The binding, on the other hand, was an intense disappointment. The cover cracked at the spine hinge the very first time I opened the book. I've never seen that on a brand new book before. It usually takes 30 years for the materials to get brittle enough to lead to this.
I could get a replacement, but it would likely end the same way, so I guess I'm going with tape.
Also, to me it feels somewhat precious, and even though the book may be used by dirty people, in a dirty place, the reverence for keeping it pristine is palpable and enjoyable. But I digress.
As far as, should I buy one for the first time?
If I was buying one for the first time, I'd be glad to get this one. Especially for the price for which I got it, 63 dollars with shipping from Rainbow_Books, you can not beat that with a Baseball Bat anyday of the week that'sa great deal!!! IF it's available to you from Rainbow_books and it's 59 dollars plus shipping, BUY IT! I bought from them, more than once now, and they are quick, the item arrives relatively well packaged, and mine was totally new and pristine, so. DO IT.
I am a mechanical engineer by trade. One of my coworkers had this at their desk and I constantly found myself borrowing it so I finally got my own. This is a great reference in a very convenient package. The built in tabs are very nice to have. my coworkers did not have them so they were sticky noting tons of pages (not that you wont find yourself doing that on this version either).
Something that doesn't actually matter, but I still have an opinion on:
Lame cover design. Feels like the Guinness book of world records. Almost bought an old version when it had the nice leather bound covers. Hopefully this one is more durable than I think it will be since I will probably get a lot of use out of it and don't plan on replacing it.
Problem I have is I was not provided a CD key in my new copy of Machinery Handbook 30, which means it is a paperweight. I was really looking forward to looking up information digitally, but it looks like that is not going to happen.
