Handbook is a type of reference work, or other collection of instructions, that is intended to provide ready reference. A handbook is sometimes referred to as a vade mecum (Latin, "go with me") or pocket reference that is intended to be carried at all times. Handbooks may deal with any topic, and are generally compendiums of information in a particular field or about a particular technique. They are designed to be easily consulted and provide quick answers in a certain area. Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handbook
