Aah! Good old, "H.H."! Yes, you can also find a copy of that book in my bathroom... Ummm... I mean library, too.
Even though I've probably read that book 100 times, I still find useful tidbits or I am reminded of things that I should or should not be doing, even years after I pulled my copy of the book out of storage in the attic where I keep all my old school books.

If you don't have it, get it. Many people consider it to the "The Manual."
