Default Booleans

Sorry if this is a broad question, but what is the difference between the union, intersect, and difference boolean tools?

its in help if you search for boolean ... promise!

if you search boolean it will be described under mesh> boolean under modelling

it describes them this way:

Union: Combines the volume of the meshes.
Difference: Subtracts the first mesh from the second.
Intersection: Leaves only the shared volume of the meshes.

and booleans are rubbish.
