We were just talking about these, because some of the handouts we give customers are those reference books. But we've noticed that even the old-timers are now reaching for their smart-phones when they have a question.

I've got a number of little pocket handbooks and while they are full of useful information, I literally cannot remember the last time I looked at one.

Yeah I have it on my iPhone using the kindle reader app. If there's something I don't know I need a real book or computer, but if I just need to sanity check something it is super handy.

I'm old school and keep ol' Ugly in my back pocket all day every day. Don't always need it, but it's there. I have literally worn several out over the years. Oh, and print still works when the cell phone runs out of battery.

If you have an amazon account they usually offer a bundle package thats what I have (2011). Then I download to my kindle which is linked to my phone....even when I didn't have a smart phone I had hard copy. Like someone said 90% of field questions right there, motors, sizing, even the pipe bending section is good if you don't bend a lot of pipe it is easy to forget multiplier/angle stuff...:thumbsup::thumbsup: 2 thumbs up.

What's funny, I was talking to a day laborer about electrical the other day. He said he could do anything in a home electrically. I asked him if he knew how to calculate wire size etc. He said he has that little yellow book.
