Why not buy the handbook? The difference is mainly in the extras: more discussion, the free checklists, the electronic forms, and a larger more readable format. Personally I find staging a desk reference situation and I think the manual is better suited: I really cant imagine using a valuable pocket for the manual. (For the electronically interested various versions exist for PDA).
So whats in the book? Each anatomical site is introduced with a description of the changes from the 5th edition, the anatomy and regional lymphatics (where relevant) are described, and then the rules for staging are outlined. Summary tables, prognostic factors and a liberal reference section complete each site.
There are predone checklists, diagrams and ICD codes to help those setting up registries all of which come in electronic form as well.
