"The entire work is heavy on math and includes excellent illustrations. In addition to the usual author and subject indexes, the reader will find indexes to the tables, figures, and equations, the latter being particularly useful. Because areas like communications and biomedical engineering are far from static, this new edition is a worthwhile addition as a technical reference." -John M. Robson "strongly recommendedThis definitive handbook is a must for any reference library." M. S. Roden, California State University, Los Angeles "Every major topic is thoroughly covered, and every important concept is defined, described, and illustrated. Conceptually challenging but carefully explained articles will be equally valuable to practicing engineers, researchers and students." -Electronic Servicing & Technology

Here is a brief list of real handbooks I own which have the necessary depth to use in the real world:
1. Condon's Handbook of Physics
2. Eshbach's Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals
3. Mark's Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineering
4. Markus Guidebook of Electronic Circuits
5. Potter's Handbook of the Engineering Sciences
6. Tuma's Handbook of Physical Calculations
7. Grigoriev's Handbook of Physical Quantities
8. CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics
9. Allen's Astrophysical Quantities
10. Springer Handbook of Condensed Matter and Materials Data
11. CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics
All of these works contain substantially more information per page than The Engineering Handbook.
The organization is also somewhat questionable. The math and materials sections are in the back of the book, instead of the front. The chapter on linear systems and models is separated from the chapter on control systems, etc.
I don't want to imply that there aren't any worthwhile chapters. I liked the chapter on wind energy...
Recommended to sophomore engineering students, not working engineers.
Keep in mind that no matter how big (2800+ pages) an engineering reference could be, there is no way that you will be able to find every single detail in every field of engineering covered in enough depth to write your thesis. You will find the fundamental information, principles, quick calculations methods, illustrations, and diagrams, which will save the industrial practitioner valuable time.
I really believe this book is an excellent engineering reference. I am an Electronic Engineer, but I have been working for the last 16 years as an Instrumentation, Automation and Process Control Engineer for the Oil & Gas Industry. As a result I have been involved with Chemical and Mechanical Engineering issues in a day to day basic. I found this book to be a helpful reference in those fields and also in other very different fields, like engineering economics and management.
I own this book, and for me it was a very good investment.
