“Own one AND a Backup…”

This book is like the internet, but with stuff you can actually use. Love it. It’ll be on the stocking stuffer list from now until forever.

We’ve used it two days in a row to answer necessary questions for our business and it took about as long as an internet search to find the answers we were looking for.

“MORE than a source of information…"

The “Pocket Ref” is a great conversation piece. It is perfect for setting up and winning rigged bets with friends … It has always been a handy reference when there was no access to the internet. Can you believe that? no access to the internet? This little book is chocked full of conversions and charts for things you had no idea you didn’t know…
