You wouldn't think you could make much of a book out of so narrow a topic, but Jay does a great job of it. I quite enjoyed the read.

This is a smorgasbord of odd questions that you may have wondered about. Could be a book for parents, so they could have an answer to at least have an answer to some of the questions a child would ask.

Good introduction to the current theories about causes of the disease and research into potential treatments / cures. Not an exhaustive overview for the lay person a la The Emperors of Maladies (about cancer), but if you have any interest in learning about Alzheimer's Disease I recommend it. A member of my family has been stricken so I was left depressed and frustrated as it seems we are many decades away from any kind of breakthrough.

Very interesting and informative, and written in Jay Ingram's distinctive style--I could imagine his voice as I read the book. Jay has a talent for presenting complex facts in a digestible way.
