,I just finished the book, Still Alice by Lisa Genova. The author does an excellent job of describing the onset symptoms and follows the Alzheimer's progression. The book was very moving and I felt it was very realistic. It makes you think about how you would deal with this diagnosis. It helped me understand my friend Mari 's journey. A very good, quick read. It provided me with a good insight as to what is going on in "their minds" and demonstrates how Alzheimer patients literally lose their mind!
