I received this as a gift for my 20th birthday from my father after deciding to change my major from computer science to astrophysics. My math skills were turning out to be stronger then my high school years left me thinking they were, so the door to my first choice was back open. It was a hard choice in some ways because CS majors were making good money back in the mid 80's and astronomers didn't have too many openings.

When I opened the gift I actually teared up, this is a powerful tool for the serious student and it showed my fathers approval of the change in major. My mother was worried by my reaction, afraid that I didn't understand what the gift meant to Dad. I did. Along with him handing my my diploma for my B.S. and the toast he gave at my wedding, that was one of my favorite moments with him.

I've long since given up on the long haul that would have led me to an astrophysics Ph.D., oddly enough ending up back in computers. I still sometimes take this book off the shelf and remember those happy times deep in the study of the nature of the universe.

Sorry, this was more about me then the book. Now for a few words about the book. If you need a physical copy of this type of material, there is absolutely no substitute for this book. Get the newest edition available to you, you'll keep annotate it and keep it for many years to come. ( )

This thick leatherbound book was my grandfather's, and he gave it to me as a lad. It may have been partly-responsible for my subsequent obsession with books. I was in love with the idea that everything I might need to know about the physical universe could be neatly summarized with 1300+ pages of onionskin. If only that were so!

Disambiguation notice
The 45th edition (1964) substantially revised the material, cutting out 1500 pages of material that wasn't narrowly focused on chemistry and physics. Therefore I've separated out the 45th edition on (Eds. 45-51 edited by C. D. Hodgman, eds. 52-89 by R. C. Weast, 90-91 D. R. Lide, and 92 on by W. M. Haynes) from the early versions (edited by W.R. Veazey and C. D. Hodgman).

Book description
The latest edition of the world's most popular scientific reference features tables and reference sections on everything from the Periodic Table to the bond lengths in organometallic compounds. Featuring the latest facts and figures, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics contains all the most frequently used data in science, including the periodic table of the elements, basic constants and units, and geophysical data.

For decades, physicists and chemists have turned to this handbook as their primary source for reliable data. Every year, material is critically evaluated, new data is added, and existing tables are updated. The 81st edition includes eight new and forty revised or updated tables. Nowhere else will you find such a useful compilation of scientific data. Don't be left behind. Your research deserves the best data available - the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics has it.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0849307406, Hardcover)

Chemistry and Physics, always two closely related sciences, have been brought into more intimate relations by recent developments in research and our increasing understanding of matter and energy. One of the goals of the editor and the publisher is to provide a reference book which will assist in providing certain information to further this understanding. The editor attempts to include material which has a high probability to find extended use in many branches of chemistry and physics and the closely allied sciences. This 1st Student Edition provides certain core data and information that are constant or which change only slightly over an extended period of time.

(see all 8 descriptions)

Mirroring the growth and direction of science for a century, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, now in its 91st edition, continues to be the most accessed and respected scientific reference in the world, used by students and Nobel Laureates. The benchmark of scientific reference since the days of Einstein, Eddington, and Planck, no book is held to a higher standard than the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. Perpetually vetted for misspellings, miscalculations, misperceptions, and misnomers, it is republished every year, so no mistake needs to be long abided, no enhancement long awaited. - Publisher.… (more)
