CRC Handbook - Happy 100th!

CRC Press announces the 100th anniversary of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.

"The Handbook reaches beyond chemistry and physics to provide organized, easy-to-use and a seemingly infinite number of charts and graphs on everything science-related. There is physical and/or chemical data useful to every scientific discipline" (CRC Press).

"People who have interviewed me have commented on the extensive knowledge that I have about the properties of substances ... I attribute this knowledge in part to the fact that I possessed the Rubber Handbook ..."
- Linus Pauling

"I fell in love with it straightaway ... for its tables were so full of information that I thought of it as containing the whole universe between its covers."
- Oliver Sacks
