Doody ReviewsReviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Abbott Laboratories)
Description: This book provides an all-too-realistic, all-too-close-to-home examination of the world of those with Alzheimer's and the people who care for them. The author shares her intimate interviews and unique insights into this devastating disease. It is both a heartwarming and a heart-wrenching experience for readers.
Purpose: The purpose is to open the window into the world of those with Alzheimer's disease and get a first-hand look at their stories and experiences of living and coping with this unforgiving disease. This book goes far beyond the typical medical explanations and theories. The author surrounds readers in reality and emotion and, in turn, fuels the readers' passion to learn more about the disease.
Audience: Clearly, the audience includes anyone who wants to learn more about what it is like for seven diverse individuals to cope with Alzheimer's disease.
Features: This is undoubtedly a weekend read as it is easy to get drawn into in the stories and lives of the seven individuals so characteristically described by the author. Bea, Bill, Jean, Bob, Booker, Betty, and Consuelo will capture readers' hearts, and I doubt there is anyone out there who cannot identify with at least one of the cases.
Assessment: There are books we have to read. This is one you will want to read. Insightful, impressive, and an inspiration — highly recommended.
