      I have used it already even though I haven't gone through the whole book. It's fun just to sit and peruse through.

          I owned the 2nd edition years ago but lost it one day on a jobsite. Hopefully the person who picked it up has passed it on to others. This 4th edition is packed full of useful information on and off the jobsite. I find myself reading it at nights when I have free time.

            I will use this book alot. In my job I am always looking for reference material and now I know where to look first to find something. This is a great tool. It would be nice if it had better tabulation to make areas of interest easier to find.

                Had one of these some time back, used it frequently and managed to lose it, or misplace it, or it grew legs and walked off when visitors are present. This time I bought two!!
