em contain such an extensive amount of info, that they're just too good to pass up if you have an interest in their particular contents.
They're a lot like having an Audel's series worth of info in a pocket-sized book.
I've seen, and have a few titles, for electronics, the NEC/wiring info, Computers, Construction/carpentry and many other topics.

I got one of those back in 1993 and loved it. I also have the "Handyman In Your Pocket" edition which is thicker and has even more gobs of stuff, but isn't the pocket ref plus some. The pocket ref has some metalworking stuff the handyman doesn't, but the handyman has a brief welding section, however.
