Those who have been diagnosed (or have had a family member diagnosed) with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia will find the information in this book, a revision of the edition published in 2003, both useful and enlightening. More than 500 entries provide information and explanations of conditions, medicines, situations, and medical terms associated with not only Alzheimer’s disease but with other dementia disorders as well. The entries, such as Agitation, Brain, Dental care, Episodic memory, and Race and Alzheimer’s disease, are arranged alphabetically and written in easy-to-understand language. Approximately one-third of this book is made up of appendixes listing resources for additional information and support. Readers will find contact information for national organizations, Alzheimer’s disease centers, local agencies on aging, international associations, and clinical trials. An overview of legal and financial issues (with forms), a further-reading list for the lay reader, a glossary, and an extensive bibliography of current research are included as well. Written for a general audience, this book is recommended for consumer-health collections. Also available as an e-book. --Laura Speer
