Does anybody edc Pocket Ref by Thomas J. Glover? It has been a must-have for me ever since I got it.  This little book has proved to be the most useful thing in my library for as long as I've had it.

I have the second edition printed in 2001 keep forgetting to buy an update. Such a great reference but I don't EDC it. With google and wikipedia I keep forgetting to even open the book. 

 

Now that you mention it EDCing this book is a really good idea. Sure small enough for a backpack but I wouldn't pocket carry it.

 

I was flipping through it and found battery info - Ni-Cad is the most advanced batteries in my copy. Yup I need an updated copy.

Found the wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Pocket_Ref

 

Some folks here may like Pocket Partner written for LEOs.

 

Pocket Ref is limited because of it can only have so much information without being too thick and was last printed in 2010.

 

Deskref has a few hundred more pages but last printed in 2010.

With Google it seems unnecessary unless preparing a library of volumes should one find himself in an electricity free environment. Believe me, I have that too.

However, no, I don't see pocket ref as a needed EDC item.

Similarly, I pay money for a ref called Epocrates but have drug and similar books over the place.
