CRC Press announces the 100th anniversary of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.
“The Handbook reaches beyond chemistry and physics to provide organized, easy-to-use and a seemingly infinite number of charts and graphs on everything science-related. There is physical and/or chemical data useful to every scientific discipline” (CRC Press).

“I fell in love with it straightaway … for its tables were so full of information that I thought of it as containing the whole universe between its covers.”
– Oliver Sacks
