Elaine Landau is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6?Beginning with several case studies, Landau carefully describes the effects of the fourth leading cause of death among adults and places special emphasis on the anguish this incurable disease causes victims and the loved ones charged with their care. The text details the stages of the disease, possible causes, and specific mental and physical changes in patients. Research and FDA issues are included in a discussion of steroids, fetal-cell transplants, the use of Tacrine, and other drugs. The writing is crisp and well organized in the prolific author's familiar direct style. The material will be useful for reports as well as for families touched by the disease. The black-and-white photos are mostly decorative, and only include one informational photo (a brain scan). An extensive listing of related sources and Alzheimer's Association Chapters throughout the country are appended.?Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
