Which more recent books do you wish had been available when you were an undergrad student, grad student, or postdoc?

Arfken and Weber: Mathematical Physics or something similar.

The closest book I had to it was the CRC Handbook of Mathematical Stuff and the Schaum's Outlines Mathematical Handbook

I still have CRC (Chemical Rubber Co.) Standard Mathematical Tables, 15th Ed. I've had it since "back in the day."

My preference was the Schaum's as it had more pictures and a detailed discussion on coordinate systems, ones I'd never heard before. Also it was a bit lighter and easier to carry to class.
