The above titled book was edited by Harold Etherington and published by McGraw-Hill in 1958.

A giant tome worth whatever it costs you! Over 1500 pages of "just the facts ma'am".

I have already posted a couple of neat hunks of data gleaned from this book.

Did you know that commonly mined uranium, U-238 continuously, spontaneously fissions sitting on a desk?! Thats right, 7 fissions occur every second in a small 1kg ingot of the metal.

Lots of great tables in this book and lots of hard to locate info is shoved between the covers in this puppy.
