Dear potential reader of Still Alice
You are considering reading this book for one or more reasons. Perhaps, a friend recommended it. Maybe you are hoping to learn more about Alzheimer's Disease. It might be you just want to know why everyone is talking about it. I don't know your reason(s), but if you want to know the answers to the following questions, read it.
*Can genetic testing determine if you will get Alzheimer's?
*Does Early-onset Alzheimer's differ from Alzheimer's Disease?
*What is it like to live with Alzheimer's physically?
*What is it like to live with someone who has Alzheimer's?
*How does it feel to have Alzheimer's?
If you have even an inkling of curiosity regarding these questions, you must read Still Alice
What is clear is that Alzheimer's patients cognitive abilities may be impaired but not their humanity. Their dignity may be unknowingly compromised at times, but not their worthiness. After reading this book, I wish I could send one big hug to every person living with this disease and their caretakers. It was an emotionally powerful book (to me) as well as informative.
Go now, before you forget. Pick up this book and read it now. Please trust me.
You can thank me later.
