Michael Ellenbogen takes on Alzheimer's disease as it progressively robs him of his most inner being, his mind. He tells the compelling story of courage with remarkable insight into his own failing abilities as he slips from high-powered corporate America into the fog of dementia. Michael tells us what Alzheimer's disease really is, and he does it with absolute honesty and candor. Michael not only takes on Alzheimer's disease and the dementia that is progressively pulling his mind into the darkness, he has written about it in a way that makes it real as well as personal to the reader. Lastly, of course, Michael has become a vocal advocate for Alzheimer's patients everywhere, and thereby has done a great and lasting service by writing his personal account.
This is an important book, a unique commentary on Alzheimer's disease that needs to be heard. It is a must-read for anyone diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, a family member or friend of someone afflicted with Alzheimer's, or anyone interested in courage and one individual's strength in the face of such adversity.
Blessings to all that read this book. Blessings to each person touched by Alzheimer's and Lewy Body Dementia. Thank you Michael.
I recommend this to anyone with Alz. that wants more out of life than just giving into the disease. I recommend this to professionals especially those who diagnose dementia because tests alone can be deceptive, the interview is so important because one has to understand the severity of the disease. This book gives great detail and insight into what it is like living with Alz.. A caregiver will be given insight into what a person with Alz. is dealing with.
This book at times is very raw but leaves one better educated and hopeful that people like Michael exist and doing their best to advance the Alz. cause.
Person with Alz.
Michael Ellenbogen candidly answers that question and more. The resolve to put his experiences in writing for our benefit illustrates Michael's level of professionalism and compassion.
I would say "From the Corner Office to Alzheimer's" is a must-read for family and friends of Alzheimer's patients but that would be only partly true. "From the Corner Office to Alzheimer's" is for everyone because we never know when or whom this devious disease will strike. It could very well be any of us.
Only when we are able to put a loving face to this disease will the support needed to win the fight and end this dreaded disease be accomplished. I know this book is both accurate and heartfelt because I was diagnosed with AD 6 years ago.
