That's a good basic set of volumes for a good price... I grew up reading mags, pubs and books long b4 the internet... Of course nowdays I would simply 'google' a subject that is of interest or concern and read the research papers, anecdotes, and blog info related to that subject...

The good thing about books is that all the pertinent ideas are put into context , which gives the reader big picture of any particular subject if it is well written...
