Review

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."
--Library Journal (starred review)

"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...

Book Description

What would you do if your mother was having memory problems?
Five million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, with a new diagnosis being made every 72 seconds. Yet a survey of over 400 Alzheimer's specialists revealed that they would order more sophisticated tests and treatments for their loved ones than for the average patient.  Indeed, according to Psychiatry News, "Few Alzheimer patients get state of the art care."
Now this book from two leading experts gives the rest of us the inside track on:
*The best tests to determine if this is--or is not--Alzheimer's disease
*The most (and least) effective medical treatments
*Coping with behavioral and emotional changes
*Gaining access to the latest clinical trials
*Understanding the future of Alzheimer's
Clear, compassionate, and packed with information, The Alzheimer's Book sets a new standard for expert care.
