As with Lisa Snyder's first book ... Speaking Our Minds -- What It's Like to Have Alzheimer's ... the author has a genuine dialogue with the reader. Her conversational style makes for easy reading, and directly quoting comments and responses of those with EOAD or early stage AD make each chapter even more powerful and authentic than it might otherwise be. This wonderfully written book makes a valuable contribution to those dealing with early stage/early onset AD and their caregivers for this book truly is an essential guide for how to live with a degenerative disease for which there is, at present, no cure. This is also a book that all neurologists, psychiatrists, and primary care physicians should be giving to their patients upon initial diagnosis of probable Alzheimer's. Too often, those recently diagnosed with AD and those who care for them are provided with little or no information about what they will be dealing with. After the initial shock of the diagnosis wears off, patients and caregivers have have many questions, many fears, and are stressed to the max ... but, sadly, often have nowhere to turn for help. This book can go a long way in providing that help and I recommend it without reservation. I wish I had this book when my wife was diagnosed.
I've given it as a gift several times and each was thrilled to learn of such a resource. It's a one-of-a-kind guide that is invaluable.
