During a lecture yesterday a professor was stuck on trying to remember a value for a constant and pulled a small book out of his shirt pocket and got the right value. I asked what the book was and he couldn't recall the title as his was so old the cover was a smeared mess but he was pretty certain it was a book that Lawrence Berkeley sent out every few years about current values for constants and such. Does anyone know what it is I'm speaking of and where to get one? Thanks!

It's probably the Particle Data Book.

I used to get one every other year.
