bookshelves: non-fiction, how-to, general-knowledge
Read from July 16 to 28, 2010

the indispensable book was a collection of 1-2 page "how-to" excerpts of very basic knowledge. the topics were broadly divided into 4 over-arching sections (home & yard, health & beauty, travel & sports, and accident & emergency) each divided into 3 sub-sections. topics ranged from how to arrange flowers to how to perform CPR... needless to say, none of these were comprehensive, but the basics remained intact.

as the title indicates - some of these are indispensable: how to jump start a car, treating a dog bite, using a life raft and tying a number of knots & hitches.

illustrations were a mixture of photographs and "period drawings" from the early 20th century and the topics included a bit of general knowledge (trivia) to help facilitate an understanding of the topic.
