This was a brilliant look at Alzheimer's from the perspective of the person suffering from the disease. Having beent ouched by this horrible disease personally this book hit home on a number of levels. I wish I had read it when I was going through the stages with my father. One knows the toll it takes on the family but sometimes forgets how devastating it can be for the person suffering from it. A must read for anyone ... but especially those faced with Alzheimer's in loved ones.
