This is the sixth edition of a popular pocket-sized compendium of information about clinical geriatrics published by the American Geriatrics Society. It supercedes the fifth edition of 2003.
Its purpose is to provide practitioners caring for older persons an up-to-date, convenient, pocket-sized reference of practical information, guidelines, assessment instruments, contact information, and much more. These are indeed worthy goals and each edition of this book has fulfilled these objectives.
Every prescriber and practitioner caring for older persons will find this book a boon companion. …

Think of life before the Internet. Think of life in caring for older persons before this pocket wizard. Similar, aren’t they?
