I'm way late to this party, but....

I don't know if I could ever narrow it down to *one* favorite book. I have a small library of them on the shelf. All have useful information in them.

As noted above, the easiest to use are the ones that will lay flat when opened, so that you can look at the page and reference something, without having to hold the book open.

Now, I need to go to the beginning of this thread, and read through the 23 pages of responses, to see what books I'm missing, and go add them to my collection!
