My father's brain : life in the shadow of Alzheimer's / Sandeep Jauhar.

Summary:
"Almost six million Americans--about one in every ten people over the age of sixty-five--have Alzheimer's disease or related dementias, and this number is projected to more than double by 2050. What is it like to live with and amid this increasingly prevalent condition--an affliction that some fear more than death? In My Father's Brain, the distinguished physician and author Sandeep Jauhar sets his father's descent into Alzheimer's alongside his own journey toward understanding this disease and how it might best be coped with, if not cured." -- inside front jacket flap.
