In this poignant mother-daughter memoir, the author shares her mothers experience and feelings living with Alzheimers and provides her own perspective as both a psychologist and a potential carrier of the disease.Most books about Alzheimers focus on only one aspect of the disease from either a scientific or personal perspective. Not Going Gently expertly melds the two into an all-inclusive portrait of the disease. The author describes her own age-related memory changes and compares them to Alzheimers––the warning signs, myths, risks, diagnosis, and stages of the disease. While she honestly addresses this devastating illness that affects millions of people and their loved ones, she also offers hope through the most recent groundbreaking discoveries in science. Not Going Gently includes specific advice on the newest ideas in nutrition and lifestyle to prevent Alzheimers and gives suggestions for more enlightened treatment.
