Overview

Defying Dementia: Understanding and Preventing Alzheimer's and Related Disorders by Robert Levine

Written to encourage defensive action, Levine's book is meant both as a guide and a reference to understanding and preventing dementia. It is intended for lay people interested in learning about dementia and measures that can be taken to repel its onslaught, as well as for caregivers and family members of impaired patients. Defying Dementia is presented in two sections. First, Levine explains various types of dementia, its increasing incidence and current treatments, and the treatments tested and on the horizen. The role of physiology and fresh insights from the field of genetics are also included. The second section focuses on methods that can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle to avoid dementia.
