Forgetting: Alzheimer’s: Portrait of an Epidemic
David Shenk (au). Afflicting nearly half of all people over the age of 85, Alzheimer’s disease kills nearly 100,000 Americans a year as it robs them of their memory & wreaks havoc on the lives of their loved ones. This is a scrupulously researched, multilayered analysis of Alzheimer’s & its social, med., & spiritual implications. Presents much more than a detailed explanation of its causes & effects & the search for a cure. Captures the disease’s impact on its victims & their families, & looks back through history, explaining how Alzheimer’s most likely afflicted such figures as Jonathan Swift, Ralph Waldo Emerson, & Willem de Kooning. The result is a searing, powerfully engaging account of Alzheimer’s disease, offering a grim but sympathetic & ultimately encouraging portrait.
