It's ok to ask for help. Nobody is perfect, and everyone struggles with setting the microwave clock. Thankfully, when you need some quick information in a pinch (excluding microwave tutorials), there's Pocket Guides, a seemingly endless collection of quick references notebooks that are small enough to fit in your pocket and give you the information you need when you need it. They're made from durable and waterproof plastic, are tabbed for easy reference, and are packed with the all the information you need and nothing you don't.
For the avid biker in your life, there's the Pocket Guide To Emergency Bicycle Repair. It's an easy-to-access comprehensive analysis of a host of issues any cyclist could encounter while in the saddle. It's amazingly well illustrated and is co-authored by a bike mechanic with over 25 years of experience. Everything you'd ever need is covered, including bike parts, key tools, a pre-ride check list as well as issues pertain to tires, chains, brackets, and more. The best part? The guide is small enough to fit into most bike bags.
