This book is heartbreaking. While I'm sure Alzheimer's disease is always terrible, the early-onset version seems particularly terrible. To be shut down in your early 50's, while you're still in the midst of your career and you think you have many many good years ahead, and to be so awfully aware of the degeneration of not only your memories but all of your faculties, really, well it's almost unbearable just to even read about.

This is not one I am likely to forget (no pun intended), even with my notoriously bad memory. I found this book to be educational, moving, and beautiful.

Natasha Wow I want to read this!

Lucy I chose this for a book club and we had the best discussion. I was surprised hie many in the group i attend have been personally affected by Alzheimer's. A great read that has stayed with me for years.
