Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Rose poignantly describes his painful experiences of living midlife with Alzheimer's disease. He recalls the early signs and symptoms; the process of medical diagnosis and treatment; telling friends and family; coping with the confusion, fear, and anger; and family involvement in decisions of property, caregiving, and support. Rose makes accurate references to the medical tests and treatment procedures. He describes his family's reactions and gently stresses the importance of spiritualty as a coping mechanism. Personal quality-of-life issues are addressed as the author's awareness of the beauty in the ordinariness of life is increased through this experience. A highly individual, personal experience with universal appeal. Recommended for general public library collections.?Linda Malone, Walter Reed Hospice, Gloucester, Va.

From Booklist

Larry Rose was a vital, gifted engineer in his forties when Alzheimer's struck. In this first-person account, Rose shares his heartbreaking and sometimes heartwarming skirmishes with a disease he has been battling since its diagnosis in 1992. His resilience, courage, and optimism are phenomenal as he copes with the anger, fear, and loneliness of an illness that is stealing his mind. With his friend and caregiver Stella providing support, Rose remains an independent man who drives alone to his cabin in the Ozark Mountains and volunteers to take experimental drugs. This remarkable work shows the disease's effects not only on its victim but on those who encounter him--from devoted cafecronies to a supposed friend who cheats Rose out of a large sum of money. This is an inspiring account of a man of acceptance, wisdom, and faith who is fighting the good fight with the hallmark grace and humor of the truly brave. Patricia Hassler
