Praise for The Alzheimer’s Action Plan:
"Five million Americans have Alzheimer disease, and an even larger number with mild to moderate memory loss are at high risk of developing this illness. Murali Doraiswamy, a leading clinical researcher in Alzheimer disease, and Lisa Gwyther, a founder of the Alzheimer Association, have co-authored this timely, state-of-the-art book directed at patients with Alzheimer disease, their informants, and their primary care physicians....I fully predict that this exceptionally well-written, reader-friendly book will become the standard resource for patients with Alzheimer disease and their loved ones. Its up-to-date information, patient-centered approach, and focus on prevention and treatment directed at patients with incipient Alzheimer disease distinguish it from The 36 Hour Day by Nancy Mace and Peter Rabins, which is directed at caregivers of patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer disease."
--JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association)
"Check out "The Alzheimer's Action Plan," one of the best books about this illness to cross our desks. The authors, P. Murali Doraiswamy and Lisa Gwyther, explain -- in painstaking but lucid detail -- how to diagnose, treat and live with memory problems." --The Wall Street Journal
"Evidence-based content, conversational writing, and a good dose of humor make this an outstanding addition to collections on aging and caregiving and an excellent companion to Nancy L. Mace and Peter V. Rabins's The 36-Hour Day. Highly recommended."

"Probably the most complete book we’ve seen on Alzheimer’s in the many years we’ve looked at this disease." --AARP Prime Time Radio
"Highly recommended for consumer and aging health collections along with P. Murali Doraiswamy and Lisa P. Gw...

I have a family member with dementia, from Post Pump Syndrome, after having open heart surgery, and this explained a lot of questions I had.
Alzheimer's, dementia, is going to be a big problem in the future as we live longer.
I highly recommend this book.
This guidebook was essential to cope with the up's and
down's of the course of the disease. Also it is recommended
by the special course given by the Alzheimer's Assn.
The book gives the best descriptions of medications which are used to treat the disease and the behaviors associated with the disease.
It also is helpful in giving the basis for the classifications of the disease from mild to Moderate. I plan recommend the book to my Alzheimer's support group.
