Hey Eddie, I dont' have that one but I've seen/used some of the Newnes books before. The best one I thought was their Hydraulics book. Really comprehensive, cheap and easy to carry! Saw one of these "pocket guides" that another guy had on a job awhile back...came from (published by???) Lee Valley Tools...think it was called the "builders manual" or something like that. Really small, and small print but hell...it had just about everything you could ever want to know in there....form military ranks & the phonetic alphabet to hardness number conversions, gear tooth calcs'...you name it...motor data...looked like a pretty good 'bang for the buck' but I got enough crap to lug around as it is!!

Take care,
