    1. Don't let the title fool you. This is 95% chemistry, and maybe 10% physics (5% where the two overlap). Still, it's sort of useful for a (condensed matter) physicist, though not as useful as a number of other standard resources, and practically useless in general for most physicists. I'd imagine if I were a chemist this would be a very important resource. But as a particle physicist this pales in comparison to something like the PDG I get in the mail every 2 years for free. On one hand, I probabl [...]

    2. Not much to review's a textbook. Just thought I'd add some of the books from my bookshelf at work (though I have the 92nd edition).

    3. Reviewing a reference book seems slightly silly, but whatever. The Venerable CRC continues to earn its reputation, at least up to this point.To be honest, with the Internet at my fingertips, I haven't opened this book in more than a decade.I'll prolly donate it it to someone who will get the book to the third world, where it can be useful again.If you value paper books, and need a reference like this, it's the one to get.

    4. This reference book is indispensable for any practicing chemist, or chemistry student. Many schools and companies have access to the online version, but it's still handy to have a copy on your desk, or in your lab. Get any edition you like, the data doesn't change much from year to year.

    5. Are you a science geek? This must be in your collection. A massive repository for chemical structures and physics. Great for cuddling up with a cup of cocoa and warm fire.

    6. Any physical scientist that applies such knowledge worships this tome. Even a non-practicing science fan with healthy curiosity needs a CRC for appetite whetting reference.
