On Pluto : Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's: 2nd Edition
by Greg O'Brien and Lisa Genova




Overview -
This is a book about living with Alzheimer's, not dying with it. It is a book about hope, faith, and humor--a prescription far more powerful than the conventional medication available today to fight this disease.

Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the US--and the only one of these diseases on the rise.
More than 5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or a related dementia; about 35 million people worldwide.

Greg O'Brien, an award-winning investigative reporter, has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's and is one of those faceless numbers. Acting on long-term memory and skill coupled with well-developed journalistic grit, O'Brien decided to tackle the disease and his imminent decline by writing frankly about the journey. O'Brien is a master storyteller. His story is naked, wrenching, and soul searching for a generation and their loved ones about to cross the threshold of this death in slow motion. On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's is a trail-blazing roadmap for a generation--both a "how to" for fighting a disease, and a "how not" to give up
