3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for, exactly, August 23, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Myth of Alzheimer's: What You Aren't Being Told About Today's Most Dreaded Diagnosis (Hardcover)
Although this book has a lot of interesting information, it's basically just a book about his theory about Alzheimer's, what causes it, and how to avoid getting it if you don't have it yet. There's also some discussion of nutrition, etc. While I don't necessarily disagree with him (his theory makes a lot of sense) it's not really all that I wanted to see in the book. I would have appreciated a chapter or two at first detailing basic information about Alzheimer's, what is believed about it, how it progresses, what can be expected as it progresses and any helpful ideas about dealing with it. My mother has just been diagnosed and I'd like some ideas about what to expect and what is actually going on in her body, as well as why she does some of the things she does. I haven't quite finished the book, but I haven't found any of that yet. And I found endless discussion about his theory a little tedious. It basically comes down to what you're looking for. Someday when I have time (my mother lives with me and keeps me busy now) I might enjoy this book a bit more. But right now, I really wanted a lot more help dealing with and understanding Alzheimer's, not theories about what causes it.

There are many other books on coping with Alzheimers in the family. That's not what this book is written for. Find those other books !! There are many of them. Go to an AlzAssoc. meeting or get their reading list.
