Format: Paperback
Although there is a pocket version, go for this edition. Well organized, manageable, and quite handy for any occasion.Great choice as a desktop book.Maybe the best book I've ever bought for this value.I found some isolated lists a bit old-fashioned, but the book is worth the purchase.
