I was given a copy of this handbook as an award back in 1973 by Hughes Aircraft Company, that's 40 years ago. At the time I viewed it as the greatest collection of engineering data one never knew one needed to know. It is a compendium of data on all sorts of esoteric subjects not easily found in the normal literature. Subjects run from properties of superheated steam to "Expected Accuracy of Various Machining Processes." For an engineer, it makes interesting reading.
Today, with the Internet, it doesn't get pulled off the shelf as often as it once did, but it sure came in handy tonight when I needed empirical data on the sound attenuation of building materials.
