Anytime a title can pass through fifteen editions, it must be doing something right, and it must be providing a valuable service. While McGraw-Hill has not made volume data available, the fact that this title has been published in numerous editions since 1956 allows for its place as a compulsory read, if not as an important reference. The subtitle of the book actually describes its place rather well: "An encyclopedia for Managers, Technical Professionals, Purchasing and Production Managers, Technicians and Supervisors." The book is divided into two parts, Materials -- Their Properties and Uses; and Structure and Properties of Materials. Either part can provide valuable insights into the nature of the materials used in the battery industry daily; both together provide interesting reading and a ready reference for those numerous questions which always arise at just the wrong moment.
