Handyman in your pocket

This book provides the many little used or remembered variables to get projects completed correctly. Going to provide irrigation for your green house 118 feet out in your back yard? This book lets you know the friction losses of various types of water pipe you might use so that you end up with a stream instead of a trickle. Got 6/12 roof meeting a 10/12 and need to know how to use that combination square to get the right cut? This book has it. As Chuck Yeager says, don't wait for trouble; look it up and get it right the first time. A few bucks for this helpful little book can save you big in the long run.

Worth every penny!

This book is fantasic for those of us who don't have degrees in construction or engineering. Great to have for the occasional carpenter, electrician, plumber, etc.

The Handyman is great!

I can't believe just how much this book and the others in the Pocket Ref. series actually contain. As a full time engineering student, welder, and DIY'er, I don't think I'll ever need to know anything that isn't within the contents of this book. From frictional losses, to fasteners, to every type of conversion imaginable, it can be found in these pocket ref books. How I lived without them is a mystery to me.

Another fine Young reference book

I own a number of the pocket references in this series. I originally purchased the Pocet Reference , 1st edition, several years ago and found it to be quite useful. After I bought, The Handyman in a Pocket, I find it to be the reference I go to first. It seems to have a database of information directed at the home improver, hobbyist and/or gadget person. I even keep a copy at work where it is a mini-information sorce for practical reference tables in my work as a development chemist.

Be Sure to Check the Index

All I can say about this book is... be sure to check the index. This book is filled with more info than most of us will ever need. The only problem has been finding it. Well, this book has it someplace in its 760 some odd pages.
