Dr. Constance L. Vincent: Not Going Gently

A dynamic fusion of story and science, Not Going Gently offers a fresh look at Alzheimer's and dementia from both personal and professional vantage points--and provides a plan for prevention. In this poignant mother-daughter memoir,  Constance L. Vincent, PhD, shares her mother's experience and feelings living with Alzheimer's as well as her own perspective both as a psychologist and a potential victim of the disease.

Most books about Alzheimer's focus on only one aspect of the disease from either a scientific or personal perspective. Not Going Gently expertly melds the two into an all-inclusive portrait of the disease. Dr. Vincent describes her own age-related memory changes and compares them to Alzheimer's--the warning signs, myths, risks, diagnosis, and stages of the disease.  While she honestly addresses this devastating illness that affects millions of people and their loved ones, she also offers hope through groundbreaking discoveries in science. Dr. Vincent includes specific advice on the newest ideas in nutrition, lifestyle, and building a cognitive reserve that she is following to prevent Alzheimer's and gives suggestions for more enlightened treatment.

There are two different paths of aging--and you can choose which one you take.
