Annotation:SUMMARY: 'Powerful, insightful, tragic, inspirationaland all too true.' Alireza Atri, Massachusetts General Hospital Neurologist Readersare artfully and realistically led througha window into what to expect, highlighting the importance of allowing the person with the disease to remain a vibrant and contributing member of the community' Peter Reed, PhD, Director of Programs, National Alzheimer's Association With grace and compassion, Lisa Genova writes about the enormous white emptiness created by Alzheimers in the mind of the still-too-young and active Alice. A kind of ominous suspense attends her gathering forgetfulness, and Genova puts us, sympathetically, right inside her plight. Somehow, too, she portrays the familys response as a loving one, and hints at the other hopeful, helpful response that science will eventually provide. Mopsy Kennedy, Improper Bostonian 'An intensely intimate portrait of Alzheimer's seasoned with highly accurate and useful information about this insidious and devastating disease.' Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, co-author, Decoding Darkness: The Search for the Genetic Causes of Alzheimer's Disease Her (Alice's) thought patterns are so eerily like my own...amazing. It was like being in my own head and like being in hers. James Smith, diagnosed with Alzheimers, age 45 ...something for the world to read. Jeanne Lee, author of Just Love Me: My Life Turned Upside-Down By Alzheimers A laser-precise light into the lives of people with dementia and the people who love them. Carole Mulliken, Co-Founder of DementiaUSA 'A work of pure genius. This is the book that I and many of my colleagues have anxiously awaited. The reader will journey down Dementia Road in a way that only those of us with Dementia have experienced. Until now.' Charley Schneider, author of Don't Bury Me, It Ain't Over Yet
