Alzheimer's: A Crash Course for Friends and Relatives is an enhanced edition of The All Weather Friend's Guide to Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Cail's book is a concise, inspiring guide for anyone who is dealing with Alzheimer's Disease. Her real life stories of those caring for friends or relatives with Alzheimer's are full of love and compassion, as well as fear and frustration. The stories allow her readers a first hand look into what it is like to live with this terrible disease and showcases the needs of those supporting loved ones in this struggle. This guide can be read in one sitting. I found it to be very helpful in a very efficient way. On another note Barnes and Noble truly needs to improve this website and make it more friendly for people wishing to leave a review. Leaving this was much harder then it needed to be.

This is a new edition of Mary Cail's "The All-Weather Friends Guide to Alzheimer's Disease". We all face tragedy. Most of us are better at handling our own than we are at trying to help our friends cope with theirs--whatever form it takes. Dr. Cail has written an intelligent, concise guide on how to be the kind of friend we'd all like to have when life takes a dark turn. Her "how to say it better" sample conversations are brilliant. Her precise analogies not only clarify, but make her writing a pleasure to read. This guide specifically addresses Alzheimer's, but it has so many applications beyond just this one disease. This book is as clearly written as anything I've read--fiction or non-fiction--in a very long time. Her narratives are illustrative and indicative of a true understanding of what it's like to live alongside people who suffer from this cruel affliction. Jane-Ashley Skinner
