Deeply sad, accurate account of living with Alzheimer's. People need to be educated on this disease - it does not make the person living with it less of a person. Heartbreaking and deeply moving! I would highly recommend.

I thought this was a very insightful book on Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease. It chronicled the progression of the disease and personal conflict for both the individual and the ones that love them. I especially enjoyed the thorough description of the diagnosis process, the effects that cause Alzheimer's Disease and treatment. I read a few reviews before starting the books and was concerned as they said it was too clinical and thought it might be boring but for those that aren't familiar with the disease personally this gave a good understanding within a compassionate story.

Heartbreaking and vivid story of Harvard professor learning she has early onset Alzheimer's Disease, and the devastating changes to her life and her husband & chidrens' lives as the disease takes over her mind. The story is so well written, and gives the reader a personal understanding of what an Alzheimer's victim loses and struggles to deal with. Excellent book. I lost sleep over this tragic story.

This is the story of Alice, who forgets things sometimes, like names and appointments. She is a brilliant professor whose specialty is, ironically, language and linguistics. She is given the devastating diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's disease. You follow her life and relationships month by month, watching the continuing decline. It is brilliantly written - the author is able to subtly and slyly cause the reader to feel the loss and the frustration that Alice is experiencing. A completely different look at how it might feel to actually have this disease yourself. Excellent - everyone who knows an Alzheimer's victim should read this book...you will relate to them on a new level. D.
