...What I think I like most [about this edition] is quite simply its authority, which comes from both its age and the constant revisions... This publication has a long and honorable track record... Ive had a copy since my undergraduate days and its easily the most consistently useful single source of information I have. ...Unequivocal recommendation for the library...a personal copy is a thoroughly worthwhile and long-lasting investment. ...A scientific must-have.

In our view, this is a well written and beautifully presented handbook, reasonably priced, and houses a diverse range of data and information required by professionals. The data contained within this edition is concise, consistent, and reliable, in-line with the aim of the Handbook. It is, in our opinion, a prerequisite for any investigational research in the physical sciences...
