The Forgetting: Alzheimers; Portrait of an Epidemic – David Shenk

A remarkably well-written book, as the author says, his intention was to: ‘on the one hand, catalogue the horrors of Alzheimr’s, and on the other, relay the hopeful story of the race to cure the disease,’ however, throughout the book, not only does he write about how the disease and the research into its cure progresses, but also how he changed his thinking as he immersed himself in the communities of sfferers, caregivers, and scientists. It’s a clever book, but it’s friendly and readable. It makes an interesting subject even more compelling.
