'... all physicists need equations, just like animals need meals. And when the equation hunger arises, and you want to satisfy it quickly, efficiently and satisfactorily, Woan's book is what is required. The Cambridge Handbook of Physics Formulas is just the ticket for the efficient undergraduate physicist and engineer.' David Hughes, Times Higher Education Supplement
