What is a good book to read if I want to learn more about Alzheimer's disease?
I am looking for a book that explains Alzheimer's/dementia in layman's language but has knowledge that doctor's know. I've read several books on caring for the Alzheimer's patient but want more medical knowledge.
There are many wonderful resource / support books out there right now. I would check with the local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association in a town near you - they can offer suggestions on particular topics such as the doctor's perspective on the disease. One of the very best resources is right here at caring.com where you can view "Recommendations for Alzheimer's Books / 2009 Editor's Pick" and choose one or more that appeal to you and meet your specific needs.
