Review
"Here is a real gem of a book. Compactly arranged in an attractive tabular style, this handbook has just about every equation, definition and formula that you might want in doing undergraduate-level physics and astrophysics. I really like it. It's one book that I won't lend out." Professor Paul Hodge, University of Washington, Seattle
"Invaluable, it will never be more than an arm's length from where I work. Every, and I mean, every physicist needs a copy." Dr. David Hughes, University of Sheffield
"This handbook is a stimulating and crisp synopsis of fundamental physics, to be enjoyed with profit by beginner and expert alike." Professor Adam Burrows, University of Arizona, Tuscon
"Better than a mere reference, this book is a great refresher course in undergraduate physics." Professor Douglas Heggie, University of Edinburgh
"Compactly arranged in an attractive tabular style, this handbook has just about every equation, definition and formula to meet the needs of practitioners of the subject. A must for every physicist and astrophysicist." Professor Douglas Lin, University of California, Santa Cruz
"An extremely useful collection of formulas from all branches of physics. Lecturers and students will find it invaluable." Professor Andrew King, University of Leicester
"the best part of his handy reference is its price: At this price, you could afford two, one for home and one for work just carry the small paperback home when you need it… useful." H.J. Melosh
