The result is a nice, small book that's easy to tote around, but has everything you need for any back-of-the-napkin calculation you might need to do.
This seems to be a self-published book. It is well laid-out, with good formatting and an extensive list of formulas. It specifically disclaims any responsibility for accuracy on its copyright page.
The title, however, is "practical databook." There are some tables of data, which the notes list as being taken from other sources, but this book is primarily a list of formulas with very, very little explanation and few examples (the pictures under the Pearson Correlation Coefficient on page 34 being a notable exception).
If you know the formulas or need a data point that you could look up on the internet anyway, then this book is a reminder of how to "plug and chug." If you need a refresher, then this is not the book for you.
