Handy little reference to keep around for those times when Google isn't available. Small enough to fit in your junk drawer with the screwdriver, rubber bands, and hardware miscellanea, you might just be able to use it to MacGyver your way out of a jam. Personally, I use the conversion tables most frequently; it's surprising how often I need to convert scruples into drams.

My well-thumbed copy came to me when a good friend died; his wake was held in his home, and those of us in attendance took possession of those of his possessions that had meaning to us. I like seeing his contact info inside the front cover, written in his hand, knowing that he dog-eared the pages and left a bit of himself there.
