SYNOPSIS: 'We all think we know what Alzheimer's does to the person who has it, and to those close to them, but we are wrong. John Zeisel's book dispels myth after myth, the most important of which is that the person with Alzheimer's is lost to us. Gently, but with compelling persuasion and logic, he teaches us how to improve beyond recognition the quality of life of a loved one with Alzheimer's. Just as important, he teaches us, the carers, how better to care for ourselves. I lost count of the number of times I gasped with recognition at his description of Alzheimer's behaviour and the corresponding reaction of carers. I would say to anyone living with a loved one who has Alzheimer's, read this book, reread it, keep it for daily reference. It will change more lives than just yours' JOHN SUCHET, presenter and author 'My wife, the writer Iris Murdoch, died of Alzheimer's after a seven year illness, so I am familiar with the situation so masterfully set out in John Zeisel's book. It is certainly the best book yet written about the predicament of Alzheimer's patients and carers and about the compensations of both those states' PROFESSOR JOHN BAILEY CBE 'This book rages with an optimism and determination to champion the cause of sufferer and carer alike. Zeisel's insights into Alzheimer's are as startling as they are fresh, forcing the reader to revisit the comfortable certainties of what they thought they understood to reveal that Alzheimer's has the ability to amplify our understanding of the human condition itself ... The humbling lesson from this book is that Alzheimer's provides a metaphor for modern life itself and to ignore it will leave us all the poorer. This should be required reading for anyone with an ambition to create the future. It is both a clarion call and a cautionary tale from a gifted narrator blazing with humanity' TIM SMIT, CBE, Chief Executive and co-founder of The Eden Project Quantity Available: 5.
