They are filled with everything you could ever need to know (almost). From math and science equations you thought you would never use after highschool, but were wrong. To long distance calling info such as all the country codes.
It's not as good as the internet in my opinnion. It's better!
This book is filled with almost everything you need for the REAL WORLD! Do you need to figure out how to rewire something in your house, it has the info (although I would not recommend anyone inept to be playing around with such large amounts of electricity). How do you flag down a boat, or just read those numerous flags- you can find it in these pages. Tying knots, classic morose code, how to find north, how to identify poisonous plants and berries, converting metric to Imperial, it goes on and on with the most basic of required knowledge that somehow no one knows.
There is a reason why they call this the 'MacGyver Book' (And if you don't know who MacGyver is, look him up, AND THEN buy this book!)
As this book will probably save your life one day!
Imagine the wonder of O'Reilly redesigning and publishing a few Nurshell books in this format, or CRC converting a few math and science references, or the ex-Wrox XSLT Programmer's Reference seeing the new printing ... I'm sure everyone who bought this book would have at least one more to add to this list.
you're the life of the party, no doubt - you can answer ANYTHING.
...and if you're at all involved in construction, it's indespensible.
(and if you're just curious about everything, it's really hard to put down!)
This book has everything you could possibly imagine and some things you didn't know existed.
